Bass of the Week: ESP E-II Stream SL-5
This week we’re taking a look at the ESP E-II Stream SL-5, a bigger variation on the bass model they debuted in 2014. The SL-5 is a five-string version with a 35-inch scale and larger body than its predecessors.
As part of the E-II series, the Stream SL-5 is built in ESP’s Japanese factory. Available in Deep Red Metallic Satin and Snow White finishes, the bass is built with a white ash body, three-piece maple neck, and an ebony fretboard fitted with block inlays. Its electronics include a pair of EMG40 pickups and an EMG BTC 2-band EQ with a mini switch control. The hardware features Gotoh tuners and a Hipshot A-Style bridge.
