    ESP LTD Elite (E-II) J-5 Bass

    -Chambered Ash body with Quilt Maple top & matching headstock
    -Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard
    -Trans black finish
    -Chrome hardware
    -Seymour Duncan J single coils in 70's position
    -Update: Now with an Aguilar OBP3. Volume, Blend, P/P Mid & stacked Bass/Treble. (Original ESP 2-band active 9-volt preamp included)
    -35" scale

    This is a high end model; LTD Elite is now called E-II, which was ESP Standard and made in the same factory in Japan as ESP Custom. These are discontinued but sold for $1800 new. It feels like a high quality custom instrument - everything is top notch.

    Good condition with some scratches on the clear coat but nothing too deep.

    $725.00 shipped in ConUS. PayPal ok.

    This is a great deal on a really good bass. I have this exact bass and would describe it as easily a step above an American Fender. Great quality fretwork, nice B string. Love the battery box too!

    I’ve never measured it but I believe it’s 18 mm.

  11. I have the newer E-II version of this bass and it is an amazing instrument. At used prices, it can't be beat. GLWTS!

    Now with upgraded Aguilar OBP3 preamp!

    This bass is now a few levels better and I really like it but my “regular” car maintenance this weekend is costing more than expected and I could use the money.

    Putting this one back up. I use this for my alt rock band and that really does not need a 5-string since we play in drop-D. I prefer to sell but would consider certain 4 strings as trade.

    Fender Blacktop Precision
    Fender Modern Player Jazz
    Fender FSR Jazz (the natural ash with rosewood board model)
    Fender Deluxe J or P in that seafoam or surf pearl finish
    Fender Jaguar (the red CIJ would be a dream)
    ESP E-II AP4
    ESP LTD AP4 (the new blue one)
    Schecter Model T (Session would be awesome)
    Schecter Diamond P
    G&L (US model)

    Somewhere along these lines.

    A couple of different folks asked me to confirm the scale length since there may not be a definitive source online, so I took pics.
