This is a factory certified 2nd.

The factory certified 2nd has an identifying "2" stamped on the back. These guitars were found to have minor cosmetic blemishes that kept them from being offered as first quality. Anything noteworthy will be pictured. They may have light scratches that don't show up in photos and are even hard to see without light reflection. Similar designations from other companies are B Stock or Scratch & Dent. The blemishes do not affect playability or structural integrity of the instrument. The guitars are set up and ready to play by ESP. They come with a 90 day warranty from ESP.

The "RB" in this bass series stands for "Rocco's Bass", referring to none other than the man who co-designed this instrument and inspired thousands of players with his innovations in fingerstyle funk: Rocco Prestia of the immortal Bay Area funk/R&B masters Tower of Power. The LTD RB-1005SM has been updated for 2017, and is about as serious of a professional-quality bass as you can imagine. It starts with some traditional design cues, like its bolt-on construction at 34" scale. But from there, the RB-1005SM goes straight uptown with a dense swamp ash body, a figured spalted maple top in Natural Satin finish, a C-shaped five-piece maple and walnut neck, and an ebony fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets. If you want great-sounding, flexible tone, the RB-1005SM gives it to you in droves with Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound P5 and J5 pickups, with simple volume, balance, and tone controls. The RB-1005SM also includes high-quality Grover tuners, and a Gotoh bridge with string-thru-body design for fantastic sustain.
