    Don't see much info on these but the reviews I have red have ALL been good. Quite a few good players are using them to.

    So what's the general concesus, anyone play 'em, try 'em out, hear them?

    I'm looking at getting an ESP LTD 254
    4 string (can be tuned BEAD)
    35" scale
    string thru
    5 piece neck thru (maple/walnut)
    EMG HZ picks
    Rosewood fingerboard
    Agathis body

    It's a good price, I think probably worth it but the nearest dealer is 3 1/2 hours away.

    I have B-50 and a C-304. I love them both. My next bass will be a B-404. IMO, ESP LTD are the best value anywhere. Good luck.

    After I get a job I'm planning on spending my cash on a B405. A friend plays/owns a 404, sounds AMAZING in his band. However i can't see myself not having a B string anytime soon. d'oh.

    Right on, I think the first thing i want to do is ditch the G and add a B. Don't think I want a fiver though.

    I don't really want the g anyway, and I've tried a few 5's. i originally thought I'd want one but I think I'll get better on a 4 first, when I have that really good I might look at a five.

    I think it'll be a good compliment to my hollow Yamaha. Yamaha is really clean, good highs.
    The ESP is supposed to be a good low ender (low sound not price-although it's not too expensive)

    I have a B-254, it is an amazing player, sounds good, and feels good, wouldn't trade it for anything high end.

    I sling huge strings on it and drop it to CGCF, and it thumps hard.

    The B 206 and B405 look realyl cool, as well as the natural Ash Surveyors but I don't know what'S the diff between the two...other than the bridge and tuners...

    Yeah, I like the looks of most of their stuff, deffinately a designer who is good with asthetics.

    I love the F series (254) like I'm lookin at. Real mean looking in a standard shape, nothin weird, just mean.
