Yamaha BB1200

 

Selling a bit (of my) history here 

I bought this bass in the 1980’s and have had it ever since

It’s a thru neck BB1200 Made in Japan in 1978 with serial number 001666. 

In natural with a beautiful ebony board with pearl inlays. Completely original with original case, unfitted clear Perspex pickguard and tool kit complete apart from truss rod adjuster.

I take care of all my basses and this is in excellent condition

There’s plenty of life left in the frets and the bass weighs 10lb 7ozs using digital scales on a solid flat tiled floor

The bass plays amazingly well with a low action and every note rings out true and clear with the sustain that only thru necks give

The construction is top quality in every way – the attention to detail is incredible, from the wiring to the soldering, how the pick ups are high adjusted and shielded, the quality of the bridge which even has a solid block of brass under it for sustain! I rate this bass very highly.

Postage at buyers risk and cost - I am happy to pack and arrange

I have masses of photos so if you need more let me know 

For sale only

Thanks for looking

I am in love with this bass.
I owned one, same natural finish, and only sold it because I found a BB1200s in excellent condition. I should have kept it with the flatwounds on for a change.

These are superb instruments.
