Has anyone ever played on (or owns) an ESP bass, particularly an AX-104 or AX-404
If so how do you like them? Any problems, etc
I'm thinking about getting a bass in the future

Firslty, why bump 4 mins after you last posted? There is an edit button.

As for ESP basses, they generally have a very 'metal' image. My personal feelings on them are that they are good basses, but I generally prefer the alternatives in the price range of all of their basses.

I have an ESP bass, B-55 5 string. And an AX-50 guitar. They have a good sound if you have a good amp. My B-55 is a very basic shape, nothing flashy.

ESP Company motto:

"Well, we're not as bad as BC Rich..."

High end models from both companies are solid, but generally outclassed by similarly priced competitors.

Low end models from BC Rich are pretty much a guaranteed fail. Buying low end models from ESP is just more like playing roulette on a heavily biased table.


Without a ball.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

Well, they're not for everyone. And certainly not for everything! But, as a metalhead, my opinion is that their more expensive models are really really nice.

However, as a funky dude I'd recommend something more versatile. Like everyone else will.
