The Yamaha 2017 BB735A 5-String Electric Bass Guitar is superior instrument at an affordable price, which offers a joyful playing experience unlike any other. With a wide ranging tonal arsenal to play with, sumptuous finishes to choose from, and a reliable build quality that is classic Yamaha, the BB735A is sure to become your next favourite thing.

Sleek three-piece body

The BB735A body features an alder/maple/alder multi-laminated body, which is designed to increase stiffness and resilience during performances. The superbly focused midrange enables the bass to stand up well in an ensemble, cutting through the mix with precision. However, it is more than able to pull its weight as a solo instrument, with unparalleled resonance and sustain giving it a nice and weighty timbre.

As one would expect from a BB series' bass, the body has curves and contours in all the right places. Whether you're playing in a seated or a standing position, the body rests snugly against yours for an effortlessly comfortable playing experience.

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. Making the transition from a 4-string model to a 5-string has never felt as natural as this.

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 BB735A 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 BB735A 5-String 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.
