what bass was this?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by societysfinest, Apr 8, 2003.

  1. I recently saw a band called Atreyu play the HOB chicago, and the bassist had a really cool looking bass. But i could not figure out what it was. It was a ESP(LTD) that was a LP shape with the semi-hollowbody type hole closest to him. I looked on the ESP site but i could not find this. I wondered if anyone knew of this bass, or if they have seen one like this custom? thanks
  2. Yeah, there was a review of it in Bass Player Magazine a couple issues ago.
  3. thanks but can someone tell me which model this is? Has anyone heard if this is good or not? i just loved how it looked , and would like to try one out even if its not in my price range.

    Assuming it was in fact the one that was reviewed in Bass Player, it is a ESP EC-304 FM. It lists at $799.
  5. thanks again for the reply..but this bass was a semi-hollowbody. That model is a solidbody. I cant find it on any sites

    The bass reviewed in Bass Player (Sept. 2002) was a semi-hollowbody, and is listed in the review as an EC-304 FM. It seems like ESP has simply changed their specs.

    Yeah, like I said, the ESP EC-304 FM as reviewed in Bass Player is hollow, and it is probably what bass you are looking for. If you want to see for your self, find a back issue of the September 2002 issue of Bass Player, the one where John Entwistle is on the cover playing a "Fender Bird" in a black and white picture.
  8. alright thanks alot everyone

    I love CKY, as you can probably tell by my name.
    (yeah i know it's a little off topic)
  13. CKY had a good set. The guitarist was drinking jack daniels and finished about a half bottle or so throughout the set. He also smashed his guitar into about 6 peices and threw theminto the crowd. I really went to the show for Atreyu(my favorite recent day band.)
