ESP Unveils LTD Orion-5 Bass

Behemoth bassist Orion has got a new signature bass with ESP. The ESP LTD Orion-5 Signature is a five-string model based on their AP series featuring an alder body, maple neck, and ebony fingerboard. Everything is finished in black: the body, the pickguard, the hardware, the neck, and the headstock. Even the Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounder PJ pickups are matched to a Seymour Duncan Blackouts 2-band preamp.

The fingerboard is inlaid with glow-in-the-dark side markers as well as Behemoth’s Trinity logo on the 12th fret. Other features include a treble frequency switch, a 34-inch scale, and an LTD BB-605 bridge.

The ESP LTD Orion-5 is expected to ship next month with a price point of $999.
