Yamaha BX-1 + Original Case- Sold


Recommended Posts

This is a beautiful and very rare Yamaha BX-1 headless bass with original fitted hard case. 


I love the way this bass looks, plays and sounds but I have no need for it anymore a I'm playing in classic-style bands and can't afford to have stuff I don't use hanging around. 


The condition is good, although there is some wear on the bridge and at the headstock and a few chips. Frets are in good nick too.  The sound is unreal, deep deep bass, mids and (I guess if you really had to) you could get a good slap tone out of it. 


This is up there with the Roland GR-77B as the ultimate 80s bass. Images below, bass strung with flats, weight it about 3kg.


I will not package this up and post it, and I won't budge on price as I love it. 


£650 grabs it.

I think you can see/hear Nathan East playing one in this clip:



That’s more 80s than I’ve seen in a while, but if it’s good enough for Nathan, it’s good enough for anyone!


Bump for weekend…
