Delivery, Warranty & Returns Information

Description

An excellent entry-level five-string for up-and-coming rock bassists! Applying the advancements in knowledge, technology, and skills Yamaha has gained since launching the BB Series over 30 years ago, their bass design team has reinvented a legend with the new BB425 five-string electric bass guitar. The new BB425 delivers exceptional tone and resonance using a no-compromise passive, bolt-on design that raises the bar for quality and performance. Exclusive features deliver powerful, rich tone, excellent attack and sustain, immense volume, and overwhelming presence. The BB425's diagonal body-thru stringing angles the strings 45 deg at the saddle to reduce stress, secure their tension, and improve the transmission of the strings' vibrations. With a solid alder body, custom-wound pickups, and gig-ready hardware, the BB425 is a truly affordable bass designed for today's rock players.

Features

  • BB Pickups - The ceramic magnet type pickup used at the front position delivers a powerful bass tone that is clear and distinct. The bar-type pickup used at the rear is designed to deliver double the volume of conventional bar type pickups. Its high power output produces a clear tone.
  • BB Body - While the body is inherited from Yamaha's original BB, the neck is positioned 5mm deeper into the BB425 body creating a more rigid design that improves sound and attack.
