    Price drop!
    Lowest I can go.... $275!

    Trust me guys, this is a steal!

    [​IMG]Got this in a trade here on TB and have used it as my workhorse, after some serious upgrades, for the last year
    This is a very versatile bass with a very nice, comfortable neck
    Here is the original thread b4 upgrades:
    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/fs-yamaha-bbg5-946452/
    Bass had a Seymore Duncan blackout 2 band active preamp installed when I got her
    Upon the bass arrival dimarzio ultra pickups were professionally installed as well as an active/passive/passive with treble boost switch.
    Gold hardware reinstalled with a gold washer to hide to previous owners over-route

    Not really looking for trades but u can run stuff by me if u want. U never know...

    Bass will ship with Yamaha hard case

    These are great, sleeper basses. Play great, sound great, look great. I had one - it's the bass where I realized that 19 mm spacing is not for me, but even so, I was sad to see her go.

    The neck is designed well on these... Even at full spacing, it's very comfortable for the left hand
     
  10. Man what a deal if I hadn't just bought a five string I'd be hopping all over this excellent!
