Product Description

The ESP D-5 Neck thru bass guitar is loaded with pro appointments making it an incredible value.
The ESP D-5 has a full 34-inch scale for a deep, round sound difficult to find in instruments of this price. Its ultra thin u-shape 5-piece Mahogany and Maple neck with a Rosewood fingerboard, built into a Merbau body, makes for a very solid feel. The bridge is the ESP BB-605 with String-Thru-Body. Electronics include a set of ESP SB-5 pickups; and Volume and Balance controls, plus ESP's ABQ3 3-Band Active EQ. There's a lot of tone and fantastic ESP playability built into this bass.

Overall Rating
Great bass for the money!
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Great product. I have been playing for about four years so this info may be helpful for those who are beginners.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
The bass I purchased was supposed to be "scratch and dent." I have no idea what was wrong with it. I have looked and looked for any dings, scratches, or flaws...just don't see it.
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
While the bass is a little on the heavy side it has a great feel to it. The sleek neck makes for quick and easy play...makes my older, but lighter ESP, feel clunky. This bass should be ideal for any style of play. I play mostly rock, reggae, ska, and punk.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
With the controls I have been able to dial in any tone I've been looking for.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Has a great natural look. Very pleased. Again this bass was discounted because of imperfections...neither my wife, kids, nor myself can find them.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
This was much more than I expected for the price.
How was the action out of the box?
Out of the box the action was a little high and the truss rod needed a 1/4 turn to be loosened to eliminate some fret noise on the A string. The tonality needed some adjusting as well. I don't mind doing any of this...for me it's part of learning. If you're not comfortable making those adjustments any music store will do a set up for you....adjustments should be expected.
