ESP is a great company, their basses are no exception. I don't know how they'd compare to a Fender J though, never played one.

ESP basses are perfect... for metal. They can be used in other styles of music, but they lack the versatility of other basses.

I disagree with the versatility comment. Get one. I have an ltd F254 (which is their midline) and love it. I have used it for metal (which it is awesome for), for classic rock, jazz(which i got complimented on my tone, even by my jazz snob teacher), and even progressive and blues. ESPs are awesome, for their price, they are hard to beat, to find equal quality expect to pay more.

I don't deny they aren't versatile and nice, but I payed 200 dollars for a bass that plays just as well as a ltd and feels much better. Why pay more for less?
for 300, I can find a much better bass. but I would probably save up for something else.
