What we say:

At A Glance:

ThisYamaha BB734A Bass in a tasteful Trans Matte Black finish 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.

*9 Volt battery not included.

Features We Love:


The guitar's body is made from a combination of maple and alder, with the maple sandwiched in the middle to create a rich resonant tone with a tight low end and detailed mids and highs.

YGD Custom V7 Pickups

The Custom V7 pickups have been tailored to fit perfectly with the Alder/Maple/Alder body to give the guitar an organic tone that sounds huge yet refined. The guitar also includes a 3-band EQ and an Active/Passive switch to offer the maximum amount of sonic potential.

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.


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

Everything I wanted from a bass. Fantastic quality, playability and sound

My first proper bass. It’s a beauty! And sounds awesome. Easiest to play from a few instruments I tried. Fantastic quality and finish too
