Lead by Example
The basswood construction of the body renders well-balanced tonality. Thanks to the ability of this tonewood to clip sharp highs, this guitar produces an out-front sound and offers excellent projection on-stage. The guitar’s voice is characterized by a muscular midrange resulting from muting of complex overtones. Thus, if you are a heavy metal or hard rock artist, you are sure to make the most of this guitar.
It’s All About ‘U’
This guitar features a U-shaped bolt-on neck construction for enhanced sustain and resonance. Such a profile gives you optimum control for playing high-intensity genres. The double-cutaway design allows quick access to the top frets of the guitar. This offers adequate freedom of movement into the upper registers. Furthermore, the fretboard is crafted from judiciously selected rosewood for durability and strength. The sound delivered by this tonewood is marked by well-defined lows, bell-tone highs, and a scooped midrange. The wide tonal range of rosewood makes for accommodation of a broad array of musical styles from jazz to heavy metal. The oily pores of rosewood absorb undesirable overtones to provide warm sounds rich in fundamentals. All in all, these features translate into immense comfort and versatile playability.
The B-55 electric bass guitar is provided with the ESP LDJ and LDP pickups at the bridge and neck positions, respectively. You have the ATB-1 active tone boost as well as volume and tone control functions for adjusting the output level as per your requirements.
