A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon an ESP LTD B-208 8-string bass at one of my local music stores. I picked it up and give it a quick try, and I must say that I was quite impressed. I've been the proud owner of a Dean Rhapsody 8-string now for almost two-and-a-half years and I still love it. But, this ESP just seemed to come out of the blue. I was very surprised to see this thing. Upon researching it a bit, I see that it is no longer being manufactured (just like the Rhap). It has many of the same features as the Dean as well: made in Korea; mahogany body; 5-piece bolt-on neck; EMG's with 3-band EQ. But, despite these similarities, the feel of the ESP is quite different. And, I must say that I rather like it quite a bit. Does anyone out there have any experience with one of these ESP LTD's? I'd be curious to hear a review. Thanks.
