GORGEOUS YAMAHA BB G5a BASS
THUMPS LIKE A CHAMP, WITH LOOKS THAT MAKE YOUR **** SHAKE!!
Yamaha BBG5a in Amber Burst
MADE in July of 1996/for to market 1997
This bass is one of the BB (Broad Bass) series for those who wanted a hi-quality 5-string at a good price. This is an instrument that has been out of production for almost 20 years. Yet this actual Bass looks and plays like its brand new.
An alder body, rosewood fingerboard, and maple neck and despite these “classic” woods it is very light and very comfortable. The pickups are Yamaha branded with active electronics and quality 3 band EQs far beyond expectations.
It is a truly versatile instrument and, in spite of its more expensive big brothers, it is by no means “lost in the mix” but it comes out well in the overall sound, with a powerful but non-invasive fifth string. You can easily play from funk (very valid also for slappatori thanks to the rather wide string at 1.8 mm.) To blues passing through jazz and heavy metal.
