Yamaha BB-Series Bass Guitars
The latest in Yamaha's storied BB series of bass guitars delivers the superb sound and build quality that this series is known for in a smaller body with even better playability. Featuring a Alder/Maple/Alder construction for quicker transmission of sound from the strings to the body and neck, a firmer 6-bolt miter neck joint for improved stability, and custom-wound pickups that achieve higher output gain while retaining the classic BB voicing, the new lineup of BB basses are a testament to our commitment to musical excellence.
In the BB Series, Yamaha has always sought to offer bassists nothing less than a pure bass guitar. Forgoing passing technical fads in favor in proven technologies and production techniques, every model in the BB Series has been a product of our commitment to creating a bass that allows you to build your own sound rather than defining one for you. These latest models continue this tradition of reliable excellence in superbly crafted bass guitars that you can depend on to give you the sound you need, in any situation you throw at it.
The Legacy Continues
Built for the Working Bassist
We've spent decades working closely with artists to help us forge a clear vision of what working professionals demand of their bass in every capacity. By incorporating this invaluable, real-world experience and insight into practical approaches to the BB series' design, construction, and ultimately its legendary tone, this collaboration has been the impetus behind this iconic instrument's continuing evolution as the hardest working bass in the business.
Yamaha has worked closely with some of the most prolific bassists in the business to craft that unmistakable BB sound— constantly evaluating their ideas and feedback to create the right sound for the music of the moment. The latest series features a miter neck joint that has won praise in the Billy Sheehan Signature/ Attitude Limited III lineup, by increasing the efficiency of vibration transmission to the body for a more resonant, organic feel and tone.
A New Take on a Classic Design
The new lineup has undergone a significant redesign with subtle contour changes and body weight reduction made out of consideration to playability and comfort, while still retaining the classic silhouette of the BB body/ head design. The differences are subtle, but you'll definitely feel them. The new models also feature standard sized pickups for the first time in a BB, for more convenient customization or replacement.
The new BB features an Alder/Maple/Alder multi-laminated body construction. The hard maple center increases body stiffness and accentuates midrange to cut through the mix of a band, and allows a more uniform transmission of vibrations between the body and the maple neck for unparalleled resonance and sustain. (BB Pro, BB700 Series).
6-bolt miter neck joint
Miter bolting holds the neck closer and tighter to the body fusing these two separate components into one. Compared to a conventional bolt-on joint, miter bolting offers more efficient transfer of string vibration throughout the body, for improved sustain and outstanding resonance that brings every note to life. (BB Pro, BB700, BB400 Series).
BB's custom-wound pickups fit standard pickup cavities and feature a medium-high output with vintage voicing for great tone in any setting. BB basses come with pickups selected specifically to match the distinct character of each model in the series, delivering a uniquely versatile sound while retaining the classic BB tone.
Convertible Bridge & Saddle
BB basses incorporate 'Diagonal Body Thru Stringing' which significantly reduces stress on the strings while transferring vibration to the body reliably and efficiently. The bridge comes equipped with a convertible saddle that can be adjusted to 2 different angles for more precise tonal shaping and feel.

FYI...the neck is a good, thick neck with well rounded fretting. It is easy to play, so dont expect the toothpick neck like on the Fender Geddy Lee basses or the newer designed basses that the tight 6-stringers favor.
I got the bass from Amazon Warehouse and it was listed as Used - Very Good. I got the bass for a good price and will keep it, but now I have to buy replacement tuners which means I have to spend more money and won't be able to enjoy the bass I just got. (Can't tune the G string without using pliers.)
