Hi all

Selling this is I don't really play it that much and am mainly using a Jazz Bass these days.

This, however, is still a great bass from the Yamaha custom shop in Japan. I have mainly used it in P Bass mode and it is killer for Motown and Soul and Disco stuff. 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 model.

I bought it from Yamaha in Soho last year. It is in great condition and comes with a Yamaha case. Come and check it out.

Thanks

I have been playing a heavy Stingray for a while, so anything is light compared to that.

This bass is very well balanced and doesn't feel heavy.

Thanks

      Reluctantly up for sale is my ‘62 RI CIJ Fender Jazz - superb jazz tones & Very good condition apart from some buckle rash scratches on the back - i bought this bass NEW in 2005 & it was my main gigging bass for many years - just doesn’t get played anymore & deserves to!! Moving house & need to free up some space-It’s not too heavy - approx 9lbs ( bathroom scales) sounds & plays great - can include cheap gig bag free or proper fender padded gig bag for a little extra. The Aguilar 4j HC pickups alone now retail for over £200!!!-Collection preferred - thanks for looking - ps I would gladly share some of the mileage if meeting somewhere en route (within reason) to be discussed

      Sale price £1550 collected. 
      Trade Value £1750. Will consider trades for a Rickenbacker 4003s, Musicman 4 or 5 string (the only active basses I'm interested in) and cash my way. But then What have you got?
       
      The Attitude is the result of continued collaboration between bass legend Billy Sheehan and Yamaha Artist Services Hollywood.
       
      Providing the low-end for some of the biggest names in rock including Mr Big, David Lee Roth and Steve Vai, Billy demands extreme performance from his basses and the Attitude delivers on every level thanks to custom-spec construction, hardware and electronics. Billy' trademark sound owes much to his choice of pickups, and the Attitude's Dimarzio Will Powers don't disappoint. The neck woofer pickup - with a high-cut facility - is known for its ultra-deep character and superb definition while the middle pickup is a split-coil P-style packed with tremendous punch and midrange power. For extra versatility the pickups are wired to separate outputs, allowing the choice between combining the two sounds or - as Billy does himself - amplifying them separately. This is one of a limited run of 50 making it a very rare instrument.
       
      In Billy's Own Words: Key Construction Features of the Yamaha Attitude Bass
      For Me, There are quite a few important things about this bass, but the joint between the neck and the body would have to be the most important. On the old bass I had before I started using Yamahas the neck would move sideways when you bent it. However in the Attitude bass, there are two screws on both the front and the back of the joint, so there is no movement at all. It's the strongest joint I know of. I sometimes bend it very strongly but it never breaks. It is just fundamentally different to the neck joints of other basses.
       
      Then there is this "hipshot" D-tuner. A lot of people who play four string basses want to be able to play lower notes than conventional four string can provide, but don't want to use a five or six string bass. The D-tuner means that you can get to those lower notes. Of course different players use different tunings, but I like to use it in D. The other thing is this big, thick neck. Many people think that the material of the body is what gives you sustain, but actually, the neck is more important. You can't get a sustain like this from a small, thin neck. This neck is what gives me my solid sound.
      Pickups and Electronics
      Both front and rear pickups are custom made by DiMarzio and deliver powerfully heavy bass tone with a solid fundamental. Stereo output jacks provide separate outputs for the front and rear pickups. Mono output is also possible. A high cut switch in the front pickups tone control boosts bass output from the front pickup.
      Bridge
      The solid brass bridge captures and transmits string vibration directly to the body, creating great low-end tone and attack.
      Neck
      A big, thick neck features jumbo frets from frets 1-16 to produce outstanding sustain. The neck is held to the bass body with 4 screws to create a solid bond and tone. The neck also features scallops from frets 17 through 21 and a slap cut ground into the neck that provides greater string access.
      Hipshot "D" Tuner
      The Hipshot tuner drops the "E" string down a whole step to "D" with the flick of a lever. A gear adjustment provides precision tuning.

      For sale is my stunning red / orange burst Yamaha TRB 5 string bass. It's not one of the Japan built models, (Korea, I think?)
      It really is a lovely player, great quality and has a superb Glockenklang 3 band pre-amp fitted. The price reflects the lovely condition & upgraded Pre-amp, and is actually slightly less than I paid for it, but needs must...... The pre-amp sounds absolutely immense (check them out online!) and would set you back £130 & P+P, plus fitting. It was pro fitted by Dave Dearnaley, for the previous owner (who is also a BC member)

      I need to downsize my collection, I'm not playing 5 string much these days, so reluctantly this has to go. It sounds absolutely superb (if a little modern for my tastes) and has a great range of tones and sounds. It's X-long scale (35") and the B string is wonderfully fat sounding.
      It's in great condition, though there are a few minor surface marks here & there - no chips, cracks or splits in the surface though. It weighs 4.5 Kg - so certainly no boat anchor.
      No trades please, unless you have a 5 string Wingbass.

      I'd rather not post (and I'd much prefer you tried it and were happy) I'm prepared to meet somewhere though, and have a battery amp and amp-headphones so you can hear the bass. I can let you have a nice, well-padded gigbag to take it away in.
