Hi, wondering if someone can tell me the overall length/width of this please? Ordering online and need to know if it will fit in my current hard case or if I need a new one...

My next question. Can I install two active EMG DC pickups to it? Is there enough space to two 9V battery?

Carl N.

Shouldn't be an issue, though if you are unfamiliar with this kind of work I would recommend having a professional perform this modification for you to avoid any unwanted damage to your instrument.

Ferenc N.

Hi

What about the scale length? Is "normal" longscale strings eough? (ernie ball, daddario) or it needs a "super longscale" string?

Carl N.

We note the scale length at 35", you can use super long scale strings

Bring back the ebony top!!!

Carl N.

Thanks for the insight Adam!

Hello,

I know you said the ebony top version is no longer in production, but it is far superior in terms of looks to the new one. Is there any chance I could get the ebony version? I'd pay extra just to get the ebony body like in the previous iteration. Great basses by the way. 

Carl N.

Hey Matěj, unfortunately we since this would be a discontinued instrument it would be no longer available from us, though you may be able to come across one within our dealers' inventory.  If spending more for one doesn't phase you then our ESP Japan custom shop could always produce one specifically for you.

Adam S.

There are plenty available on eBay right now. I had to get one out of sheer panic
