I was in axe music this afternoon looking for a new Fender American Standard P-Bass, but they didnt have one. so i decided to give the F-5E a try. it played pretty well, sounded nice, felt really good. i'm planning on spending like $1200 on the Fender, and this ESP is only like #600. have you guys heard anything about them? are they good instruments or should i just go for the Fender?

you know what. i love both fender and esp. both sound good. but esp also has good looks. i'm currently going to order a custom made(by me) esp ltd f series with my design and parts. it's going to be 7,850 dollars. and it's going to be totally worth it! esp rocks!

yeah ive checked it out on the website and stuff. i'm just wondering if it's worth it.
i'm willing on spending $1200 on a bass, so i'm wondering if its worth it to just get the $600 ESP and save a little money or something.

ESP basses aren't known to be great. But along as you like it when you play it, that's your choice.

7850$! IMO, If you aren't a big name musician, shelling out that much cash is unheard of.

I wish anyone would pay for my gear.

Also TS, what ever the problem is, that must suck, but getting a bass which is that pricey for free, that's awesome.
