The Yamaha BB1024X is out of the same stable as the custom shop, no-holds-barred Super-BB. The BB1024X Features the same spline-jointed 3-piece body construction, designed to sound the same as a single piece of wood, and a new 5-ply maple/nato laminated neck. The BB1024 has the Super-BB's custom wound pickups, developed by Yamaha's Hollywood custom shop, with a warm, rich alnico split coil and powerful, punchy ceramic blade pickup, feature on BB1024 as does the new Vintage Plus bridge, with its stainless steel baseplate and brass saddles for the perfect combination of brightness and sustain. Super-BB's revolutionary 45-degree Mitre Stringing, for improved string tension, tone and stability is fitted as standard and BB1024's hardware package is rounded off with pro-spec chrome hardware, 3 new finishes and a fitted gigbag supplied as standard.
BB1024 is also available with the new BB scratchplate (as the 'X' version) and in a 5-string configuration as BB1025.
The BB bass has long been the bass of choice for some of the world's best know players including Nathan East, Michael Anthony, Marco Mendoza, Glenn Hughes, Geezer Butler and Duff McKagan, the Yamaha BB is known for incredible sound, great playability and classic, vintage inspired looks. When the Super-BB launched in 2009 the bar was raised, with Yamaha launching a bass designed for today's pro rock players – a no compromise passive, bolt-on bass designed to meet the needs of the most demanding rock bass players on the planet.
For 2010, Yamaha is launching a new range of BB basses boasting exclusive features developed for the Super-BB, making the ultimate passive rock bass accessible to every bassist.
