    500

    Selling a heavily upgraded ESP LTD Vintage 214 bass guitar. This is a P/J guitar with VVT knobs . It's an awesome black/maple combo. The neck is a nice P sized style, very smooth. Plays great. Setup with 45-105 DR Dragon Skin strings.

    I upgraded the following things:

    1) Replaced the bridge with a Babicz chrome full contact bridge ($140)
    2) Replaced all electronics with EMG Geezer Butler P/J set ($150)
    3) Installed Dunlop straplock buttons. I'll include a strap w/ the straplocks on as well. ($15 + $10 strap)
    4) The original pickguard was white but I painted it black. Kind of looks like a cool textured pickguard. Would be very easy to replace or strip the paint off if you wanted to, I just liked the black/black combo and did this upgrade on a budget.

    I did all this work to make this bass into a backup bass for touring. I never played it on the road so it's still in great condition.

    The price is higher than normal for an ESP LTD bass because of the upgrades. Let me know if you have a budget in mind and we can look at downgrading it to closer to stock as I have all the original parts as well.

    I'll include a nice gig bag as well to protect during shipping.

    Please let me know if you have any questions - this is a fanastic sounding/playing guitar for the price. Thanks!

    Only trade I would consider is for a Peavey T-40

    $500 shipped in conUS.
