ESP LTD AP-4 Black Metal bass offers the classic shape of the AP Series basses, with a bolt-on maple neck and an alder body, but adds the distinctive menacing cosmetic vibe of Black Satin finish, all black hardware, a black LTD logo on the reversed headstock, and glow-in-the-dark side markers.

The bass includes pro-quality components including Grover tuners, a Babicz FCH-4 bridge, and a single EMG 35CS active humbucker pickup.
