I bought my b-10 a while back and its a beautiful instrument in satin black.

Which makes it saddening that i had to give it in for repairs twice now. I have one that was made in china and i dont know if its a bad batch but i have had issues with the truss rod and neck for the entire time i've been having this instrument. Other than that it is a great guitar made out of solid materials with a very nice tone for the price. Definitely happy to have made this my first beginner bass guitar.

Sorry for this stupid question.

I just received my B10, but there was no manual, or whatever, shipped with it.

I would like to know what are the 3 buttons related to. The first one (neck side) seems to be a volume, but what are the 2 others related to exactly?

Thanks in advance!

Does the B-10 have the same configuration as the old B-50?

Todd B. ESP

Yes basically the same configuration but it has a boost control.

What happens with B-50?

B-50 has been discontinued a few years ago.
