    I've played a few LTD's by ESP & I thought, all in all, they were really nice basses. I don't remember the models, though. :(

    In the new 10/01 Bass Player Magizine, there is a review of the ESP C-305. Looks really nice & got <img src="http://www.talkbass.com/forum/images/icons/icon14.gif">'s all the way.
     
  3. i tried one a few days ago and enjoyed it so much,i will probably buy one today,they are really good for the price,a b204 sells at mars music for about 350 to 450

    I don't mean to get off topic, but why did you choose Candiria as your name? Anything to do w/the band?

  5. I say go for the B304, neck through. Or the F204, cool body shape.

    :D:D
     
  6. Ive got a ESP ltd b205. Ive had it for about 2 months now, and really have enjoyed it. Very nice for the money, i paid about 750 cnd for it. Make sure you get a 2001 model as from what i understand from the esp site, the earlier ones do not have the string through bridge and preamp. I tried mine in the music store, and then went back 3 days later and bought it.
    good luck:D :eek:

    I have a B-305 from about 2000. It does have the active preamp, but it has 2 volume knobs instead of a blend and volume, which I would have preferred.

    I think it's a pretty decent bass overall.
