NOTE: Due to ongoing challenges in the global supply chain, instruments purchased from ShopESP that are not currently in stock may take an extended time frame to be delivered.

With the LTD AP-4 and AP-5, we started with a traditionally-styled body, but then took things in a new, high-performance direction that only ESP can offer. Designed to be a bass that blows away the expectations of players of any musical style, from metal to punk, reggae to funk, the AP-4 and 5-string AP-5 have the great playing feel and the professional components that make it a winner by any definition. It begins with a classic bolt-on design, with an alder body and smooth, thin U-shaped maple neck at 34" scale. For an excellent variety of tone, the AP-4 offers a set of active EMG P and LJ pickups, with a volume, balance, and tone control to dial in your sound quickly. It offers a Macassar ebony fingerboard with 21 extra-jumbo frets, reliable Grover tuners, and a Babicz FCH-4 bridge for terrific tone transfer and sustain. Available in Black and Pelham Blue finishes.

Hi! I had a question about the AP-5.
Could you provide neck width and thickness at the 12th fret?

Thank you very much,

John

The width at the nut will be 45mm and 22.5mm at the 12th fret, hope this helps

It really is a beautiful instrument. It would be interesting to see it in a white (maybe even white/silver sparkle) finish.

Hi Marble, Thanks for those suggestions. Would look quite nice in white I think.
