    Comments about ESP LTD B-205 5-String Bass:

    Great bass for the money. ESP LTD quality is always great. The guitar comes setup and you can play it in standard tuning right out of the box which is nice. Always stinks to get a guitar and then have to spend an hour or so adjusting string height and checking intonation. Fretwork on the bass is nice. Slight noise from the bridge pickup when you have the gain up. Not terrible just noticeable. Will probably replace the pickups eventually. Other than that this bass is ready to go. Great playing, great looking. Worth the cash.

      Comments about ESP LTD B-205 5-String Bass:

      I tried all the basses in the store, This one I kept going back to. I love this bass. It feels good to play. I've been playing guitar and bass for years, and one thing I've learned over the years the instrument has to feel good in your hands. I've own jazz basses, and I love this one. I just didn't like playing the fretless jazz bass. Hey that's my thing. Give this bass a chance and I know you will love it.

        Comments about ESP LTD B-205 5-String Bass:

        I bought this bass to upgrade from the 4 string starter Ibanez I had got off of CL. From the moment I picked it up to play it I knew that it was perfect. It plays great, great tone. If you're on the fence about getting this Bass just know that i got it and absolutely love it.
