    i play a ESP LTD Viper 254 bass in A-D-G-C, but the A doesn't
    sound good at all on it.
    Will the ESP LTD B2005 (4-string + 35" mensur + EMG 35DC ative pickups)
    or the Ibanez SR505 (5-string + bartolini pickups) work better in A tuning?

    What a coincidence I just ordered a ESP 2005.

    Any thoughts/comments on this one? I know it's goin to be good for metal and that's why I ordered it. :)

    ESP's 35" scale + active EMGs + tuning down = HUGE LOW END!!!

    You won't be disappointed with the B-2005.

    when tune to A is it better do play a 4-string with 35" scale,
    a 5-string or do you think a deep A will sound on a 4-string with 34" scale as good as on the others?

    go for LTD 2005 i saw it in shop it is bad ass.
    Its better wood than Ibanez and 35 scale and EMG s.
    It is ultimate metal axe when u see it-dragon on 12 fret and skull on head.I allmost buy it instead of cort RB4 but it was to expensive for me.
