A Real Workhorse Bass!

If you're looking for a thumping good bass, then you've got to check out the ESP E-II Stream 4-string electric bass. Whether you're into rock or pop, metal or fusion, you'll get the tones you're after from this 4-string workhorse. Its combination of a maple neck and white ash body serve up solid action you'll feel through your whole body with every note you play. And when you're going for tonal versatility, you really can't go wrong with the P/J combo you'll get from a set of EMG 3.5" Soapbar series pickups. Top it off with quality hardware and your E-II Stream will be the prize of your collection.

ESP E-II Stream 4-string Electric Bass at a Glance:
  • The perfect tonewoods for stability, sustain, and punch
  • EMG Soapbar pickups deliver classic P/J tone with extra oomph
  • Hipshot A-style bridge offers low-profile comfort and flexible stringing
The perfect tonewoods for stability, sustain, and punch

When it comes to stability and punch, you really can't go wrong with a maple neck, and the thin U contour ESP decided to give the E-II Stream bass, although perfectly comfortable, provides all the mass you need for days of sustain. At the same time, the white ash body offers up delightfully complex harmonics and resonances, and while you may choose to roll off some of that top end with the delightfully effective EQ (always something we look for in a bass, here at Sweetwater), at least it's there if you want it.

EMG Soapbar pickups deliver classic P/J tone with extra oomph

In the absence of a visibly split middle pickup, you're probably not expecting the ESP E-II Stream to deliver classic P/J pickup versatility, but that's exactly what you get from these EMG Soapbar series pickups. For example, the EMG 35P4 actually houses a pair of offset coils that work just like a traditional split-coil pickup, serving up bold lows and brilliant highs. Likewise, the 3.5" EMG 35J is the same pickup as EMG's standard J pickup, providing you with solid low and well-defined midrange. Put it all together with a set of stellar electronics, and you've got seriously versatile tone.

Hipshot A-style bridge offers low-profile comfort and flexible stringing

Do you have a favorite set of bass strings? Wouldn't in be a shame if you couldn't use them with your brand new bass? Thanks to the Hipshot A-style bridge, you probably won't have to worry about that particular issue with the ESP E-II Stream bass. For starters, the Hipshot A-style bridge lets you string your bass either through the body or across the bridge, allowing for a wide range of string lengths. What's more, each of the saddles are fully adjustable, making it easy to intonate for a range of string gauges.

ESP E-II Stream 4-string Electric Bass Features:
  • Totally rock-solid bass you can comfortably use for a wide range of music
  • White ash body and maple neck serve up the solid feel and punch you demand
  • Comfortable 9.45 fingerboard radius and thin U contour bolts-on neck are a pleasure to play
  • EMG 35P4 mid and 35J bridge pickup provide classic P/J pickup versatility
  • Active electronics, including a 2-band EQ, make shaping your tone easy
  • Hipshot A-style bridge accommodates both string-though and bridge mounting strings
  • Schaller Security Lock strap buttons keep you from accidentally dropping your axe
  • Hardshell case included
The versatile ESP E-II Stream a real workhorse bass!
