The ESP Stream-204 electric bass rocks a mahogany body, a thin-U maple neck, 34" scale and 21 extra-jumbo frets on a rosewood fingerboard. And a pair of active ESP designed SB-4 bridge and neck pickups pushes all your earth-rumbling notes down the signal path. The LTD-DB-4 bridge makes sure your notes have the maximum sustain imaginable while the LTD tuners keep everything cinched down and in-tune through heavy crunches and string-stretching licks.

I purchased my first bass when I was 15 years old. It is a 1984 Electra/Westone Phoenix (yes I am that old). I have put together quite a collection of basses since then. This ESP LTD Stream is the only bass I have played that has the tone and feel of my old number 1. So naturally, I feel right at home playing it. As I really don't need any additional instruments, I tend to only look for bargains. I purchased this bass during the Custom Guitar's Friend St. Patrick's Day sale and also used by reward points so I was able to get this bass at a great out-of-pocket price.
That being said, I could not get the neck/string action dialed in. I had to take it to a pro. I shim had to be placed under the nut to get this to play properly.
Final analysis? If you can get this bass on sale, I recommend it. Great looks, great feel, great tone. Be prepared to buy a case (not included) and have it professionally set up before you will be able to use it effectively. I intend to use it mainly as a back-up and rehearsal instrument. It would make a great bass for a novice to start on.
