What we say:

At A Glance:

This Yamaha BB434BL Bass in Black is part of Yamaha's iconic BB line. The BB bass was first unveiled as an affordable alternative to American made guitars, without any signs of compromise to tone or quality. This no-nonsense approach saw Billy Sheehan and Peter Hook as early adopters of the BB, both legendary bass players with contrasting styles, which is a testament to the BB's versatility.

This new BB features a tasteful retro aesthetic and combines an alder body, maple neck and a J-bass pickup configuration to offer a versatile selection of usable tones, making it a great choice for everything from Jazz to Metal.

Features We Love:

Alder Body

Alder is loved for its lightweight and bright sound. This works especially well for larger bass guitar bodies as it gives them a detailed tone with a tight low end and great note definition without the guitar feeling too cumbersome during long playing sessions.

Single Coil Pickups

The ceramic J-Bass inspired single-coil pickup configuration is a timeless classic. With the placement of neck split-pickup capturing the fat low end without sounding woolly and the bridge pickup capturing the high-end definition, it's easy to blend between the two to dial in the exact sound you're looking for.

Six-Bolt Miter Neck Joint

Yamaha's six-bolt miter joint gives the neck the strongest possible connection to the body of the guitar. With 4 standard screws to join the neck to the body and 2 additional screws set at an angle to anchor the neck in, the joint is not only incredibly secure, but it also drives the vibrations from the neck to the body and vice versa to create incredible tone and sustain.

Highlights:

  • Cool vintage looks
  • Great tones suitable for a wide range of styles
