The ESP LTD B-415 SM NS is a pro-quality bass packed full of premium features, making it a fantastic choice for serious bassists. Equipped with powerful EMG humbuckers and an active 3-band EQ, this stunning Spalted Maple-topped instrument is versatile enough for a variety of styles - and certainly looks the part too!


This gorgeous bass follows a neck-thru-body construction, giving the B-415 piano-like sustain and a high-end feel. The body is crafted from light Swamp Ash, with its balanced tonal qualities serving as an excellent tonal foundation for the potent pickups.

The ESP LTD B-415 boasts a bright-sounding 5-piece Maple/Walnut neck, with the layered effect ensuring rock-solid stability and the materials enhancing the highs for great note articulation. The extra-thin, U-shaped neck profile enables fast playing, especially with the smooth satin finish. Adorned with a slick Rosewood fingerboard, this tonewood adds some essential mid-range warmth and offers excellent comfort under the fingers.

Electronics & Hardware

An active set of EMG pickups really give the LTD B-415 its compelling voice. With a 40DC in the bridge and a 40P5 in the neck position, these humbuckers have a thick and authoritative sound that can easily be tweaked via the EMG B64 3-band EQ - letting you control the lows, mids and highs.

The ESP LTD B-415 isn't let down by its hardware appointments either - they're also top-notch! With ESP's own BB-605 bridge; this high-mass, string-thru-body design ensures maximum string vibration transference for optimal resonance and sustain. At the other end of the instrument you'll find a set of Grover tuners, sure to keep your tuning super-stable.
