The ESP LTD D-5 five-string electric bass provides you a wide span of tonal reach with its 24 XJ frets and comfortable five-piece maple/mahogany neck. A slick rosewood fingerboard invites your fingers for hours of melodious exploration, and a set of SB-5 neck and bridge humbuckers capture your playing and craft it into a forceful signal ready to shake the stage. A merbau body brings in a well-articulated and full-bodied sound, and master volume, bass, middle, treble, and balance controls help you shape your signal to your personal liking. With its neck-thru construction and gorgeous finish, the ESP LTD D5 looks and plays like a bass several times the price -- it's no wonder this instrument is a favorite among bassists of all levels!
You won't find merbau wood in a lot of guitars or basses, so your ESP LTD D-5 will stand out sonically from the rest of the crowd. Merbau is a dense and durable wood, and it brings a pleasant warmth and well-balanced tonal color to your performance. A deep double cutaway gives this five-stringed baddie a sleek look as well as easy access to those higher octave notes when you want to get a little more melodic.
Fitting five strings onto a single neck necessitates an appropriate design to make extra room without fattening up the width to the point of discomfort. The five-piece maple/mahogany neck on your ESP LTD D-5 rests snugly in your hand, making every fret easily accessible. Maple adds a rounded brightness to the game, and mahogany offers a healthy heap of sustain and body. Combining these two woods yields a solid and well-balanced output ready to fill the room. And the D5's neck-through-body construction means this bass is a sustain machine.
Your SB-5 neck and bridge humbucker pickups are the perfect duo to capture the unique resonance of this baby's merbau body. You get all of the depth, middle, and high end of each note, without any low or mid-frequency mud. You also won't have to worry about any hums or buzzes getting in the way of your output. Now matter how low you go, each note will achieve confident articulation and find its way through the mix and into the room. Even if you're a fast and aggressive player -- no matter the style -- these two pickups will always have your back.
Your ESP LTD D-5 boasts attractive black nickel hardware to add a nice helping of classy flair. A sturdy and secure BB-605 bridge utilizes a string-through=body configuration to bring in a more seamless transfer of sound from your fingers to your bass's body. It also adds a little more sustain to each note for those times when you want your licks to linger in suspense between changes.
You'll get all of the control you need out of your bass by utilizing its active three-band EQ control system. Having solid control of your lows, mids, and treble frequencies means you'll be able to get just the right kind of sound for the right occasion. The balance control allows you to mix in the right combination of each pickup, essentially eliminating the need for a pickup selector switch.
