The nine new Yamaha BB series basses offer better playability in smaller guitar bodies.

The new models feature an Alder/Maple/Alder construction that puts maple at the center of the body for quicker sound transmission from the strings. The 6-bolt miter neck joint improves stability and increases the efficiency of vibration transmission to the bass’ body for a more resonant feel and tone, and the custom-wound pickups help to achieve higher output gain.

The new models also feature standard sized pickups for more convenient customization or replacement, a first for the BB series. Other small modifications to the series include contour changes and body weight reduction.
