    I have my eye on a vintage bass, so I'm trying to sell everything I can to come up with the money. Up for sale here is my ESP Custom Shop B-1. This is NOT an LTD. They aren't even in the same league. I'm not sure if this bass is MIA or CIJ. I've had conflicting reports on where their custom shop was located at the time this bass was made. It has a Seymour Duncan Basslines Stingray pickup with a Basslines active preamp. The preamp is three band with treble, bass, and mid controls. It sounds exactly like a Stingray. This bass has the easiest to play neck I have ever played. It's a little under 1 1/2" at the nut and the fretwork is perfect. I mean perfect. This is definitely the best fretjob I've seen on a bass. I really like everything about this bass, but the neck is just fantastic. There are some chips in the paint, including one on the inside of the lower horn that goes into the wood a little bit. I think the gain might need to be turned down on the preamp a touch. There is a tiny bit of volume left when the volume knob is turned down all the way.


    Price: $350 plus shipping. This is a chance to get areal ESP for much less than a new LTD. I take paypal and money order. Paypal please add 3%.

    oooh... cool... is it a jazz width neck (1.5" at the nut) or? :meh:

    edit: sorry, i actually tried reading the whole post and see that you say it is a tad under 1.5" at the nut... too narrow for me... good luck with the sale- i've seen dug pinnick using one of these live, and am tempted to pick it up just because of that (although his was a lefty, obviously)...

    Is this bass a 34" scale length? Does it seem like a long reach to the 1st position when on a strap because of the short horns?

    This bass does indeed have a 34" scale. The bass is comfortable to play in the first position, since it has a 21 fret neck. I've never felt like I was reaching for the first fret.
