The ESP LTD Standard B50 Electric Bass Guitar is built with an agathis body, ESP's smooth, thin maple neck and a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard. You don't very often find a deal like this on a bass of this quality. For a wide variety of tonal capabilities, the B50 has the excellent P/J pickup configuration. The J-style bridge pickup gives you bright highs and tight lows while the spilt P-style neck pickup thumps out boomy low end. The combination of the two gives you the best of both worlds. Awesome versatility and solid ESP feel at an entry price.
