The Yamaha 2017 BBP35 5-String Electric Bass Guitar offers the very finest in craftsmanship, hardware, and tonality in a heavenly model at a remarkably affordable price. We all know that Yamaha don't do things by halves, but even they have outdone themselves with regard to how exceptional this 5-string is. After four decades of production, honing their skills on the BB series, the result is the supremely playable BB Pro 35.

Master artisan-crafted body

In realising their dream of creating a superior bass guitar, Yamaha tasked master artisans to carry out the work at their headquarters in Japan. Their meticulous approach can be seen across the entire guitar, from the enviable tonality to the commanding resilience of the hardware. The body takes on a redesigned alder/maple/alder multi-laminated body that benefits from Yamaha's proprietary Initial Response Acceleration (IRA) technology. The IRA process uses subtle vibrations to simulate the tone, feel, and resonance of a well-played, broken-in feel and timbre. From the moment you pick it up, it is as if you've been performing with this bass your entire life.

As you'd expect from a BB series model, the body is ergonomically designed with curves in all the right places, allowing it to sit just right whether you're performing in a seated or standing position. The deep double-cutaway body profile means that the entire fingerboard is within easy reach to maximise playing comfort.

Improved neck and joint design

The 2017 BB Pro model necks have been given a reworking from top to bottom. Employing a five-piece construction with maple and mahogany, the neck is fitted to the body using a steadfast 6-bolt mitre design. The transfer of energy from the neck to the body is as seamless as can be to ensure that the subtle nuances of your performances ring out beautifully. The new thinner profile establishes fast playing feel that reduces the effort put on the fretting hand.

Paired with the neck is a luxurious 21-fret rosewood fingerboard, which provides a sumptuous playground for your finger to explore. Bar position inlays guide your way in style.

Versatile tones

Whether you're recording in the studio or hitting the stage, having a tonally versatile instrument makes life so much easier. The Yamaha BBP35 is equipped with a pair of YGD Custom V7 Alnico single-coils that translate the rich timbre of the tonewoods beautifully. Each pickup is equipped with an independent volume pot, as well as a master tone switch. Create your own blend of each pickup, and carve out the tone with ease. The simplicity of this setup belies the wide-ranging tones that can be pulled from the beauty.

Gig-ready hardware

The Yamaha 2017 BBP35 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.
