Sleek and balanced Surveyor body delivers stable performance and comfort

If you're sick of feeling like you've got to hold up your bass by the neck as you play, then you're going to be glad you made the switch to an ESP LTD Surveyor-5 electric bass. Thanks to its Surveyor double-cutaway body style, those nights of playing through cramped fingers and icing your wrist after the show are over. Between its smooth (not to mention sexy) contour and extremely comfortable balance, you'll practically forget you're wearing a bass as you play. And nothing makes you a better player than being able to relax and focus on the music.

This EMG bass pickup combination delivers a freakily wide range of massive bass tone

Never go without the perfect bass tone again! ESP didn't try to guess what bass tone you'd want when they built the LTD Surveyor-5, so they decided to give you everything. At the bridge, you'll find an EMG MM5-TW, which actually contains both a dual-coil humbucker and a separate single coil pickup in one chassis. One way, it's deep and growling, the other, it's clear and absolutely thunderous. Then at the neck, the LTD Surveyor-5 sports an EMG 40P5 with offset coils for clear lows, punchy mids, and killer definition. Top it off with a 3-band EQ, and you'll always find the tone you need.
