ESP LTD Thinline Series TL-4Z Natural
There are surprisingly few electro-acoustic bass guitars on the market, which is a shame because they have a special feel and sound. The ones that do exist are often rather large and cumbersome, but fortunately not this ESP LTD model. The natural-coloured TL-4Z has a thin body based on ESP's Eclipse series. It features a set neck construction and has a rosewood fretboard with 22 jumbo frets.
TL-4Z: An eye for detail
The feature that strikes you first on the TL-4Z is undoubtedly its eye catching zebrawood top with black striped grain. In combination with the mahogany sides and back, the instrument has a lovely warm sound. The TL-4Z features a string nut and bridge saddle made of Graph Tech Nubone XB that ensures excellent resonance, while Grover machine heads provide stable tuning.
ESP LTD's Thinline series is specially designed to give musicians the response of an acoustic guitar with the faster feel of an electric guitar. Every model in the series is fitted with Sonicore pickups and a TL-3 preamp with built-in tuner that bear the renowned Fishman name. With its comfortable, thin and lightweight design, this bass is perfect for the studio as well as on the stage.
