2002 ESP-Made Seymour Duncan Traditional Series DP-95R P Bass, Lake Placid Blue, Japan


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2002 ESP-made Seymour Duncan DP-95R in excellent condition and in perfect working order. An upscale iteration of the P Bass platform produced in Japan by ESP and marketed under the Seymour Duncan name, this Traditional Series bass captures the look and feel of a Fender, loaded with a SPB-3 Quarter Pounder Basslines pickup.

Tonewoods include an alder body, maple neck, and thick slab rosewood fretboard. The SPB-3 pickup has oversized 1/4“ diameter pole pieces, offering a full, fat and punchy sound with great midrange presence and a broad frequency range. Rolling back the Tone knob can achieve a pillowy thump that doesn't lack in authority and roundness. This DP-95R weighs 8lbs 13oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 45-100 roundwound strings, comfortable action, and spot-on intonation.

The gloss Lake Placid Blue finish exhibits some light scuffing beyond the pickguard on either side of the pick path, an area of buckle rash central to the back, and a number of minor dings along the lower bout perimeter and on the back. A pair of bridge cover mounting holes have also been doweled and touched-up. The smooth gloss on the neck profile is nigh flawless.
