The ESP E-II series are Japanese built models, crafted by ESP luthiers and designed for musicians who're looking for high-end models at a more affordable price. The J-4 has everything you could desire in a bass: solid construction, a carefully selected combination of tonewoods, drop-dead gorgeous looks and mind-blowing tone.

The ESP E-II J-4 body is a marriage that brings together the best of both worlds - power and elegance. The chambered ash body is responsible for creating a swelling mid to low-end warmth, whilst the quilted maple top ensures the upper register is appropriately represented. The lightweight feel of the J-4 make it a delight to play and the eye-catching amber finish is sure to get you noticed.

The perfect counterpoint to the resounding tone produced by the body rests in the snappy and articulate maple neck and fingerboard combination. The freedom to easily reach every note is guaranteed thanks to the sculpted cutaway at the 21st fret. Whatever style you play, you'll find your home in this fingerboard. Few other basses can boast quite as satisfying a playing feel, whilst serving up the most precise and defined response you could imagine.

The ESP E-II J-4 comes fitted with a Seymour Duncan SJB-1N in the neck position and a Seymour Duncan SJB-1B in the bridge position. These pickups are perfect for those looking for a vintage-correct true single-coil that lends itself beautifully to country, pop, blues and classic rock styles. Thanks to the hand-ground Alnico 5 magnets - wound to run warm, not hot - the natural timbre of the tonewoods can shine without unwanted coloration or distortion from the pickups. The built-in Seymour Duncan KH-1 2-Band EQ gives you even greater tonal control and allows you to put your own creative touches into the mix.

Resilient Grover tuners keep your tuning locked in place throughout each and every performance, only budging when you decide to adopt a different tuning. The Gotoh bridge ensures the string's connection to the body is as smooth and seamless as possible, improving sustain and giving you the reassurance to play exactly how you want to.

In short, the ESP E-II J-4 bass guitar is simply excellent. If you're looking for a jazz style bass that is built to a professional standard, sounds amazing, is versatile to genre hop with, and plays like a dream, you've just found it.
