Once again I've become drawn to another bass, the ESP LTD B-50. I've finally decided to sell off my 5 string to a mate so that I'll be able to add an extra $100 to my budget (currently $400AUD), which was originally intended to pick up an SX bass to mod into something a bit better. I was just wondering if this bass is worth the money? I have read that the pickups are a little muddy, which is fine (it's one of the first things I intend to change), but I am wondering in general if this is a bass that would be a good start for modding? EDIT: The reason I'm asking is because I've heard that ESP, even with their LTD range, make very good quality stuff, but I wasn't sure if a $400 price tag on an LTD bass would be worth the buy (not looking to sell it off in the future though, so resale value is not an issue for this).
