Comments about Yamaha BB424X Electric Bass Guitar:

I've played for 25 years and am very realistic in my reviews. One of the best values on any instrument. Flawless construction, killer looks (even looks better in person), smooth neck, excellent playability. Pickups are warmer than, say a Fender Jazz Bass, but have a slight ceramic warmth and crunch to them that is really sweet, and can be controlled by rolling off the volume a bit. The PJ setup is also very versatile. I have no problem spending $3k on an instrument, but this bass can't be beat by ANYTHING for the price. Plays like a bass way above it's price range, outstanding and unbeatable value. If you MUST have a jbass or pbass, or musicman or Rick ...go for it, their wonderful instruments. BUT, this competes with instruments FAR outside it's price tag. completely satisfied and zero buyers remorse.

Awesome

Comments about Yamaha BB424X Electric Bass Guitar:

What can I say, this bass is killer. Not sure why it's not stocked in many music stores. It's a great midrange bass.
What can I say, with the pickup configuration you can make this sound like a P-Bass or J-Bass. You can make it growl or you can ease back on it and give it a fundamental sound. The range of tones you can pull out of this bass is amazing. This thing sustains for days. The pickups pick up everything and are crystal clear.
Feels solid and looks beautiful.
just as good as a P-Bass or a J-Bass; in my opinion, better, because you can get so many different tones out of it. I used to own a J-Bass, and although a Jazz Bass is a pretty solid instruments, you are a little limited when it comes to trying to get that DEEP tone. This Bass is so versatile.
