Billy Sheehan’s legendary attitude is reborn in a hand-crafted bass with powerful electronics.

And with Billy’s involvement every step of the way, playability is like no other guitar. It’s clearly an Attitude, but it’s an Attitude like you’ve never heard it before. Case sold separately.

          Comments about Yamaha Billy Sheehan Signature Attitude 3 Electric Bass Guitar:

          Bought one of these basses after searching high and low for used Attitudes and always wanted to play one. Finally found a III online at GC used. It was basically brand new out of the box. Once I received it I was totally blown away. I have Fender P and J basses and am very familiar witht the P neck, my first bass and have it for over 25 years. The ABIII neck is so comfortable and the action is amazing. The playability blows all of my Fenders away and I hate to admit that because I still love playing them but this bass just raises the bar.
          Construction is top notch. The neck through construction is solid and the body is solid but very light.

          Hardware is excellent and the recessed bridge just adds to the low action and sustain. Harmonics are bright and clear, there's no fret buzz and the bass plays very fast. Comes with a set of BS strings which I really like. I'm not sure if it's the strings themselves or the neck profile but bending is quite easy to do everywhere on the fretboard and not just where the neck is scalloped. Which brings me to that section.... just a great feature that adds to new inspiring riffs and soloing ideas. I would never try or do that on my other basses as it was just such an effort to bend and not buzz or be difficult to do but the scalloped frets make it a breeze.

          Fiinally, the tone. The EBO-esque neck pickup really keeps a nice low end thump and they are very complimentary to the P pups.

          I would recommend this bass to anyone that was thinking about a high end "players" bass. This thing is meant to played and played hard.

          This bass is simply the best playing and sounding bass I have ever played if you don't mind a signature bass and a thick neck u will love this bass if your style of bass playing is more solid then u may not want this for the cost but if your a burner on the neck then u want this bass trust me
