Modern 5-string Version of the Iconic Yamaha BB Bass

This BB435 5-string electric bass guitar puts all the legendary BB bass attributes into a clear-sounding passive design that offers the punch and rumble that can only be found in a low B string. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned player, you’ll love the neck’s thinner profile and the way the bass stays balanced thanks to its lightweight tuning machines. And modern appointments such as the sustain-enhancing 6-bolt miter neck joint and convertible bridge ensure you get the absolute most from your bass. If you want a modern and affordable take on the BB bass, the BB435 5-string is for you.

The BB bass legacy

When the first Yamaha BB basses rolled off the line in the late ’70s, the bass world quickly took notice. A diverse array of high-caliber players took to these unique instruments, such as Van Halen’s Michael Anthony, No Doubt’s Tony Kanal, and legendary session ace Abraham Laboriel Sr. Their comfortably contoured bodies, clear-as-a-bell electronics, and immediately identifiable look keep these basses at the forefront of many different genres. The Yamaha BB435 is among the latest additions to this storied line of lauded instruments.

Familiar construction with modern twists

What truly sets Yamaha’s BB basses apart from other basses are their comfortable and familiar contours. Carefully crafted from balanced-sounding alder, the BB435 5-string boasts that same identifiable character. Its rounded edges and forearm and belly cuts seem to melt into your body while playing. The bass’s 5-piece maple and mahogany bolt-on neck sings with a new level of punch and sustain, thanks to its 6-bolt miter design. And its slightly thinner profile is a welcome addition to a more modern style of players.

Flexible and easy-to-use electronics

Whether you’re a session player or a specialist, you know the benefits of a P/J pickup combination. The pickups in this BB435 5-string are Yamaha’s present-sounding YGD Custom V5 Alnico V single-coil design. Dial in more of the neck pickup for that all-important P-style growl. And nail punchy fingerstyle tones with the bridge pickup. The BB435’s passive volume/volume/tone control layout couldn’t be easier to dial in.
