Bass Player Marten Andersson Unveils new 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.”
