ESP Introduces Flamed Maple LTD B-204 and LTD B-205 Basses

ESP updated their LTD line this year with upgraded versions of their most popular basses. The LTD B-204FM and LTD B-205FM take the flagship models and add a flamed maple top in translucent See Thru Red and See Thru Blue finishes.

Other new features include an improved control layout and a new fingerboard wood: roasted jatoba. Each model is built with a basswood body and a bolt-on, five-piece maple and jatoba neck. ESP loads each body with a pair of ESP designed SB pickups and an ABQ-3 preamp.

The LTD B-204FM and LTD B-205FM are available now with prices of $479 and $499.
