With the ESP LTD D6 electric bass guitar, ESP brings you an attractive 6-string bass at a killer price! This stunning instrument features a rock-solid neck-thru-body design and excellent hardware appointments. The 6-string neck feels smooth and fast under the hands, and is a real joy to play. You'll appreciate the distinctive look and sound of the D6's all-merbau body, as well as the built-in 3-band active EQ that puts it into a class of its own.

Merbau: A Rare and Unique Tonewood

One of the first things you'll notice about the ESP LTD D6 is unique grain of the all-merbau body. Merbau is a flowering tree native to the Indo-Pacific region, known for its extreme durability and density. As a tonewood, merbau is exceptionally clear and articulate, delivering cleanly intonated notes that range from smooth to punchy as your musical needs dictate. For the ESP LTD D6, the merbau body has been carved into an elegant and contemporary "flowing" design that feels equally great to play sitting down or strapped on.

An Exceptionally Well-Conceived Neck

As you may know, 6-string bass neck designs often veer into the realm of unplayability, due to the girth and weight required to support the string tension. The 5-piece mahogany/maple neck on the ESP LTD D6, however, is carved to a comfortable and super-thin "U" shape contour with a 54mm nut width that should feel comfortable and fast under your fingers. The scale length is a standard 34 inches, rather than the potentially awkward 35-inch scale length found on many other 6-strings. The all-rosewood fingerboard is set with 24 extra jumbo frets.

ESP-Designed Pickups with an Active EQ to Match

The bridge and neck pickups on the ESP LTD D6 are proprietary ESP-designed SB-6s. These pickups offer you an incredibly wide range of tonal capability. And to help you get more tonal power than nearly any other instrument, the ESP LTD D6 distinguishes itself further with a 3-band active EQ system that you'll find conveniently located right underneath the Volume and Tone controls.

D6 Doesn't Skimp on The Hardware

The ESP LTD D6 is finished with black nickel hardware throughout that looks and feels great. The Grover tuners keep you squarely in tune, even if you're using this axe for serious thrashing.

Features:

-Neck-Thru-Body Design
- All-Merbau Body
- 5-piece Mahogany/Maple Neck
- Rosewood Fingerboard
- ESP SB-6 Pickups
- ESP ABQ-3 3-Band Active EQ
- 54mm Standard Nut
- Extra Thin U Neck Contour
- 24 Extra Jumbo Frets
- Black Nickel Hardware
- Grover Tuners
- ESP DB-6 Bridge

With its merbau body and mahogany/maple neck in a through-body design, the ESP LTD D-6 yields a tonal consistency and solidity that you can really feel when you play it -- rich with earthy resonance and sustain. Try on this bass and see how great 6 strings can feel!

Product Description

The ESP LTD D6 6-string Bass Guitar is a fantastic neck-thru-body bass with powerful 3-band EQ and a fast-playing neck. The D6 sounds as incredible as it looks. The body is made of merbau, a superb, if often overlooked tonewood. The neck is 5-piece maple and mahogany, and the 24-fret fingerboard is made of rosewood. The D6 has a 34-inch scale length, which is great for players who are not used to the 35-inch scale often found on 6-string basses.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (19 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great bargain "
Overall: What a great bass! I've never had a 3 band powered eq on my guitar and I'm impressed with the tonal control it gives you. The pickups are active and sound great. It is a little heavy but so are alot of guitars. I thought it be really heavy judging from other reviews. Just make sure you get a good strap (and locks) and you will be fine. A great guitar with the specs of a more expensive bass. Good job ESP LTD!
Style of Music: Metal, rock, blues, ambient, funk, pretty much whatever is currently inspiring me.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Unbelievable guitar for the money..."
Overall: This bass is perfect. I've never heard such a diverse sound of any bass I've played. If you can't find the right tone with this thing, it doesn't exist. Deep grumbling lows or mid level funk slaps... anything you need in one instrument! I've not had this much fun playing music in years, I highly recommend it!
Style of Music: Multiple types of metal and electronic music.
