    My new ESP B-206SM arrived today. The finish and quality seems very good. Right now the only complains are a very slight buzz on one string and I really dont care for the SIT strings. (They seem rough).

    Looks pretty cool
  3. sweet! Especially since I like bolt on neck over neck thrus.
    You may want to spend a little $$ and take it to a good tech and have it set up with the gauge and brand of strings you plan on using. The buzz maybe a little truss rod adjustment.
    When ever I get a new bass I take it to the tech with a new pack of strings and have a full setup done, intonation, action, truss rod adjustment and fret level/dressing. usually around $75 and well worth it. I like low action too!
  4. SWEET!
    I hope you'll enjoy it

    Thanks I have a lot to learn on a 6 string. Still figuring out what strings to put on. I would like to put on DR Fat Beams. I think they maybe long enough. I measured the ball to the tuner on the longest string and it is 42 3/4 inches long. I like smooth playing strings.
  6. Steve2 are you sure youe measured ok? Because according to ESP website that a 35" scale bass. I don't know DR strings s o I can't give you info on those.
    Anyway congrats!

    I am pretty sure. That is from the back of the bridge to the farthest tuner peg. I can double check. It is 35" scale

    Looks nice

    I'm not a one for ESP basses but the finish looks cool
  9. Hey steve MAYBE my latest post wasn't well structured, What I meant was that your bass is a 35" scale that's the measure from bridge to nut (Not strings lenght!). Now as far as I know you would need long scale bass guitar strings. I hope someone who really knows this things will show up. Or just go to the strings forum and ask.
