ESP Introduces LTD RB Series Design with Rocco Prestia
ESP has introduced the RB Series of basses to their LTD line. Designed over the course of a year with Tower of Power’s Rocco Prestia, the bass is built to offer tonal flexibility.

The RB comes in 4-, 5-, and 6-string versions in either Natural or Honey Natural finishes. Each bass is fitted with Aguilar PJ pickups and an Aguilar OBP-2 preamp with a 2-band EQ.
