    Ok, here it goes... :crying:

    This is a mint mid 80's Yamaha BB300 bass made in taiwan (but dont let the country fool you) it started out as a project bass b/c the build quality in regards to the neck, ash body and overall condition was excellent, these are very solid basses and a great foundation to build from! So I decided to hot rod it with over $450 in upgrades. which include:

    Schaller black/tuners
    Hipshot-Xtender
    Seymour Duncan Quater Pound P-bass p/u
    Badass II bridge
    CTS pots and upgraded quality jack input (the OE stuff was not the best)
    Professional fret dress and set-up (which really gives this bass low even action with no buzz)

    Asking $400 plus shipping, I know you can find these basses for less then 200 bucks on the bay, but this was not only done up the right way, but it blows the doors off the new BB series and MIM fenders or even some MIA fender P basses. And it sounds just as "BAD" as it looks! Ive just made the move to 5 string in the past year and this bass just sits in the closet, so I need to let it go...

    The avatar cab is for sale in amp/cab forum

    Aside from the Hipshot and Badass, this is my exact same bass. This is a great bass. I have gone into the studio with this bass and Fenders and higher end stuff and the Yamaha is what engineers want me to use over and over again. You want to cut through the mix and shake the floor, you will not find a better bass than this.
     
  6. That was my very first bass... Bought it new back in the 80's. Wish I still had it

    If I wasn't poor, I'd consider this, for sentimental reasons. Alas, I'm currently a poor bastid!!!
