    Tone Monster

    I recently made the drive to the store in Fort Wayne, and it was definitely worth the time and gas. The place is amazing — a virtual music mall with it's own food court — and the people there bend over backward to help you. That said, I was there in Fort Wayne looking for a new primary bass. I've been playing an old school Fender Precision for the past 10 years or so, but in my current band situation, I was needing something with active electronics and a mid-range price tag. I spent most of the day trying out over a dozen basses, but at the end of the day, it came down to a hard choice between the D-4 and an Lakland Skyline. The Skyline was a great bass and worth the money, but ultimately it was the D-4's distinct, deep, rich, woody, growling tone that won me over. I've never played a bass that was as rock solid down low as the D-4, and it still sings and rings nicely up high. The action was just right (low and fast) out of the box — yes, the customer rep. pulled it out of the original packaging for me, as it was not among those on display — and I haven't found a single buzzy spot on the neck. This bass plays and sounds great whether you're picking, plucking, thumping, slapping, or popping. On top of all that, it's downright gorgeous. I highly recommend it.

    Awesome Instrument

    I've had her for three years now I think and couldn't be more happy. I've played on my friends' Spector and $2k Music Man and still prefer the LTD. The only real difference between this and higher end models is electronics. I'm not a super fan of how the neck pickup sounds, but I play metal, and you can easily swap out the pickups for EMGs or whatever and triple the price on it.

    Attention All Bass Players !!!

    I just got my Esp Ltd D-4 Bass and let me tell all you bass players that do not own one yet something. I have owned and still play Basses well over $1,000 each and thought that I would never play nor own any model less expensive than the ones I have played for the past 20 years. ( UNTIL NOW ) This bass is made out of one of the most EXOTIC popular hardwoods known in the industry. Its body is made of Merbau and it is from South East Asia ( AKA ) Kwila. Very high value in this wood and extremely durable. This bass is worth much more than the price that you can get it for @ Sweetwater, And I also got the ESP LTD Hardshell case, and that is as killer as the bass. I highly recommend this bass to all. And highly recommend & thank Mr. Norb Berninger for his outstanding customer service. I rate this bass right up there with my two other basses that are valued at well over $1,000 each. My 30+ years in this business would qualify these statements. As I have played almost every make and model out there over the years. And I will tell you all. I will not part with this ESP LTD D-4 Merbau Exotic wood bass. Try it you will LOVE it. Not only for it's price, But also for its sturdyness, punch, tone, and overall feel of a QUALITY made instrument. You will not go wrong. BUY ONE TODAY.. Thank you Sweetwater & Mr. Berninger for this awesome pc of gear. Sincerely, Respectfully, Keith David

    Great bass!!!!!

    After trying several other inexpensive and expensive basses I decided this is the one. First off the finish quality was equal to other brands 900 dollar bass. The pickups are very nice , I normally replace all my pickups in new guitars not this one. Active eq is a must as I play everything from metal to pop and back. The action is excellent although a little buzzy, partly because of my string of choice. Lastly the tuners are rock solid and the 5 piece next at this price point plays very very well. If you need a cheap bass forget the squires and other parade of junk. But this and you'll love it.
