    Hello everyone, I am leaving for marine corp boot camp in 2 months, and before that I would like to spend my time playing a new bass.

    I am looking for a ESP J-5 bass ( Please not LTD )

    Any color is fine. Pickups don't matter to me.

    If anyone is willing to sell me theirs or know of a store/pawn shop that has one, please post here. Or private message me.

    I thank you for your time.
  2. That's not a real common bass, as far as availability, and (my guess), the number of them produced. They make really nice guitars, and basses. And once a player makes a purchase, they tend to keep 'em. I never understood why the "real" ESP brand of basses (or the guitars, for that matter) never really took off. Their stuff from the mid-80's to the early 90's was/is awesome. To bad they've been lumped in with the Jackson's and B.C.Rich's as a hard-rock/hair metal-type of instrument. The old Horizon basses were awesome.
