Hi ESP, I'm upgrading from a F-104, and the F-4E is exactly what I want, but is it possible to get one with the smooth body (similar to the B-4E)? Nothing fancy, just without the pointy parts.

Hey ESP, are you still making the F-4E?  I can't find them anywhere.  Or is it just because of Coved 19

Carl N.

yes, this is a current model

John D.

Thanks Carl.  I did find one.  I live in a dry climate.  Is there anything I need to do for the wood?  With the Warwick's I've had I needed to put bees wax on them once a month.  But this appears to have a leaker over the wood.

If I wanted to replace the pickups on this bass, would I use active or passive pickups?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Bunter, you can use either type. Currently the pickups on this bass are passive pickups, but they run through an active preamp which turns the whole system active. You could also use active pickups in this type of setup.

I have the first ebony top version of this bass, and even though I have had many much more expensive basses, that is the one I love the most. I just returned an Ibanez SR2605 because I couldn't justify spending so much money on a new bass, when this one already fits me like a glove.

The longer 35" scale really adds the extra stability, and the neck is fast as lightning. The only thing is that you do have to stand and play it with a strap at all times, because the bottom horn protrusion will dig into your thigh when you sit and play.

Fantastic bass for the money.

Hey James, Thanks for your insightful review. Glad to hear you like this design!
