The Yamaha BB series basses were designed with rockers in mind. Delivering high resonance sound, rock solid hardware and unique build methods that all add up to make this a highly popular bass played by the likes of James Lomenzo, Glen Hughes, Tony Kanal and Duff McKagan.
The Yamaha BB424 Bass Guitar is crafted from Alder, a very popular wood for bass production owing to it's fundamental ability to produce a smooth, deep tone whilst remaining lightweight and comfortable to play. The alder body is then treated using Yamaha's exclusive A.R.E. seasoning process. This delivers an incredibly smooth and mature sound whilst enhancing the natural resonance of the body.
The BB424 Bass Guitar features a neck composed with plies of mahogany and maple. The combination of these 2 woods delivers silky smooth tone and bright highs. This combination of woods also ensures that the neck BB424 Bass Guitar doesn't warp over time.
The combination of a split single-coil bass in the middle position and a single bar pickup in the bridge position means that you can capture full-bodied sound that can also be controlled carefully. Smooth, driving bass right through to hard hitting, punchy slap bass lines can all be easily achieved with the BB424.
Going the extra mile
The BB424 Bass employs a diagonal body thru stringing method to reduce stress and ensure a consistent optimum tension. This allows for much better transmission of vibration so that you get a perfect tone.
