Divorce-is-imminent sale: Yamaha BB200 Bass upgraded w/ DiMarzio pickup
As some of you know, my wife of almost 9 years (relationship of almost 13 years) and I are on the outs. I won't get into it here, there's already a thread I started a few days ago where many TB members chimed in with sound advice. The good news is, my wife doesn't want anything of mine, and we've been on good (as good as possible) terms. She makes more money than me, and I hope to be able to keep MOST of my gear, but the low-hanging fruit will be the first to go.
I bought this early 90s Yamaha BB200 from Bobby King with the intent on turning it into a double reverse-P bass ala Lee Sklar. That ended up getting too pricey so I instead planned to donate it to a school of rock for mostly-underprivileged kids. Then this relationship sh*tstorm started, and I realized I need all the money I can get. So here it is. I hope to keep my other more-expensive basses, but we'll see how everything shakes out.
Black, alder body, maple neck/ rosewood fingerboard, w/DiMarzio DP127 Split P pickup (original pickup also included but you will need to add lead wires) 8.6 lbs. Regular play wear from a 20 year old instrument but overall in good condition.
The older Yamaha BB series basses are really good instruments at a bargain price. Essentially a Precision bass, but higher quality than a lot of MIM and Squier basses, in my opinion. I believe the neck is about 1.625" wide at the nut, which my big hands appreciate. It seems to have fairly new strings and the setup feels pretty good.
I need $200 + shipping to recover what I spent and I'll throw in a cheap Musician's Friend gig bag as well. Open to other offers, but absolutely no trades.
Thanks for looking!
