Not many musicians can say they're in a band that's changed the course of rock &039;n' roll – but Michael Anthony can. From Van Halen's humble beginnings playing backyard keggers in Pasadena to headlining arenas all over the world, there's hardly a stage Michael hasn't seen. This kind of rock 'n' roll lifestyle requires a rugged rock 'n' roll bass, and the BB3000MA is it!
Based on a through-neck BB design, the BB3000MA features a streamlined neck shape and deeper cutaways. Other custom appointments include a Hipshot D tuner, both J- and split-style pickups, and original chili pepper inlays on the ebony fingerboard.
