Very good condition with a few small dings near strap button nearest to the bridge which I have photographed.
Fitted with a new set of DR Neons strings and Yamaha gig bag is included.
Truss rod works fine and it plays beautifully thanks to a low action.
Bass Direct are selling this model new for £745 so a significant saving here.
Can post if required, expected cost £30 but will confirm with buyer.
Thanks for looking and any questions please ask.
BB 734A is a Alder/Maple/Alder constructed Bass Guitar from Yamaha, featuring a hard maple centre to both increase stiffness and to accentuate the mid-range. The neck is slightly thinner than previous BB models, to help improve playability and is made up of beautiful 5-ply maple and mahogany. Onboard the guitar features two YGD Custom V7 pickups and you can completely shape your tone using the V7's 3 band EQ, pickup balancer and the active/passive switch. The unit's "Diagonal Body Thru Stringing" helps to reduce stress by transferring string vibration to the guitars body.

I'm looking to replace/upgrade the pickups in my 1981 Ibanez Roadster RS940 Fretless and I'm finding the choice of cream/ivory pickups out there pretty sparse (regardless of the current COVID -related supply problems).
Currently, the bass has the pickups from when I bought it, second-hand for about £90 from Allbang & Strummit on Earlham Street (now there's a blast from the past!) in London in about 1988.
The previous owner had already replaced the original ivory bridge pickup with a black EMG, which sounded great. But now its crackly electronics need a bit of TLC so I figured I would improve the sound and look (I've lived with the quirky one-black one-white combination for long enough) with some new cream/ivory, active, exposed-pole PJs, as the original Ibanez Super 4 PJ seem impossible to find.
But the choice out there seems to be EMG with no exposed poles, or DiMarzio, which aren't active. Lightning rods are black only. And Lindy Fralin are a bit on the pricy side.
I'm starting to thing that I may have to compromise on the exposed poles and go with Ivory EMG PJs. (Rather than PJ-X which I've heard don't have the slightly more low-fi growl.)
Anybody know of any other options?
Set of PJ pickups liberated from a Fernandez PJR 45 bass. Bass is from the mid 80s and pickups look original, but no idea on the brand that got fitted to these basses.
J pickup has a cover but sorry can't find the P covers.
Price includes UK postage. Might be a good addition to a project or bitsa bass.
I bought this new last year. It's only been used a handful of times because I'm playing bass a lot less now. Beautiful natural finish and solid tone with a nice bit of growl typical of Lakland basses.
Collection is preferred, but I can ship at extra cost.
Feel free to message me with any questions. See below for the official blurb.
The 44-64 is modelled after the venerable workhorse '64 P bass. One custom-wound Lakland pickup provides a bruising punch and drive that nails the vintage split humbucker tone, sending it through the roof with full voicing and modern energy. The body and 34" scale maple neck have an excellent balance.

In perfect working order and plays well (of course set up to your preference!)
Has been gigged but well looked after - I have tried to take photos of every noticeable scratch / minor dent to show you the condition as best as possible. As you can see most of the scratches don’t appear unless under direct light or when using a flash thanks to the dark brown finish. See the bridge specifically which I had to use flash to show.
Bass comes with gig bag shown which is sturdier than most!
Will be double boxed in the gig bag and shipped via parcel force and insured.
Bass is currently fitted with a newish (a month or so) set of MarkBass LongEvo 045-130 coated bass strings.
Any questions please let me know.
