The Yamaha BB mega-thread

Recommended Posts

I always use this but if it doesn’t darken enough I mix it 50/50% with raw linseed oil if the board is really light.

When you say "another 4 string BB" does that mean you've got already got a couple in your herd? If so, what have you got (obligatory pics required, of course!)?

Yes of course, late 80s BB300 (not entirely sure of the exact year) and a 1979 BB1200.  The BB1200 specifically is why I'm pretty hesitant about getting a BBPH.  (Sorry for the slightly blurry photo, my cheap phone's camera isn't that great).

On the font the Gig bag it has a small pocket at the top. And a large pocket at the bottom inside it’s black fur it also has a Velcro neck strap.

Identical to the ones that came with my 1024x and 1025x. Didn't have any issues with dimensions. Both fit well and are decent bags.

Interesting that a number of folk don't seem to have any issues with the dimensions of the gig bag - maybe it's just me and @dannybuoy who found them a little tight. I'll get a picture done with mine in later: my recollection is that it was very "snug" i.e. the top of the head was pushing against the fabric and there was no space in between i.e. another 1cm at the top would be perfect just to provide a little more cushion.

No dispute that it's otherwise a very nice gig bag. And obviously the hard cases for the NE2 and P34/5s are also very nice indeed, although heavy!

I agree the bag is a little bit snug at the top but it does the job. Personally mine will probably never get used I have a Mono Vertigo gig bag that I use all the time.

I wish I'd never let my Mono bag go when I sold a bass and it needed a bag. Proper protection....

There you go, memory not what it was. Yes I'd given up playing and transporting my bass. You're right :D

Thankfully now enjoying my playing again and playing with other peeps occasionally.

So the new Yammy PH is not a coincidence then - and a great way to celebrate picking up where you left off! 😊
