YAMAHA BB434 4 STRING BASS GUITAR
This Yamaha BB434 features a solid Alder body with a gloss Black finish. The new BB 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. The New BB Models feature a slightly thinner neck than previous BB basses, improving playability and feel for both modern and traditional players. Lighter weight tuners offer a better balance and complement the overall feel, providing a perfect match for the smaller, lighter body of the new BB.
6-bolt Miter Neck Joint, Custom Pickups, Vintage Plus Light Bridge, Five-piece Neck
The BB 434 is from the 400 series which offers some seriously clever design features. A 6-Bolt Miter Neck Joint holds the neck closer and tighter to the body fusing these two separate components into one. Miter bolting offers more efficient transfer of string vibration throughout the body, for improved sustain and outstanding resonance that brings every note to life.
Alnico magnet YGD Custom V5 Pickups are tuned to deliver the classic BB vintage tone, slightly updated to provide a brighter sound that cuts through in live performance situations. The two pickups offer up a huge range of tones making the BB434 suitable for any style of music.
The 400 models are equipped with a Vintage Plus Light bridge that incorporates “Diagonal Body Thru Stringing”. This brilliant new design feature means the strings pass through the instrument to the bridge at a 45º angle, as opposed to the traditional vertical stringing method which places more stress on the strings. Diagonal Body Thru Stringing significantly reduces this stress while transferring string vibration to the body reliably and efficiently. The strings can also be attached to the tail end of the bridge.
The new series features a 5-ply maple and mahogany laminated neck, in a bolt-on design that delivers a sharp attack, and quick response. This durable construction resists warping and twisting and adds the tight, penetrating character of maple combined with the warmth of mahogany to the instrument’s tone. The New BB models feature a slightly thinner neck than previous BB basses, improving playability and feel for both modern and traditional players. Lighter weight tuners offer a better balance and complement the overall feel, providing a perfect match for the smaller, lighter body of the new BB.
The Yamaha BB434 Black is an outstanding professional instrument that is ready for the stage or studio.
