A great bass from the Yamaha custom shop in Japan, bought new from Yamaha Music London in Soho in 2017.
You can hear me playing it live here:
In the video I had the bass set on the neck pick up just like a P Bass.
I have mainly used it in P Bass mode and it is great for Motown and Soul and Disco music and sits perfectly in the mix.
The added benefit of switching between pick ups creates a variety of different sounds and the tone dial has a lot of depth to it depending on how much you roll on or off. For example, you can get a great Jaco sound from the bridge pick up and then a quick change to sounding like Jamerson on the neck pick up. It's like having two basses in one. Or you can have a great Jazz Bass sound with plenty of bite and punch on both pick ups.
It is in great condition and comes with a Yamaha case and certificate. Come and check it out.

YAMAHA TRB-5P from the 23rd of August 1995. This model was discontinued in 1996.
Would prefer selling it, but trades are always welcome, especially for a fretless bass : 4, 6 or 8 (no octave strings) strings unlined are my preferences.
Simply the best P/J fiver on the market with the extra piezos that you can really use, way far better than my previous BB2025X and to date the best TRB I've ever owned. The Yamaha TRB-5P is still the main bass used by Abraham LABORIEL, there must be a reason...

I'm only selling this terrific P/J fiver because I really have problems with odd numbers basses. I know... My loss is your gain.
The bass has been fully set up professionally by Christophe LEDUC. It has a new battery and has been fitted with a brand new set of Newtone Diamond Stainless Steel Hex Core strings (42 - 60 - 75 - 96 - 120), which fit the bass to perfection.
This fantastic Yamaha will also come with a brand new spare Newtone Diamond Stainless Steel Hex Core strings set (42 - 60 - 75 - 96 - 120), with two high C's, just in case.
What you see is what you get !
Look at the pictures taken under different angles in natural light to see the real condition and the real colour : some knocks, dings and dongs due to its age (almost 25 years), but nothing serious. It has been professionally refretted by a previous owner. The ouput jack has been changed from a barrel one to a Telecaster type, which is much more convenient.
Don't hesitate to ask for more.

Yamaha BB P34 Bass – Manufactured in September 2017
Price reduced to £850
For sale is my BB P34 bass, manufactured in September 2017. I acquired the bass in December 2019. I had heard good things about these basses and I can confirm that they are all true! This is a very reluctant sale to be honest but the opportunity has arisen to acquire a bass that I have been after for quite a while and, sadly, I will need to sell a couple of basses to fund the purchase.
The neck is nice and straight and very easy to play on, currently set with a pretty low action. The instrument is in extremely good condition as I have tried to show in the pictures (apologies for the reflections, but it is very shiny and has been well looked after).
The bass weighs in at just over 9lbs according to my bathroom scale and is currently strung with steel round-wound strings. It comes with a very robust Yamaha hardcase and all the case candy.
It is a very nicely balanced instrument both on lap and strap making it very comfortable to play. The neck is fantastic, and very comfortable to move around on.
If you have any questions at all, or require additional pictures of any details please ask away and I give as comprehensive an answer as I am able.
I would prefer to arrange some kind of delivery/collection/meet up if at all possible. I'm pretty flexible and willing to travel a bit if necessary. Courier would be the last resort and will be at cost to you.

Up for sale is my "Tobacco burst" Yamaha BB1024 and gig bag.
These are excellent "all round" instruments-typical Yamaha rock solid build quality with a "spline joint" Alder body ,a choice of thru-body diagonal stringing,"Vintage Plus" bridge and a five-piece maple and nato neck.
Sonically these basses can do pretty much anything from Jaco back-pickup jazz to fat P-bass dub, and anything in between.
The output from the custom designed pickups is full range and VERY wide-almost an "active" sound from the alnico and ceramic blade setup.These are "big" sounding basses!
I'm letting this one go as I already have a 1024X I gig with, and this is way too good a bass to be sat as a backup.
The bass will be supplied with a generic gig bag.
Thanks for looking 😀
