OVERVIEW

Upgraded tone and versatility for the working bassist.

The BB for the working pro, the BB700 series features a versatile active/passive pickup configuration with a three-band EQ, six-bolt miter neck joint, Alder/Maple/Alder construction, and a diagonally strung convertible bridge.

The new BB features an Alder/Maple/Alder multi-laminated body construction. The hard maple center increases body stiffness and accentuates midrange to cut through the mix of a band, and allows a more uniform transmission of vibrations between the body and the maple neck for unparalleled resonance and sustain. Includes gig bag.

  • 5-piece Neck
  • YGD Custom V7 Pickups (AlnicoV)
