The AP Bass is crafted from alder and features a double cutaway shape for easier access to the higher frets. Alder is a lightweight yet strong sounding tonewood, which makes it ideal for a bass due to its clear, full bodied tone. The lightweight wood also adds to the comfort of the guitar, making it a perfect choice for serious musicians who wish to play all night long with ease.
The maple neck offers a smooth and comfortable playing experience; which allows you to play for longer, ideal for gig nights and long studio sessions. The bright tones from the maple are enhanced by the ebony fingerboard, which is known for its extremely responsive and snappy attack.
The ESP LTD AP Bass is equipped with a pair of EMG pickups, which consist of the EMG P at the neck and the EMG LJ at the bridge position. The EMG P is one of the most popular EMG Bass pickups as it has many sonic possibilities from classic to modern bass tones. The tone produced by the EMG P has excellent articulation with warmth and plenty of punch. The EMG LJ is known for its classic jazz bass characteristics and beautiful harmonic tones. This bridge pickup offers clarity, and a great dynamic range; making it ideal for the stage or in the studio.
For a premium tone, the AP Bass is loaded with high quality hardware, including Grover tuners to keep your tune locked all night long, and the Babicz FCH Bridge which offers a sharp tone with great sustain.
