Crossroads Guitar Festival - Nathan East


collapse expand iconDescription

The BBNE2 was 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 BBNE2 Nathan East signature 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. It also comes with a die-cast gold hardware and white tuners.

The BBNE2 includes a hardshell case.
