Penetrating Sound
Yamaha has worked closely with some of the most prolific bassists in the business to craft that unmistakable BB sound— constantly evaluating their ideas and feedback to create the right sound for the music of the moment. The latest series features a miter neck joint that has won praise in the Billy Sheehan Signature/ Attitude Limited III lineup, by increasing the efficiency of vibration transmission to the body for a more resonant, organic feel and tone.

A New Take on a Classic Design
The new lineup has undergone a significant redesign with subtle contour changes and body weight reduction made out of consideration to playability and comfort, while still retaining the classic silhouette of the BB body/ head design. The differences are subtle, but you'll definitely feel them. The new models also feature standard sized pickups for the first time in a BB, for more convenient customization or replacement.

Alder/Maple/Alder Body
The new BB features an Alder/Maple/Alder multi-laminated body construction. The hard maple center increases body stiffness and accentuates midrange to cut through the mix of a band, and allows a more uniform transmission of vibrations between the body and the maple neck for unparalleled resonance and sustain. (BB Pro, BB700 Series).

6-bolt miter neck joint
Miter bolting holds the neck closer and tighter to the body fusing these two separate components into one. Compared to a conventional bolt-on joint, miter bolting offers more efficient transfer of string vibration throughout the body, for improved sustain and outstanding resonance that brings every note to life. (BB Pro, BB700, BB400 Series).

Custom-Wound Pickups
BB's custom-wound pickups fit standard pickup cavities and feature a medium-high output with vintage voicing for great tone in any setting. BB basses come with pickups selected specifically to match the distinct character of each model in the series, delivering a uniquely versatile sound while retaining the classic BB tone.

Convertible Bridge & Saddle
BB basses incorporate 'Diagonal Body Thru Stringing' which significantly reduces stress on the strings while transferring vibration to the body reliably and efficiently. The bridge comes equipped with a convertible saddle that can be adjusted to 2 different angles for more precise tonal shaping and feel.
