Yamaha SB-5A SB-7A 'Samurai Flying Banana" Bass 1967 Sunburst image

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.


For your consideration is a nice vintage Yamaha from the 1960's! This is NOT a reissue. This is an original Nippon Gakki Company, Made in Japan bass that was dubbed the 'Samurai'! Hardshell Case is and original Yamaha case. Electronics work and this bass sounds good. It has buckle rash and honest play wear up and down the neck. Not a collector's piece as this one was actually gigged and has played in venues up and down California during the 60's and 70's. You will want to set it up to your specific playing style but once dial in...the tone and the looks ooze out of this bass like no other!
