Manchester


Recommended Posts

Fought hard to buy this - and I might be totally stupid/wrong/laughable for my mindset.

It’s a mega rare 1985 Japanese Yamaha BB1300.

Neck Through…

2 x Twin J pickups…

Volume/Tone Per pickup…push/pull for coils and a pickup Selector.

It’s “racing blue” - sort of half lake placid blue, half lilac - it’s fit.

There’s a guy in Canada begging me to sell it him “name your price stuff” - but I know it caught the attention of a few basschatters.

it’s a special bass, and really amazing flexibility in a passive bass.

does a Jaydee esque sound, a J, a passable p, and if you use bridge in humbucker and neck in single, approximates a stingray…and a p/j ish when single bridge/neck hum.

But, I keep on going back to my P/J yamaha Bb’s.

Time to admit defeat. Passive P/J forever.

Will entertain trades, partial trades for Bb424x in red metallic…

Would sell if someone wanted it and didn’t have a trade option - but…

I would like for like swaps on a 

bb3000 (passive - I DO NOT WANT A 3000A) red metallic. May consider wine red.

bb2024mx (maple board - as rare as bb1300)

bb1600 gun metal blue preferably, maybe Natural - with cash my way (amount depending on condition).

bb2024x - with cash my way (amount depending on condition). Not really sure on this idea…

 

I’d hoped to bond with it…but it’s just a thought process which is gathering speed.

legitimately had a dream where I swapped it for a 2024mx the other night - so weird.

Volume and tone (push/pull) we’re like for like replaced when the push/pull originals failed. Originals included in sale if you’re into repairing pots…🧐

fresh d’addario 40-100 on it. Can swap for 45-105 I have spare, which have been played a couple of hours.

Spotted Tiny hairline crack in bridge pickup casing near the E string - on the edge - invisible up until resting your head on the bass - only spotted this yesterday.

some small marks on the bass - but unbelievable for its age.

Really like it but then I play my jazz and have zero gigs on the horizon 🙄

Well. I’ve listened back to the middle Section of the night where I used it…

May hold off until Vanderklay arrives - the Ashdown cab I rented was way off the mark - weird as I’ve enjoyed using it previously.

That’s lovely and nicely unusual. 

Thanks - it really is - would love it to find a new home, especially now a 1600 has appeared for sale.

That is such a stunning looking BB. With a new build P bass incoming I'm almost tempted to ask if a BBPH may interest you....

I'm a sucker for neck through Yamahas (I've owned many) and that looks absolutely lovely.

It would tempt me - but I would only sell it…

Have a think on it, the BBPH’s seem hot property at the moment and you’d do well out of selling it!

Its been in the case since last use - it’s so special, I don’t want it in the stand.

£1150 (so about£1200 posted).

That make it any more tempting for folks?

Happy to listen to offers in that region.

Deffo still interested in another 424x if anyone has one in red particularly.
