This is the best Attitude ever. Billy Sheehan and Yamaha have made an effort to improve an already great bass and they have achieved it using Yamaha's own A.R.E. and I.R.A. wood treatment techniques. The neck is now fixed to the body in an improved manner. The pickups are also better than ever. You get a really raw and pure rock bass with the added benefit of the woofer pickup. You can use it in stereo driving two different amps, or use it in mono and mix both pickups to your taste. Classic Attitude specs like the scalloped neck and Hipshot D-Tuner are still here. This is an ex-demo bass that has been used by Yamaha artists in a couple of trade shows and has as few minor dings, hence the huge discount.
