Ebony has been used in several locations on the instrument such as the fingerboard, reverse style tailpiece, and upper nut. Yamaha has also changed the saddle material from ABS to ebony, which has had a positive influence on tone.
A new preamp and control section has been designed to deliver superior sound quality. The unit incorporates a passive direct switch that allows direct output of the piezo signal to external equipment. This lets you tap directly into the pure, focused tone of the instrument to send its output to the amp.
Fine tuning the bridges size and thickness has given the SLB200LTD a tone with a quicker response that is clear and well balanced over the instrument's entire range. Height adjusters, redesigned with new materials and finish, deliver a purer, more focused tone.
Crafted from beautifully figured curly maple, the neck on the SLB200LTD feels extremely comfortable and inviting to play, providing an intimate connection between the player and the instrument.
Using a removable frame that folds up plus additional size reduction through the use of special tailpiece and endpin designs, the SLB200LTD its into a compact case that makes transport easy.
The SLB200LTD features an Antique Brown finish that brings out the beauty of the woods grain giving it a rich and impressive look. The neck has an oil finish that provides the right amount of smoothness and stability that provide a level of comfort and playability that bassists look for in an instrument. On stage it looks great, standing out underneath the stage lights with its professional look and details.
