For more than 20 years, the Yamaha BB Series basses have been the workhorse for great bass players like Nathan East, tony Kanal, Michael Anthony, and Lee Sklar. Through the years, these players have relied on Yamaha's BB Basses to deliver that deep, warm thump that has become the hallmark Yamaha bass soud.
Now Yamaha has reinvented the bass that started it all. The new BB Series basses boast all the classic characteristics of the original BBs, from the distinctive big body design and bolt-on neck to the vintage-style hardware and soapbar and split-coil pickups. With the addition of state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, the new BB Series is destined to become an instant classic.
The BB414 and BB415 feature a beefy alder body with a bolt-on maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. Electronics include a ceramic soapbar-style bridge pickup, a split coil neck pickup, a toggle selector switch and speed knobs for master volume and master tone. The BB614 and BB615 upgrades to an active 3-band EQ, a pickup balancer, and chrome controls.
