ESP Announces John Campbell Signature Bass


Lamb of God bassist John Campbell has a new signature bass from ESP called the LTD JC-4FM. Based on the company’s Stream model, the bass is customized to Campbell’s liking, including a flamed maple top with a smooth satin black finish on its swamp ash body’s back and sides.

It’s also built with a five-piece maple and bubinga neck topped with a rosewood fingerboard. The fingerboard has custom inlay markers while glow-in-the-dark side markers allow for visibility in the dark. For electronics, ESP fits the bass with EMG 35P4X and EMG 35JX active pickups matched to an EMG BTC 2-band EQ. Other features include Hipshot Ultralite tuners and an A Style Bridge.

The ESP LTD JC-4FM is available now with a street price of $1,299.
