Iconic offset body shape is comfortable, seated or standing

Sweetwater knows that playing comfort is important to you, and when it's time to perform, you need a bass that won't slow you down. The ESP E-II J5 QM features a lightweight chambered ash offset body. The offset-waist "J-style" body style has been a mainstay on the music scene since the early 1960s, and there's a reason for its perennial popularity - it's comfortable whether you're seated or standing; plucking, picking, or slapping. Factor in this instrument's fast 34"-scale maple neck with rosewood fretboard and jumbo frets, and you're in for serious bass bliss.

Classic bass tone, courtesy of Seymour Duncan

The ESP E-II J5 QM is loaded with a pair of Seymour Duncan SJ5N and SJ5B pickups that put an arsenal of classic fat, growling tone on tap. This is a calibrated neck and bridge set with a slightly narrower neck pickup. The neck pickup is also reverse-wound/reverse-polarity for hum canceling when you're rockin' with both pickups dimed. ESP even gives you active 2-band EQ, so you can tweak to your tone to perfection.

E-II series - ESP quality at LTD prices

These premium guitars are made in the same factory as ESP guitars by the same luthiers. Based on the most popular ESP models, ESP E-II guitars have the features, playability, and vibe that you want at a great price.
