    The price includes a case, but i dont know why this bass has 24 frets, he never uses anything over 8th fret :D
  9. You can get the LTD version from MF for like $700.

    Hey, those pentagram inlays don't grow on trees, ya know!
  12. Tom Araya may be a god, but that is a stupid bass.

    Plus he plays BC Rich's anyways on stage.
  13. not anymore. that bass is what he plays now.
  14. Somewhere in this wide wide world, there is a young teen, he each day he logs on to ESP's site, masterfully navigates its menus and goes directly to that bass. He stares lovingly at the pictures, though he has already seen and memorized them a thousand times. He glances at the specs longingly more out of habit than anything else.

    "Neck-thru" If God had a bass, it would be Neck-thru.
    "Maple/Ebony neck/fingerboard" Two woods are always superior to one.
    "Pentagram inlays" And SLAYER! SLAYER On the 12th fret

    And it is all black, representing the dreariness of this existence and the desire to be nothing.

    "Someday," He murmurs under his breath. "Someday, it shall be mine. Oh Yes, it shall be mine."
  15. I don't think I'd give $900 for it.

    Ooooh - it's so... pointy!
  19. Electronics seem okay.

    And that's it, I'm having a very nice don't wanna ruin it by saying something about the overall blandness of construction / woods. Or that the body shape is very silly.
