Description

Designed by Yamaha and Nathan East, bassist for Eric Clapton and Phil Collins. For years the Yamaha BB Series basses have defined the best in bass technology, building a reputation for their excellent tone and sustain, comfortable feel, and quiet performance. This new BB model carries on the tradition with a slim-line, solid alder body topped with premium maple for unsurpassed looks, comfort, and tone. A thru-body maple and mahogany neck offers the ultimate in tone and stability, while its ebony fretboard has a smooth violin-type feel. Active electronics include 2 Alnico V-Stack pickups and a Nathan East NE1 parametric EQ for maximum sound-shaping capability. Die-cast gold with white tuners. Includes hardshell case.
