Yamaha BB1025, ##SOLD##
£500

Recommended Posts

Yamaha BB1025 five string bass in gloss black for sale. The bass is about two years old and I am the second owner. I bought it from BC'er "thebuckets" (Brian) about three months ago and have been using it professionally at gigs up and down the country with The Christians.

The bass is in fantastic condition, almost as new but for a few barely visible hairline surface scratches/marks/blemishes on the finish here and there. These are inevitable on a gloss black finish and I've tried very hard to photograph them. Purely in the interest of being thorough, I'll try to describe them. The most noticeable areas are on the back, near the neck bolts, a tiny blemish near the pickup selector and the area under the G string at the end of the neck (gloss finish looks a little dull where fingers have rubbed) - Look closely at the pics to see what I mean, but to be honest these issues really are hard to see unless you are holding the bass and looking very closely!

The bass is in complete working order with zero issues. It has never let me down and sounds phenomenal!! The output from the pickups is absolutely monstrous. Typical fantastic quality from Yamaha, an absolute tone beast that cuts through the mix! If you know your Yamahas, you'll know what you're looking at but for those who want to know a little more about this model, go to the following link. It really is worth a read to see what quality goes into these basses:

Includes a high quality Yamaha gig bag, which contains the original case candy, consisting of Yamaha owner's manual, Allen keys and a basic jack lead.

Genuine reason for sale. I am also a cellist and currently raising funds for a new cello, so this has to go. These basses currently sell for around £700 brand new. I paid Brian £500 for it three months ago, so basically after my money back.

Bass is in Liverpool. Pickup in person preferred but I am also prepared to post if buyer pays postage costs (I'll just need a day or two to get packaging materials together) I'll also consider delivering personally if you're not too far away and meeting halfway is also an option. Here are some pics:

Sorry to be the one to ask, but what is the exact weight please?

Hiya. Not really sure how to do this. Getting on the scales while holding the bass brings it out at about 4.6kg, dunno if that sounds about right? I have no other way of measuring the weight, no luggage scales or anything like that...

I sold this to Bobby and saw him play it live with The Christians it sounded a lot better than it ever did in my hands!

Deal with Bobby in full confidence he is a gent and a true BCer as well as an excellent player.

This is a pro quality 5er for a snip. I don't think you can buy them new now as they have been discontinued. I guess it is because they are so close to the £2K 2000 series. (same pups, spline body etc) sure i had the weight at 4.1-4.2kg using the bathroom scales method. regardless its very well balanced and never felt too heavy playing for long periods to me and I'm only a little fella!

I love mine, I have a 1024x and a 1025x. Love the neck in the 1025's, just great quality all around. Also, these have been subject to price hikes recently, so these are £740+ new at the moment. So makes this even better value. GLWTS!

Will now include postage in the price, so £500 delivered, or £500 picked up, whichever is easier.

Have a bump. I have an identical one and love it. Great deep tones and powerful passive pu's.

Nice one fella. Yep, sometimes people even ask if it's active, same happens with my BB2000. Hats off to Yamaha for great basses ;-)
