Yamaha BB1500A - SOLD!

Recommended Posts


Great workhorse basses, these. Details below:










Weight: 9.7 lbs / 4.4 kg on the bathroom scales

Scale: 34” 

Bridge: 19mm 

21 frets 

Nut: 1 11/16” 

Radius: 10”

Body: Alder 

Neck: Maple 

Fingerboard: Rosewood

Bolt-on neck 

Hardware: Gold

Pickups: 2 alnico single coil (stacked hum cancelling)

Electronics: volume, blend, 3 band EQ (+/- treble / bass and two mids presets - the mid control is a 3-way rotary selector switch to select between flat and the two presets) 

Mother of Pearl and Abalone inlays, gloss finish

It's a really nice active super-jazz. Without the offset body. An example of this model demo'd very expertly here: 

...by the redoubtable Jeff Andrews (RIP); and this actual bass demo'd significantly less effectively here, by me: 


Happy to answer any questions here on the thread or by PM.

Shipping: obvs better for you to come and try out here in Elephant & Castle (I'll provide some socially-distanced biscuits and a cuppa), but if that's not possible, I can ship to you via your choice of courier at your additional expense, or, if it's reasonable, deliver to you in my car for a contribution to the fuel money, whichever is cheaper for you.

Trades: thank you, no. 

Many thanks for checking out the ad!

I have one. Underrated? Absolutely. Build quality, TRB electronics, the neck, the clarity of tone for 350 quid. Condition looks good as well.

Aaaaaand sold. Sorry about the suspense for some of you(!) - payment took rather a long time to reach me, despite being organised very promptly by the buyer. International bank transfer via IBAN/BIC number...anyone else had a crazy long wait for payment to arrive? The buyer was advised it would be processed in 24 hrs!

      Got a pal looking for a Yamaha BB1100s for the last couple of weeks and there are none available.  Are people not selling?  Are they becoming more rare?  Are there other models that are scarce at present???

      I bought this bass off a great user on this forum at the start of lockdown and I'm not finding myself having the time to play it anymore now things have calmed a little so id prefer it went to a better home where it was used !
      It doesn't come with a bag or stand but I'm happy to include my brand new copy of https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hal-Leonard-Bass-Method-Complete/dp/0793563836/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=learn+bass+guitar+book&qid=1609181646&sr=8-4 if it goes to a new player.
      I'm based in Abingdon but I'm happy to meet in the surrounding areas
      Original Post can be found here ! 
      As per the original post there are a few nicks but other than that its in fantastic condition and sounds great !

      For sale only: Yamaha TRB II 5 string.

      35" scale for a mighty B string, and an active B/M/T pre with volume/blend. Purchased from Brother Jones of this parish but now need to make space for impending house move...
      43mm nut
      4.6 kg
      19mm spacing at bridge 
      Cosmetically as per photos, one small dent on front shown.
      Fully working order and a lovely player.
      All controls work well, although the centre detentes don't 'bite' as much as they maybe should. But the pots hold their position and I've never had a problem.
      Comes with gig bag, of which the pocket zip doesn't work but the main bag zip does.
      Will ship for free in UK by Parcelforce 48
