    I've got a Yamaha BB605 that has an OBP-3 preamp in it. I picked it up on a trade here, cleaned it up a little bit, and it has left the house as my backup once. I've probably actually only played it twice. It's a pretty solid guitar for the money, I just don't play it and could use the cash for an AR15 build.

    The headstock has some dings on the end, and the finish on the body has some swirling going on, but overall it's in pretty good shape. I've had it in an old beat up Kramer hard case, that I will include. I really don't know what these things go for... I'd love to get $400 shipped, but I certainly entertain offers.

    I'll get some pictures up ASAP.

    Thanks for looking!

    These are great little basses. I played one for years. Mine had Bart pups and a ding In the headstock a lot like this one...

    Are those the stock pups?

    Would you consider a four string USA Millennium in a trade?

    They are the stock pups. I had actually planned on dropping Barts in it when I got it, but ended up just not playing it like I thought I would.

    As for the Millennium, I'll have to pass. Thanks though!

    This is great sounding bass. It was mine. If I had the cash, I'd buy it back.

    Can you advise on the weight? Nut width? I have small hands, and yamaha necks tend to be on the wide side.

    I can't remember the width off the top of my head, but it is pretty wide. I'll get the weight and measurement when I get home from work tonight and post it up.

    Thanks! I had a Yamaha bb-5000 years ago that was like a water ski.

    Sorry y'all. Turned into a week of car problems that kept me in the garage almost every night this week. Here's some more info.

    And the verdict of the crappy bathroom scale is 9lbs.

    Those were solid basses, and that's a great price. From a fellow gunner, good luck with that AR build :)

    Very solid basses. I played one for years. Very tempted by this.

    What does the mini toggle do with the Aguilar pre in there?

    There are two mini toggles. One is active/passive, the other is a mid frequency selector.
     
  18. Is this still up for sale?
