Lovely vintage Yamaha BB1000 in natural finish:

This bass dates from 1978 according to the serial number. 

Of course this '78 BB looks great with its natural finish and black pickguard. It has a nice (presumably) macassar ebony fretboard and classy inlays. 

This bass plays and sounds just great. It has a fat neck profile which will not be anyone's taste, though it's lovely if you like it. 

In its 40 years of existence, this BB has been well used. There are a lot of user marks to be found. It has some fretwear, but the neck can be played with low action. Technically the bass is all fine, the neck is straight and well adjustable. As you can see from the pictures, the screw on the E tuner is not original. It's now fitted with rotosound rounds. 

The original hardcase is included in the sale. 

I bought this bass not too long ago from another BC member, as a bit of an impulsive purchase because it looks so damn fine. This really is a great bass, but I do not actually need it. Besides that, I just purchased a bass that I was really looking out for. 

I'm looking to get back what I spent on this bass: €675

The bass is located in the Netherlands. I am happy to ship within Europe/UK at buyers risk and expense. 

No trades, thanks.

Lovely bass, wish I had the cash spare but got 3 basses on the way already 😅

Maybe someone from the Yamaha thread will drop by and take it

Didn't expect to see this back on here so soon! 

Have to say that this and your Ibanez Musician that's also for sale are fabulous instruments; you have excellent taste IMO!

Thanks people!

And thanks Silver´. The Yamaha was not meant to go already. But I got a response for my Gibson G3 search earlier than I expected.....I couldnt refuse that one. My bank account is a little hungry now, so something has to shift. There is little actual interest in the Musician, so I am trying to sell the Yam now. To be honest I dont think I will miss it as I still have a precision special and a Squier Bullet for my P-like needs😊  I actually didnt need this BB in the first place, but GAS forced me to purchase it. The Musician might be withdrawn if this one sells, and the Yam might be withdrawn if the Musician sells. 

Cheers

The bass can also be purchased without the case which will reduce the price a little and gives a possibility of cheaper shipping.

It would be a great shame to split up this classic bass and it's case. Besides, you're proposing to ship it internationally without a hard case? That way madness lies.

Some people don't care for that. If someone doesn't care for it, it's possible. Though it wouldn't be necessarily my choice. 

Most of the basses I've sold and shipped didn't have any case. I remove the neck for shipping then for solid packing. It's about 2/3 cheaper in shippingcosts.

I owned this one, and sold it only because I have another fine BB from the same era.
They deserve their reputation, and the lightish weight of this one can be an advantage for many players.

This is an excellent bass, and @SurroundedByManatees has fixed the little flaws I had not noticed when I had it (he did find a missing bit meant to lift one pickup upwards that was left underneath the pickguard !)
