Wicked looking but hand friendly.
The inspiration for the unique shape and design of the LTD F-155DX Bass from ESP would appear to be a mix of Route 66 Interstate signs and weaponry from an old Dungeons & Dragons manual. Forgoing the traditional, rounded apple bottom bass, the LTD F-series basses feature off-centered curves, beveled edges, and points in places you won't see on any other guitar, let alone a bass. The double cutaway design makes the bass guitar's upper and lower horns appear to be a skeletal finger and thumb respectively.
The LTD F-155DX has 5 strings, with a thin "U" contoured maple neck and 35" scale. The body is made of basswood with a flamed maple top that contrasts subtly with the rosewood fingerboard. As your fingers explore the 24 XJ frets your rhythms and melodies are trapped by dual ESP SB-5 pickups and can be reshaped with the ESP ABQ-3 3 band EQ. The ESP DB-5 string-thru-body bridge, tuners, and control knobs are all black nickel.

Comments about ESP LTD F-155DX 5-String Bass Guitar:
Overall a pretty good guitar for the price.
Only real complaints are some fret buzz at the 14th fret on the D string, and when I had it set up, they had to put a shim under the neck to get it to intonate right. The shop here only charged a nominal fee for the whoe setup though, so not a major loss.
Swap out the strap buttons with your favorite strap locks, and put a good strap on it, you'll be in heaven. It weight over 20 lbs, so it will wear on your shoulder a bit, so make sure you get a wide one (I got a 3 inch and it helps a lot). It's extremely well balanced too. Doesn't pull one way or the other.
All in all, I'm happy with it, and would even buy another if needed.
