With the LTD AP-5, we started with a traditionally-styled body, but then took things in a new, high-performance direction that only ESP can offer. Designed to be a 5-string bass that blows away the expectations of players of any musical style, from metal to punk, reggae to funk, the AP-5 has the great playing feel and the professional components that make it a winner by any definition. It begins with a classic bolt-on design, with an alder body and smooth, thin U-shaped maple neck at 34" scale. For an excellent variety of tone, the AP-5 offers a set of active EMG P5 and LJ5 pickups, with a volume, balance, and tone control to dial in your sound quickly. It offers an ebony fingerboard with 21 extra-jumbo frets, reliable Grover tuners, and a Babicz FCH-5 bridge for a terrific tone and sustains power. Also available in a 4-string version with the LTD AP-4.
