Dual humbuckers and powerful active EQ for sonic versatility

The ESP LTD B-414 comes equipped with two EMG humbucking pickups, which boast a wide response and low-noise performance. The real magic is in the B-414's active 3-band EQ, which gives you control over bass, mids, and treble frequencies to fine-tune your sound. And the balance control lets you blend between pickups, instead of just selecting one or the other. So even though the B-414 is primed for fast, aggressive playing, you can dial in a wide range of tones to suit virtually any music style.

Neck-through-body construction makes this bass sound huge

You may notice that the five-piece maple/rosewood neck runs through the whole length of the B-414's spalted maple-topped ash body. This design enhances vibration transfer from the neck and fretboard throughout the body, leading to richer tones and a faster, more articulate response. You also get incredible sustain, making the sound of the B-414 a force to be reckoned with.
