Billy Sheehan - Thank You Billy


collapse expand iconDescription

The Yamaha Billy Sheehan Signature Attitude 3 electric bass guitar features Sheehan's sound taken to a new level, with refined characteristics.

The Attitude 3's low end is powerful and bold, yet tight and controlled. The highs are clear and musical and the mid drives with a power rarely heard. The latest technology, including Yamaha's spline jointed body and exclusive A.R.E. and IRA wood treatments together with newly designed pickups and a totally reworked neck joint make this bass something else. And with Billy's involvement every step of the way, playability is like no other guitar. It's clearly an Attitude, but it's an Attitude like you've never heard it before.

The Yamaha Billy Sheehan Signature Altitude 3 ships with a hardshell case.
