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.
The solid brass bridge captures and transmits string vibration directly to the body, creating great low-end tone and attack.
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.

Selling my 2014 Fender American Special Precision in Sunburst with rosewood fretboard.
This run of specials went from 2011 to 2015.
Here is a link to a review by Roger Newell: https://www.musicradar.com/reviews/guitars/fender-american-special-precision-bass-448255
I took this in a trade but unfortunately it's a bit heavier than I can cope with at 9lb. It's not heavy for a P but I have health issues so it must move on.
Its in very good condition. There is a shallow ding on the back of the headstock which so far I have not been able to photograph but if the rain holds off I'll get outside this evening and try again.
I did have Hipshot Ultralite tuners fitted for a while but I have put it back to stock. The extra tiny hole that is needed for the Hipshots is completely covered by the original tuners.
The American Specials have a regular modern P nut width, but the neck is a bit less chunky than the American Standard.
It's currently strung with a nicely settled set of Thomastik TI flats with a medium action. It's a brilliant sounding bass that I have been using in a Big Band playing swing and big band jazz. It does the Duck Dunn thing very well, and of course can go all rocky with roundwounds too.
Also comes with a Kinsman hardcase that is in pretty good condition. If you don't want the case I can knock £25 off.
£725 collected from Northants, or I might be able to meet you somewhere if it's not too far.
I'm not looking for trades unless you have something under 8lb. Cannot be even an ounce over. If there is a trade I will be bringing my scales!
More photos to come when I can get outside

Selling my Fender 60s Jazz Bass (Olympic White, Rosewood Neck). It's a great sounding bass with an authentic road worn look and in overall great condition! My collection is getting out of hand.. therefore i'm selling.
Classic Fender Jazz bass with timeless design elements. Off-set waist body, ultra-slim, fast-action neck and full-range Bi-Pole pickups. Many of the period-correct details that made the original Jazz basses so cool are spot-on replicated in this classic vintage-vibe beauty - especially the original offset waist, ultra-slim neck, and pair of vintage-style Alnico magnet Jazz Bass single-coil pickups.
One small dink on the neck (see pics) which doesn't effect playability. I removed the pick guard (I like the look without), which you can have with the bass.
Based in NW London, happy to ship UK wide for extra cash.
