For sale is my fantastic Yamaha BB435 in Teal. Bought late September last year, it hasn't exactly had a hard life, and has performed astonishingly well.
I've had loads of Yamahas over the years, so I knew to expect a great quality instrument, but even so this exceeded my expectations! Superb quality, and the design is fantastic, blending all your favourite traditional features with clever modern refinements.
Stand out points for me are the neck shape /feel - it's extremely comfortable and playable, and the pickups which are absolutely outstanding. In fact, there is virtually no difference between these V5 pickups and the V7's in the top of the range BBP. Really superb tone, plenty of guts but nice, smooth organic tone.
It's in great condition as you can hopefully see from the photos. If you have any questions or want any other photos, just get in touch.
Payment via PayPal or BACS, and either socially distanced collection or a courier can be arranged.
Many thanks for looking! 😊👍
Bought as a back-up bass for gigging but after buying it, I proceeded to break up with the band... typical! The bass has since been in its case, so it’s time for it to go to a new loving home! I have 4 basses in total at the moment.. 4 too many I’m told sometimes! But with my other basses P and a J, I never actually ended up gigging this BB or practicing with it for that matter.
Overall, its in good condition with some signs of wear (dings, chips and bumps) around the jack, some marks on the head stock (see photos) and a few light scratches on the back of the upper horn.
Great punchy BB tone and currently strung with fairly new D’Addario strings (105-45).
This bass is also nice and light @ 9lb 3oz / 4.16 kg
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.

The tone and response is extremely direct and resonant. The playability very comfortable.
