5-string Built for the Darker Side of Rock

With the ESP LTD F-155DX 5-string electric bass in your hands, you're primed for aggressive playing and a massive low-end rumble. With its 35"-scale thin neck contour, active electronics, and wicked visuals, this bass is custom-designed for metal. The F-155DX's ESP-designed SB-5 pickups give you everything from punchy, growling lows to clear and cutting highs. And the active EQ lets you sculpt your sound to perfection. If intense looks, fast playability, and bold tone are on your list, Sweetwater's got your bass: ESP's LTD F-155DX.

Show-stealing visuals

If you're into extreme body styles, you'll dig ESP's F Series basses. Arguably one of the wickedest shapes ever to grace a stringed instrument, F Series instruments look like they could easily double as weapons if things get rough after a gig. And given ESP's typically superb build quality, your F Series axe will still play and sound great after hours of onstage punishment. One thing's for sure, when you take the stage with your ESP F-155DX, all eyes will be on you.

Powerful active electronics

When you're responsible for supplying the stage-rumbling power for metal and hard rock, you need a bass that delivers with plenty of power to spare. The ESP LTD F-155DX 5-string electric bass guitar utilizes a dominant complement of ESP-designed SB-5 humbucking pickups and an active preamp with a 3-band EQ for wide-ranging tonal aggression. Whether you need huge lows or a cutting top end, the ESP LTD F-155DX will deliver.

ESP basses: built to rock hard

ESP started as a manufacturer of after-market guitar parts in Japan in the late 1970s. By the mid-'80s, ESP was making custom guitars and basses for some of the biggest names in rock. An exacting eye toward playability and craftsmanship has made ESP Guitars one of the most visible and prevalent guitar brands in rock and metal. Their commitment to quality is second to none, and their impressive roster of endorsers proves it.

An Excellent Bass

Overall I would say this is an excellent bass! I mostly play for a church and in my bedroom. I would recommend using Ernie Ball strings on it. The default strings were a little bright for my liking. This bass has a pleasant punchy tone. When I bought this bass, I was looking for something at the intermediate level with a body shape and color that differed from the boring standard bass guitar shapes. On the color of the bass, under incandescent bulbs, it appears exactly like the pictures. Under fluorescent bulbs, it looks more violet. The guitar holds tune well and all the knobs work as great.
