ESP LTD B1005MS Multi-Scale 5-String Bass Ziricote Top Natural Satin Demo
The first thing you’ll notice about the B-1004 Multi-Scale and 5-string B-1005 Multi-Scale will likely be its unusual arrangement of frets. A multi-scale fret design optimizes string tension so that the lower strings have a longer scale compared to the higher strings, resulting in consistently excellent tone and performance at all points across the fingerboard. Bass players often report that a multi-scale design is also ergonomically preferential to standard fret designs, and that they feel natural to play, with very little learning curve required. Designed for professional players, the B-1004 Multi-Scale and B-1005 Multi-Scale provide a swamp ash body with a top made of solid ziricote, an environmentally friendly and terrific-looking tonewood. These basses also employ a five-piece wenge/purple heart neck with pau ferro fingerboard, constructed at 36.25" to 34" scale for the B-1004 Multi-Scale and 37” to 34” for the B-1005 Multi-Scale. Its high-end components include a black bone nut, Gotoh tuners, and Hipshot Solo bridge, as well as a set of acclaimed Nordstrand Big Splits hum-cancelling pickups, along with an ABQ-3MS 3-band EQ. This setup gives you incredible flexibility in tone, with an active/passive mini-switch, a mid-frequency selection mini-switch (800Hz or 400Hz), individual bass, treble, and mid EQ controls, and master volume and balance controls. Available in Natural Satin finish.
