Early '80s Yamaha BB2000 bass, case, extra string sets
This bass is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-09-11)
Price : US $580.00
This is the classic Yamaha BB2000 as used by players like Tony Kanal of No Doubt and Michael Anthony. It's stock except for replacement tuners. The finish is in very good condition with some mostly superficial dings, and the action feels good on the slightly chunky neck. The PJ-style pickup setup gives a range of tones from warm and fat to aggressively growly. This bass is a bit on the heavy side, but it sounds and looks great and is way fun to play.
Specs as I know them:
Volume & tone controls, 3-way pickup selector
1 P-style pickup, 1 blade bridge pickup, both passive
Stock metal bridge, two screws per saddle
Hipshot Ultralight tuners, 20:1 ratio
Thru-body 5-piece neck
Rosewood (I think) fingerboard, medium frets
The strings are 'experienced' RotoSounds. As a bonus I'm including an assortment of unused roundwound long-scale strings, plus the original hardshell case.
