BB Bass Series
Our longest-running bass series offers an inspired blend of vintage styling and modern precision that has been embraced as a modern classic by players of every genre. The various BB models cover a wide price range and all supply the discriminating bottom-feeder with a big slab of resonant alder, a super-precise 24-fret rosewood-on-maple neck, first rate fretwork, formidable hardware, and a pair of versatile J-style pickups.
The BBN5A includes the Yamaha 5-control Active System Electronics. Our custom 3- band EQ gives the BB's extensive tonal versatility, and the 3 position Midrange control, with user tweakable settings, facilitates fast and repeatable presets.

Comments about Yamaha bbn5a:
Mine is a 1998 amber burst MIJ, workmanship is faultless, great looking woods. Electronics are responsive and accurate. Bottom B is clean and precise. The instrument is beautifully balanced & the Weight is comfortable for a gig. I recently went hunting for another bass, took mine along for a comparison. It blew everything in the shop away. I am now looking for any discontinued MIJ Yammy I can find. Absolute gold
