    Hey everyone, i just joined this site. Im looking formward to getting advice in the future from these forumns.

    ANyhow, i jsut bought a bass off of eBay. I was looking for an ESP F-series bass for a while. i read good things about them and i love the way they look. The tradional shape but a lot more jagged and exciting. anyway, i was looking for a rather inexpensive one to pop up on eBay.
    Ever hear of the band "Shadow's Fall"? I bought the bass they used on their first cd and tour with all of their signatures on it. An ESP F-204. $200!!! i couldn't beleave my luck. I got my bass and made a few adjustments with the strings and it sounds great! THe bass is in almost perfect condition. a few scratches here and there, but nothign that i wouldn't have put on it in a few months anyhow.

    anyhow, im really happy with it and i was just wondering if anyone else had any experience with the f-204.

    Shadows Fall just happens to be my favorite band! :)
    So you better have some pictures!!
    And, by first album do you mean Somber Eyes to the Sky or Of One Blood?....just asking, because obviously there was a slight lineup change.

    acually, im not sure wich album they used it on. The person jsut tol dme what i told you. I did find a music video with them playing it though.

    does LTD make ESP or is it the other way around. i didn't mean to mislead anyone here. I think its like a Gibson-Epiphone thing right?

    nice looking bass. I'm pretty sure its ESP and LTD is just like a model sort of thing. Kind of like Ibanez SR basses and stuff, but i'm not exactly sure. I'm not an expert on ESP at all.
