Marten Andersson unveils ESP 8 string bass -
Bass Player Marten Andersson (Lizzy Borden, George Lynch,
Starwood), a long time player and endorsee of ESP, has unveiled photo's of his
new 8 string ESP Bass. "I have played ESP's for most of my life," explained
Marten Andersson. "Working together with ESP, and based on my ideas and specs
we have created a prototype of my first custom bass. This is a true, unique 8
string bass that has been refined in my head for a couple of years. I chose
top components and the highest standards and craftsmanship that ESP offers.
This bass stays in tune throughout a full headlining set and it is one of the
loudest, most powerful basses I have ever heard."
Only available factory direct through ESP (at the moment)
as a built to order. This bass was designed on Andersson's original
specifications and comes with top of the line pickups and hardware, but can be
outfitted with either EMG or Seymour Duncan pickups, Schaller or Dunlop
Straplocks, and Black or Chrome hardware. Featuring a standard 8 string ESP B
Series neck (with different headstock), 34" scale with 24 frets. The model
incorporates a metallic red sparkle finish with star inlays as fret markers.
Fretboard/inlay: rosewood/stars and Gotoh Tuners.
The new signature bass can be seen in the Lizzy Borden video ''Under Your
Skin" which premiered on MTV's Headbangers Ball last weekend. The track comes
off Lizzy Borden's CD "Appointment With Death" out world-wide on Metal Blade
