Reissue of the original BB's from the 80's. Made in Japan. These might be the best 100% passive basses that we've heard lately, and what's more, they don't try to sound like Fender. Top grade woods, nickel silver nut and frets. Through the body stringing but with a new 45º method for optimum tension. Use Yamaha's propietary special wood treatment process that recreate the behaviour of vintage basses.
