Awesome Aguilar Pickups + Gorgeous Finish = One Top-Shelf ESP Bass

The ESP LTD RB1004 electric bass is a beauty to look at, hold, play, and hear. An attractive burled/spalted maple top gives this ESP bass stellar visual flair, while its swamp ash body yields plenty of well-balanced resonance. You have an Aguilar P single-coil pickup at the neck and an Aguilar J Hum Canceling single-coil at the bridge, and OBP-2 2-Band EQ controls help you shape your signal to sound its best. A five-piece maple and walnut neck stretches 22 frets over a maple fingerboard, with tasteful oval inlays to add an extra touch of finesse to the RB1004.

Rocco Prestia Approved

ESP worked together with the legendary bassist Rocco Prestia to craft this tonally dynamic bass guitar. The end result is an ESP LTD bass that boasts a healthy helping of visual appeal, clear and inviting sound, and a comfortable feel that flows from your fingers to your amplifier in fluid seamless fashion. You'll love this bass the instant you hit your first note.

Maple and Swamp Ash Tonewoods

The ESP LTD RB1004's solid burled maple or spalted maple top is a pleasure to look at. It brings in a dash of treble to your signal that's never too harsh or unwelcomed. A favorite tonewood of bassists, swamp ash keeps everything evenly balanced and won't weigh you down the way heavier woods like mahogany do. The RB body shape makes for a comfy fit, and the beveled contour offers a sleek modern look.

Walnut and Maple Neck

The five-piece maple and walnut neck on your ESP LTD RB1004 electric bass features 22 frets with cozy action. The maple fingerboard has attractive oval inlays that pair well with the burled maple top. The C shape offers a welcoming feel for your hand as you change positions moving up or down the fretboard.

Aguilar PJ Pickups and Active EQ

The Aguilar P single-coil pickup at the neck really captures the body of this bass. You'll hear and feel that low end envelop the room without tracking in any unwanted low-mid mud. The Aguilar J Hum Canceling single-coil at the bridge brings in a little more edge and a slight mid-range cut. Aside from your volume and pickup balance dials, you have OBP-2 2-Band EQ controls to really hone in on the frequencies you're aiming for.

ESP LTD RB1004 Electric Bass

zZounds Expert Review
When I saw the ESP LTD RB1004, I was struck by its eye-catching spalted maple top. Then when I saw the "Aguilar" logo on the pickups, I knew I had to try it out. Aguilar makes great bass pickups, and I was excited to see the ESP LTD RB1004 utilize them. The RB1004 was very easy to play, and had a super fat sound. The low-end presence is HUGE on this bass. After having played it, I wasn't surprised to find out that Rocco Prestia helped with the RB1004's design. I was able to dial in several different tones -- a true testament to this bass's versatility. This comes largely from the the P/J pickup configuration -- which allows you to get both a fat growl, and focused clarity at the same time. It's great to see ESP expanding their bass game!
