    I haven't but I also didn't know LTD makes such a bass. I recently bought 2 ESP guitars so I've going thru their websites often but I've never seen that one. Was it discontinued? Cool looking bass tho.

    Haven't played one, but they seem like a good bass. Fairly good pickups and pream - according to the specs anyway. I'd like to try one.

    i really dislike the body shape and the way the pickups look in the body. the body's too rounded for me. and the first control knob is too close to the strings.

    The only thing I've seen is a Bass Player magazine review of the four string model a little bit ago (I think it was the same model). The overall review was good (if that means anything to you) but it did mention that the bass was quite heavy. Also I've seen ads with Tom Barney endorsing these basses. It does look very nice though.
