BB1024X has employed a 3-piece body structure with which its bridge is placed on the center piece in order to translate the maximum amount of string vibration to the body. Instead of simply gluing wood pieces, we insert a Maple plate, called "Spline", into a slot on its joint sections. By doing that, Yamaha has succeeded in obtaining as much body vibration as 1-piece body with this 3-piece body structure.
Diagonal Body Thru Stringing
In Diagonal Body Thru Stringing, strings are angled 45 degreed at the saddle to reduce the stress and secure their tension. Moreover, because the attachment area of strings to saddles is larger than conventional vertical stringing, much better transmission of vibration is obtained.
Both front and rear pickups are specially invented for this particular series. Pursuing ultimate passive sound, "Open Face Pickups" are used to cope with even aggressive picking of rock players.
These necks consist of Maple and Nato. It provides durability and prevents necks from warping and curling.
Nickel Silver Nut
Nickel Silver is selected for nut. It is the same material with fret wires. Unlike conventional bone or artificial ivory nut, it gives the same sound quality and feeling even when open notes are played. For any bass players it is a crucial part of well-defined low end.

Comments about Yamaha bb1024x_vintage_white:
This is am amazing bass...I am so pleased with this purchase. Everything just feels right, and I have played just about every bass from not only major luthiers, but the smaller guys...this bass is on par with the best! The Alnico V Split Coil/Ceramic Single Blade pickups really help this bass cut through. You don't have to worry about being lost in the mix, or on stage with this bass. Your sound will be present!
Thanks Yamaha for crafting a killer bass! This bass will be with me for a long time!
