The Yamaha 2017 BB734A Electric Bass Guitar offers an exceptionally versatile tonal arsenal to play with thanks to the interchangeable active/passive design. Whatever style of music you play, the BB734A allows you to slot into any musical setup with ease. Since their introduction in the late '70s, Yamaha's BB line of basses have been the go-to instruments for many professionals. The latest additions to the stable goes to show that they just keep getting better and better.

Sleek three-piece body

The BB734A body is built using three-piece alder/maple/alder, which allows the body to produce a delicately balanced timbre with a biting attack and masses of warmth. As with other BB series' basses, the body is shaped with contours and curves in all the right places, making it one of the most comfortable instruments you are ever likely to encounter. Resting snugly against your body whether played in a seated or a standing position, you can rest assured that every performance is a free-spirited affair.

Fast-playing thinner neck

Fitted to the body is a solid five-piece maple and mahogany neck, which delivers notes with a sweet punchiness thanks to the 6-bolt mitre design. The improved thinner neck profile makes it much easier to switch between traditional and modern playing styles. Paired with the neck is a 21-fret rosewood fingerboard, which provides a luxurious playing surface for your fingers to explore. Thanks to the deep double-cutaway body profile, the highest frets are within easy reach.

Active/passive setup

Whether you're recording in the studio or hitting the stage, having a tonally versatile instrument makes life so much easier. The Yamaha BB734A is equipped with a pair of YGD Custom V7 Alnico single-coils that translate the rich timbre of the tonewoods beautifully. On top of this, there is a built-in active 3-band EQ with blend dial to sculpt your output with incredible precision. The active/passive switch enables you to chop and change between a beefier or flatter response. On the back of the bass you'll find a battery indicator, but should you find yourself without a battery, the passive setting can get you through any gig or session in style.

Gig-ready hardware

The Yamaha 2017 BB734A Electric Bass Guitar offers superb build quality and durability, making it a great model for session players and gigging professionals. The headstock is home to lightweight tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity dutifully whilst also improving balance across the bass. The vintage-style bridge anchors strings securely to optimises intonation and sustain throughout the most energetic of performances.
