    I can bet you'll never find a better Master build shop bass that this ... it's BRAND NEW -- MINT! Never played outside my home -- ESP master build (DISCLAIMER - I contacted the California office of ESP and they verified these to be custom shop; however, I was informed by another bass talk person they are not - so we'll go with him) - made in Japan by their master builders -- amber quilted maple top jazz bass; ESP E-11 J-4 Retails well over $2500. Please don't confuse with the lower end Asian created basses-- this is true ESP quality -- lots of upgrades only found on the custom shop products. eBay has them with a cheap amp for $1500. Ash body; seymour duncan pickups; 9 volt seymour duncan preamp with an ingenious way of changing the battery (flip over); gotoh bridge and tuners. If you ever wanted a custom shop bass, these are some of the best Japan craftsmen can do. ESP is also a custom builder for other companies such as Lakland Shore Line basses on the order of their own USA quality. This bass has all upgrades mentioned above; Gotoh, Seymour Duncan; etc. Has volume, blend, bass, treble controls. Since it's ash body it's a bit heavier but the lightest of the one's I've bought. It's a 2013 model but has been at the ESP California warehouse for these past few years and they have decided to sell them to move on to other basses. Again, you won't find this quality for the price with all the upgrades. Comes with $159 ESP Hardshell case. Will deliver in the KC area.

    Is this a local sale only?
     
  4. That really is an awesome price on fantastic bass. I have an older ESP Bottom Line and I'll never give it up. They really know how to make a great base. I especially love their necks.....even on their lower quality LTD line. GLWTS!!!

    E-II isn't made in the Custom Shop, E-II replaced their Standard line.

    I have an LTD with the same neck shape and dimensions and it is by far my favorite neck on a 4 string. Super easy to play.
