Everything You Want from a 6-string Bass!

This RB series bass, the RB-1006BM, under ESP's LTD moniker is a real beast of a 6-string that's sure to make any creative bass player very happy. Designed by Tower of Power bass legend, Rocco Prestia, the LTD RB-1006BM features nothing but the finest available tonewoods and appointments, rendering the bass players at Sweetwater speechless when we saw how affordable it is. We're talking about things like Aguilar pickups and electronics, a premium Gotoh bridge, and real Grover tuners, not to mention a swamp ash body topped with jaw-dropping burled maple. It doesn't get much better than this!

ESP LTD RB-1006BM 6-string Electric Bass at a Glance:
  • Choice tonewoods provide exceptional sound and sustain
  • Aguilar pickups and electronics deliver outstanding tone
  • Built to spec for Tower of Power bassist Rocco Prestia
Choice tonewoods provide exceptional sound and sustain

Tonewoods are always important, but when you're dealing with an instrument with the kind of range and expression as the LTD RB-1006BM 6-string bass, they become even more critical. ESP chose lightweight swamp ash for the RB-1006BM's body because of its warm and well-balanced sound and then capped it with burled maple both to give it a stunning appearance and to add just a touch of extra high-end harmonics to your tone. At the same time, a 5-piece maple and walnut neck topped with a maple fingerboard offers up the stability and sustain in spades.

Aguilar pickups and electronics deliver outstanding tone

Few bass pickups and EQs are as universally respected as Aguilar's, which made them a natural choice for the LTD RB-1006BM. At the same time, ESP stuck to the traditional P/J configuration, opting for a set of Aguilar's passive models. They paired those up with a stunning Aguilar OBP-2 active 2-band EQ, which makes it super easy to get the exact tonal balance you're looking for. And since the RB-1006BM features a balance knob and master volume (rather than two volume controls), dialing in your tone on the fly is a piece of cake.

Built to spec for Tower of Power bassist Rocco Prestia

When ESP decided to launch their new RB bass line, they brought in one of the most respected bass players of all time, Rocco Prestia, to help sort out the details. With 40+ years under his belt laying down the groove with Tower of Power, Rocco Prestia knows the dynamics and range of expression you can get out of a bass better than just about anyone out there. It's thanks to his influence that this LTD RB-1006BM features stunning tonewoods, top notch details such as a Gotoh bridge and Grover Tuners, and Aguilar electronics. Pick up an LTD RB-1006BM, and you're playing a bass built for a pro.
