New ESP/LTD MIJ Basses
Just saw these on the ESP site. Scroll to the bottom. They look really nice, curious on pricing.
Esp has some nice original body shapes for bass., The B and F series as my faves. I myself have no interest at all in esp ltd fender clones shape stuff like the elite is shown as..
I was at the NAMM show last week and the Rep in the booth told me these LTD Elites are rebadged Edwards. Made in Japan. They looked good, especially the guitars...
I like the Pancho Tomaselli/J series, slightly sharper take on the offset J body. Looks good.
Are J basses really that much more popular than Ps? All I wanted was a P and they wouldn't give it to me...
J basses are more popular than P basses in the sense that they sell way more pieces
Other than that, Esp/Ltd do sell P style basses
They're configured P/J, down to passive electronics, but they're P basses anyway
They're called Vintage
They tend to be factory relic'd, but they're no expensive (made in China, if Ltds) and well crafted
Or you can go with something more
I got an Ltd Frank Bello
It's made in Korea and heavy as heck: full alder body + maple neck (repainted black just like body, to let it look a neckthru) ebony fingerboard with abalone bindin' an' block (so you can't see where you're at in the dark of stagesets) and P/J EMGx active pickups.
Oh yeah! No more relic on the vintage stuff. They have some really nice looking LTD offerings. But, alas, no plain old P-Bass. But they do offer a few PJ options. The Frank Bello is pretty badass, in my opinion.
