OK, TBers, let's find a good home for this bass!
There's lots of love for these old Yamahas here, but in case you're not familiar with this particular model, it's a neck-through design, with a 5-piece maple and mahogany neck and alder body wings. Pickups are P/J and controls are volume, passive tone, and pickup selector switch. Note the P pickups are in the reversed position you'll also see on Spector basses, which, at least to my ears, beefs up the output from the D and G strings. Neck is P-like, 1.6875" at the nut, with a C profile. 34" scale, 21 frets with oval mother-of-pearl markers. According to the bathroom scale, it's about 9.5-10 lbs.
Sounds great, and I could probably dig up some clips to prove it.
The only imperfections are cosmetic, and those are typical for a pass nearly 30 years old. Photos below give a good idea, and I'll post more over the next day or so to complete the picture. OHSC is included!
Looking for $650 + cost of shipping.
Pictures of the dings, etc., can be found here. Again, it looks great for its age, but I want to be as thorough as possible: https://picasaweb.google.com/1009151...eat=directlink
