  1. I bought this bass earlier this year to go alongside the other BB’s on my music room wall. However, following the arrival of my new bass the credit card company still want paying (fascists) so I need to generate some cash by selling the BB’s, my BB234 & BB425 have already gone. 😢 Up next is my BB614, purchased earlier this year from Basschat's very own BB aficionado, Andy Travis. Its in great condition and plays really well. The only thing to note (see pictures) is there are some very light dark stains on the back of the neck. Clearly it doesn't effect the tone of the bass, but wanted to point it out. It also comes with a functional Soft Ritter Gig bag. Weight is approx 3.9 kg (on bathroom scales) Happy to answer any questions, or to provide more pic's if required. I can also drive up to 50 miles to deliver if preferred.

  2. Hi, I haven't got an accurate weight. The yamaha centre in london say its 4kgs. Cheers.
  3. Yamaha BB234 - £150 plus shipping, or welcome to collect (or give it a noodle) from Diss in Norfolk. I’m not looking for any trades at the moment, just a straight sale. I bought this bass earlier this year to go alongside the other BB’s on my music room wall. However, following the arrival of my new bass the credit card company want paying (fascists) so I need to generate some cash by selling the BB’s. It will come with the original strap buttons, not the ones shown in the photo. Happy to answer any questions, or provide more photo’s Overview The BB 234’s body is crafted from lightweight alder to produce a smooth, deep bass tone with a beefy midrange and a slightly sizzling high end. Its strong, full-bodied sound works well when paired with the brightness of a maple neck, adding plenty of depth and dynamics to the overall tone. The maple neck is coupled with a rosewood fingerboard, adding complexity to the high end and providing a smooth playing experience. The neck also features an incredibly thin profile, improving its playability and feel to suit modern and traditional players. Versatile Custom V3 Pickups The Yamaha BB 234 is equipped with a set of powerful custom V3 pickups, with a split single-coil at the neck and a bar single-coil at the bridge. This configuration is perfect for players who enjoy playing a wide range of musical styles, while the ceramic magnets ensure the bass delivers a clear, well-defined sound. The custom V3 pickups offer a beautiful, full-bodied tonality, with an excellent articulation that adds to playing dynamics. A single tone control and 2 volume controls provide versatile tone shaping, allowing players to dial in the perfect sound for their playing. High-Quality Hardware Yamaha’s BB Bass Guitar is finished with a range of high-quality appointments, delivering excellent sound, feel, and playability. A set of lightweight tuners provide better balance than standard tuners, complementing the overall feel of the bass while its open-gear design adds to the Yamaha’s aesthetics. A 4-bolt plate holds the neck to the body, providing extra cut to the overall tone, while the urea nut helps improve string stability. The vintage style bridge also adds to the stunning look of the BB 234, providing the bass with its classic look. Specifications Body: Alder Neck: Maple (Satin Finish) Neck Joint: Standard 4-Bolt Fingerboard: Rosewood Scale: 863,6 mm Nut: Urea Nut Width: 40mm Tuner: Light Weight Open Gear Chrome Bridge: Vintage Type Pickguard: 1-Ply Pickup: YAMAHA 1x Split SC, 1x SC Controls: 2 x Volume, 1 x Master Tone Colour: Natural Satin
  4. Yamaha BB425 - £180 plus shipping, or welcome to collect (or give it a noodle) from Diss in Norfolk. I’m not looking for any trades at the moment, just a straight sale. I bought this bass earlier this year to go alongside the other BB’s on my music room wall. However, following the arrival of my new bass the credit card company want paying (fascists) so I need to generate some cash by selling the BB’s. Overall it’s in good condition, however there are a couple of scratches close to the rear strap button (see photos) Happy to answer any questions, or provide more photo’s Yamaha say (well they would) The Yamaha BB425, 5-String bass guitar is an excellent entry-level instrument for up and coming Rock bassists, you want a little more from their bass guitar. Overview Alder Body & Rosewood Fingerboard The BB425’s body is constructed from alder, a highly popular choice of wood for bass production, producing a deep, smooth tone whilst remaining lightweight and highly durable. The rosewood fingerboard has a 10" radius and features 21 frets with classic white oval inlays, creating a beautiful aesthetic and smooth playing surface. The 5-piece maple/nato neck provides a combination of bright, sweet tonal characteristics, adding plenty of complexity to the highs and thickening up the low end. Bar/Split Single-Coil Pickups The BB425 features two powerful pickups, with a bar single-coil pickup at the bridge and a split Single-coil pickup in the middle. These premium-quality pickups deliver a full-bodied sound, offering excellent articulation while remaining dominant in its tone. This is ideal for a range of playing styles from deep, ringing bass tones to fast and aggressive slap bass riffs. Diagonal Body Thru Stringing & Neck One of the most unique design aspects of the BB425 is the diagonal body thru stringing. This work by angling the string at 45 degrees at the saddle, reducing stress and securing the tensions of the strings. The larger than normal attachment area to the saddle helps for improved transmission of vibration, resulting in a fuller and more articulate sound. The 5-piece bolt-on neck is constructed from 5-pieces of maple and nato for maximum durability and style. This design helps to prevent the neck from warping or curling over long periods of time. Specifications Construction: Bolt-On Scale Length: 34” (863.6mm) Fingerboard: Rosewood Radius 123 5/8” (600mm) Frets: 21 Body: Alder Neck: Maple/Nato (or Mahogany) 5pcs Nut: Urea Bridge: Vintage Style Pickups: Front – Split Single, Rear – Single Blade Controls: Master Volume, Master Tone
  5. Yep, will be putting them on over the weekend. Suspect it will be sunday as mrs has already managed my expectations with her ever increasing jobs list for the weekend!
  6. Yes mate, that 1100 is one of the ones to go on sale this weekend.
  7. Here you go, lighting is pretty crap, but best I can do until we get some day light.
  8. I've been wondering why I've been feeling so warm today.....suspect there is a doll somewhere being held over a flame. So 234 natural 425 sparkly red 614 ex Mr Travis 1100s ex Mr Travis To be honest, I wanted a BB wall at home for the music room, so got a few in different colours, however Mr Overwater needs to be paid, so needs must. I can feel the heat being turned up now! 🔥🔥🔥🥵
  9. I'm just about to sell all my bb's (none have a case) and this would have worked a dream!
  10. I had a go, it went for about £136 ish n the end. I needed a nice orange BB to complete my Yamaha wall, so didn't want to go too mad as I'm never going to play it. I think someone got a bargain.
  11. I've bought 3 basses off Andy over the past 6 months, if that doesn't say enough about Andy, then I guess nothing will. He's a pleasure to deal with, nothing is too much trouble. If only he'd sell me his orange bb. Neil.
  12. Glad you didn't damage my next bass.
  13. And a 743a has just appeared as well. Currently sitting on my hands and taken the batteries out of my keyboard...must not buy...must not buy...
