Four-string electric bass with pickups and active electronics by Seymour Duncan

The ESP LTD GB-4 Black comes in a chic "Modern Retro" design, whose classic looks hide a surprisingly versatile electric bass for almost any application. This is based ESP on a body of light swamp ash and a fivefold screwed maple neck in the comfortable "Thin U" profile. In addition, two Seymour Duncan SSB-4 passive soapbar pickups Seymour Duncan coupled with 3-band active electronics from provide variable sounds. Last but not least the ESP LTD GB-4 has a Gotoh 404BO-4 bass bridge and precise mechanics in Vintage style.

ESP LTD GB-4 with first-class gaming comfort

During the development of the LTD GB-4 Black, special attention was paid to the high playing comfort of the curved retro design. Accordingly, the curved offset body made of swamp ash assumes an optimal playing position both on the bass strap and on the thigh. At the same time, the fivefold screwed maple neck is extremely comfortable to hold thanks to the "Thin U" profile and a saddle width of just 38 mm, so that every bass line between the 21 frets of the Pau Ferro fingerboard goes out of your fingers by itself.

With two Seymour Duncan SSB-4 passive soapbar pickups and active 3-band tone control with "slap" switch, the ESP LTD GB-4 delivers versatile bass sounds.

Pickups and active electronics from Seymour Duncan

Despite its classic appearance, the ESP LTD GB-4 turns out to be a versatile all-rounder at the bass amplifier, with no genre or sound alien to it. The Seymour Duncan SSB-4 Passive Soapbar Pickups, built into the bridge and middle position, deliver a juicy tone, whose powerful punch and lively dynamics skilfully support expressive bass playing. The pickups are also supported by the active Seymour Duncan STC-3M3 3-band tone control, which can be used to precisely tune the sound image. A pull on the Push/Pull switch in the Volume switch also activates the "Slap" preset with an equalizer tuning optimized for slapping.

Reliable hardware equipment

Last but not least, the ESP LTD GB-4 Black convinces with high-quality and reliable hardware equipment. Accordingly, the Gotoh 404BO bridge sits on the body, whose massive construction supports an even sound development and a long sustain. At the same time, four individually adjustable string riders guarantee optimum adjustment of intonation and string position. LTD Vintage Style Bass Tuners on the headstock ensure precise and stable tuning.
