Just got this bass. It is simply awesome! Perfectly crafted, looks incredible, and the ESP passive pickups sound excellent! A lot of bass for the money.

This has been listed as 'pre-order only' for a long time. When will it be in stock? I hope it's not being discontinued.

Love the bass the inlays are fantastic and the tone is perfect with passive electronics, through my Ampeg amp. Although mine came with a really high action, is this an intentional design. Not that im complaining, I still find it a pleasure to play.

Hey Scot, while these instruments are setup at our facility before going out into the world they can require a fresh setup by the time they get into your hands.  Changes in climate can cause an instrument to lose it's factory setup.  This is an assumption, but most of the time the instrument's truss rod will just need tightening.  If you are unfamiliar with working on your own instruments I would recommend having a professional guitar technician setup this bass to your preference.
