Lead the Way
The body of the ESP LTD B-15 Electric Bass Guitar is made from diligently selected basswood for balanced tonality. Basswood offers an out-front sound by flattening sharp highs making the B-15 a fitting choice for guitarists who wish to assert their presence in a band performance. It mutes complex overtones to produce fundamental-rich sounds with a beefy midrange. Thus, guitarists playing to an audience of heavy metal or hard rock aficionados can use this guitar to its full advantage.
The guitar’s bolt-on maple neck construction yields enhanced resonance and sustain and optimal control while experimenting with high-energy playing styles. The thin, U-shape contour with double cutaway facilitates quick access to the top frets of the guitar so that you get enough freedom of movement into the upper registers. Furthermore, the fretboard is made from carefully selected rosewood for strength and longevity. The voice of this tonewood is distinguished by throaty growls and bright treble notes. Rosewood helps accommodate a whole gamut of musical genres thanks to its wide tonal range. It absorbs stray overtones into its oily pores to offer clean sounds. In a nutshell, all of the above-mentioned factors make for immense playing comfort during intense practice sessions and extended performances.
The B-15 electric guitar features the ESP DP-5 split-coil pickup for warm tones. The wide bass response offered by this pickup makes the B-15 suitable for playing the jazz and heavy metal genres. With the ESP DP-5, you obtain a faithful approximation of the guitar’s natural tones.

Very impressed with the delivery procedure. Even more impressed wit the the actual guitar.
Overall sound is good... Tone control causing static noise
One of the best bass I have used by far! Sound and wood is just too good.
i purchsed this esp b-15 6yrs back n still using it...im using it regularly on stage & sometimes for recordings n still it is in mint condition.. The LTD B-15 bass starts with a basswood body, complemented by a bolt-on maple neck with a rosewood fretboard that begs to be played. The thin U neck contour is easy on the beginner's hands, along with extra-jumbo frets that help you find the right note with ease.
This is my 1st bass n i love it so much. I'm using it for my gigs n recording too. The build quality is way above and beyond and the sound is so much better. It actually has a real "punch" and "growl"...Having an extra lower B string really makes a difference...Tone sounds pretty good and cuts through the mix quite easily! Lighter weight bass and comes with gigbag....total worth it...
Very pleasantly surprised at the quality bass I got for such a great deal. I personally never liked Basses with active pickups and this one fits me needs perfectly!
