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 😀
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.

The bass is in good condition, technically tiptop, with usual optical used tracks (on the back of the body) and on the top plate smaller things, which I captured in the photos as best as possible.
