ESP LTD AP-4 Bass Guitar - Candy Apple Red
For the LTD AP-4, ESP started with a traditional bolt-on electric bass design — premium alder body and fast, Thin "U"-profile maple neck with a silky-smooth ebony fingerboard — but then took it in a decidedly modern, high-performance direction. Their goal: an electric bass guitar that would exceed the expectations of bassists in any genre.
Powerful EMG P/J pickups
The AP-4 holds down the low end in style. That’s largely thanks to active electronics and a pair of powerful EMG pickups, fitted in classic P/J configuration. This arrangement gives you the low-end punch from the split-coil EMG P pickup in the middle position, along with the aggressive growl from the EMG LJ single-coil at the bridge. Mix up your signature blend with the volume, pickup balance, and tone controls, and you’re ready to rock.
Solid 6-bolt neck join for super sustain
There’s a reason for the enduring popularity of basses with bolt-on necks — they sound punchy and quite different from neck-through and set-neck designs. ESP has taken the classic 4-bolt design to the next level with their 6-bolt neck join, which provides more contact between neck and body for greater stability, vibrational transfer, and sustain. Pick up an ESP LTD AP-4, and experience everything bolt-on construction has to offer.
ESP LTD: huge value with ESP quality
ESP’s LTD marque was created to bring a more affordable version of the classic designs and quality of ESP guitars to a new market. The entire ESP LTD line of instruments features premium tonewoods, quality pickups, and solid hardware for a lifetime of use.
