Thanks for coming back to me Todd, I love my current ESP bass as in weight, sound etc so I'd like to keep the Spalted Maple body so it has the same feel, the colour that caught my eye was the Black Aqua, but I suppose the bass would look great in any Light Blue 

Thanks

Hi Simon, Thanks for letting me know about those colors. I don't know that we can make anything happen by your b-day but thanks for the suggestions!

Simon T.

Hi, is it possible to to have this made in another colour other than the Black Satin or Natural Satin? I already have the Natural Satin and I love it, but looking for another for my 40th! 

Thanks

HI Simon, Good question. We have not offered in another color and it's not possible to make special orders like this. The only solution will be for us to release one in a different color in the future, but there are no plans for that currently. What color would you be looking for and would you still want it over the spalted maple top? Keep in mind that most colors are difficult or impossible to paint over this wood because it varies so much in the color of the wood grain.

Thanks so much for answering my questions...I just had one more. I sit usually in the " classical guitar" position and don't rest the bass on my knee, I was just wondering on the six string D or B series , is there any neck dive? Thanks 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Ken, I think if you are sitting and holding the bass in the classical position, it won't feel too neck heavy. But if were to hold it by the strap standing up, it might feel a little neck heavy, although I think it's not noticeably heavy. One other thing to note is that the body is slightly larger than the regular 4 or 5 string body so that helps with the balance.

Thank you very much Todd, greetings from italy!

So the difference compared to the B-206 Natural Satin is just on the color of the top right?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Matteo, yes this is correct. The color is on the entire body but not the back of the neck.
