ESP LTD B-204SM Bass Guitar – See Thru Black Satin

4-string Electric Bass with Spalted Maple Top, Ash Body, 5-piece Maple/Jatoba Neck, Roasted Jatoba Fingerboard, and 2 SB-4 Humbucking Pickups – See Thru Black Satin

Intermediate Bass with Pro Looks and Features

Bassists who are looking to step into the pro range without a big price tag should look no further than the ESP LTD B-204SM. This bass has a stunning satin-finished spalted maple top on an ergonomic ash body for a warm and cutting tone, good stage looks, and all-night comfort. A strong bolt-on five-piece maple/jatoba neck with a Thin U profile and roasted jatoba fingerboard give the LTD B-204SM a snappy response and accurate reproduction of runs. Bassists were quick to note the LTD B-204SM’s low-noise ESP humbucking pickups with active EQ, stable string-through bridge, and moody black nickel hardware.

ESP LTD B-204SM 4-string Electric Bass at a Glance:

  • Distinctive tonewoods for focused lows and a cutting edge
  • SB-4 humbucking pickups with 3-band active EQ for modern color

Distinctive tonewoods for focused lows and a cutting edge

The LTD B-204SM has a look and sound that’s unique among basses in this price range. The ash body and bolt-on maple/jatoba neck give this bass a decidedly American response: bright and punchy mids, a fast attack, and a focused bass response. The spalted maple top’s satin finish gives this instrument an eye-catching look to suit modern styles of music.

SB-4 humbucking pickups with 3-band active EQ for modern color

ESP electronics have a sound that delivers for modern rock, metal, and fusion, and the LTD-204SM stays true to this reputation. Onboard SB-4 neck and bridge humbuckers give the LTD B-204SM moderate output and low noise for clean stage amplification and accurate studio sound reproduction. A powerful 3-band active EQ section provides lots of tone-shaping options to help your groove find its place in a mix.
