    This is a Yamaha Superbass 500 neck on a Yamaha BB350F body. A great pairing.
    A slim profile on the neck. Maple fretboards are rare on older Yamaha basses.
    The P pickups are from a BB1200
    The J pickup is a Basslines classic stack so no noise.

    Very very nice sounding. Passive PJ with 3 way toggle. Very balanced.

    $375 shipped conus
    Will also consider trade/partial trade for lightweight heads or cabs of 500 watts and above (Genz Benz, Aguilar, Epifani, GK..)

    Thanks. it's a nice bass with a fantastic neck that I had shaved down to be more Lakland like. It also has a true oil finish on the back of the neck.

    That's one sweet looking bass. One Q: I thought the BB350's had 2 j pickups?

    The BB350F was a fretless PJ bass from the 80's and the BB350 was a fretted J bass from the 90's

    Is the color original to the BB350F body?

    No, it was only offered in black and red. This one used to be Black. I rounded the body some and had TBer StreetScenes do the paint job. You can check out some of his work here on TB.

    It looks very cool. Much nicer than black or red.

    Very true. I really love the yellowing of the maple fretboard due to the age of the neck (1980)

    Thanks guys. The neck alone is worth the asking price. It's smooth, thin from front to back and super fast with a true oil finish on the back.
    I'll drop the price again just to make it even more desirable.
