Made to play hard and fast, with unmistakable attitude, this signature LTD was crafted to the specifications of the one and only Frank Bello. It features solid LTD build, Frank Bello signature specs, and heavy bass sound. This signature instrument is great for fans of Frank and Anthrax, or anyone who wants a killer metal bass at an attainable price.

Solid LTD Build
This bass is built to withstand some hardcore playing. Made with a mahogany body and double cutaway, off-set design, this bass just screams cool. It's got a 34" scale length bolt-on maple neck cut into "U" shape for smooth playability. The FBJ-400 sports a macassar ebony fingerboard with 21 XJ frets.

Frank Bello Signature Specs
Made to the specs that Frank wanted so he could maintain the utmost playability, this bass is built to be played hard and last, night after night, gig after gig. It has an LTD DB-4 bridge and LTD vintage tuners, collectively keeping the bass accurately in tune with solid intonation. The dot inlays along the fretboard are matched by dot side markers which glow in the dark, so you can always find your positioning, even on a dark stage.

Heavy Bass Sound
Frank Bello made sure this bass has all the low-end rumble you need to emulate the killer tones you hear on Anthrax tracks. There's an EMG P-HZ at the neck and an EMG LJ-HZ at the bridge. These pickups have a great, high powered bass sound, which will give you the perfect combination of blending in to the mix and being heard. And with volume, balance, and tone controls, you can tweak your sound to perfection.

Another Frank Bello Signature? Don't mind if I do.


I bought my first Frank Bello signature bass about 6 years ago or so. It was the Among the Living signature. I really liked it and it's been my primary bass ever since. I saw the opportunity to get another one recently and jumped. I like this one even better. It sounds straight up mean. It plays really well and sounds great. I play stoner rock/metal. I like to play in C or E standard. Very excited to record the next Xero Hour record with this beauty. The only "negative" I've come across is the weight. It is definitely the heaviest bass I've ever played. More than my other LTDs and Even more than my Ibanez 5 string. I put negative in quotations because A. That's personal preference. And B. It's heavy so you know it's built to last.

Amazing Bass


Absolutely love this bass. The EMG pickups have great attack for fast metal that I play but still allow diverse dynamics and play styles. I also love the style, it feels like a Fender but plays more like a modern bass, so it has the best of both worlds. Only downside is the weight, to me it seems heavier than most other ESPs or Ibanez basses I have played.
