I got this for a run with The Billy Joel Songbook Tour that needed a 5 String. The clutch in my car has gone so unfortunately this needs to go.
These basses can have some pretty ropey factory fretwork so I had my guitar tech replace and level all the frets (An expensive job), it now plays better than any other V7 I've played, its also had an electrical service and a fresh set of Newtones. Its been in a flight case and looked after the whole time Ive had it.
Its a great example of these basses and Ive put a lot into it, but I seldom use a 5 string and needs must.
Based in Liverpool but travel all over. I am happy to ship at buyers expense.
Yamaha BB415 5 String Wine Red - SOLD
Almost as new condition. Couple of very minor marks on the side of the body which I've tried to show on the photos.
Upgraded with a Schaller bridge.
Passive bass with a great tone. Would make an ideal first 5 string or backup bass.
Collection from Sheffield or courier can be arranged at the buyer's expense (estimate £10-15).
