Neck-thru design for tonal intensity.

The inspiration for the unique shape and design of the 5-string LTD F-5E Bass Guitar 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, LTD F-series basses feature asymmetrical curves, beveled edges, and points in places you won't see on any other guitar, let alone a bass. The double cutaway design gives the upper and lower horns the appearance of a skeletal finger and thumb.

The LTD F-5E Electric Bass differs from it's siblings in that it features a 5-piece maple/mahogany neck-thru-body design, a mahogany body with a flamed maple top, and an ebony fingerboard. All of the distinct, natural hues of these woods combine for rich visuals

The LTD F-5E Bass has an extra thin "U" contoured maple neck and, with it's 35" scale and deep cutaways you get full access to the 24 XJ frets. Massive bottom end is produced by dual ESP SB-5 pickups that can be tweaked to your liking with the ESP ABQ-3 3-band EQ. Rounding out the features is an ESP BB-605 string-thru-body bridge, ESP tuners, and control knobs, all finished in black nickel.
