I have a yamaha BBG5S bass for sale. I bought this on Friday from the local music store, and have found a bass that is more my style (my old MIA Dlx. Jazz V). So while this is a great bass, I just don't see myself giving it the long-term attention that it deserves. So let me tell you a bit about it: It is a Yamaha BBG5S in sunburst. I don't know the actual term for the color, but it's a lot like a 3-tone fender sunburst, but with a more red tint instead of brown. It ends in black though. It has active electronics, an alder body, gold hardware, a wide neck, 24 frets. It's an awesome bass. and it's in great condition except for 3 things: the hardware is starting to oxidize a little bit, there is a 1mm "ding" above the bridge, and there is a small scratch in the clear-coat (maybe an inch long, invisible unless in the right light). Other than that the bass is in great shape. I'm going to sell this for $275 shipped. I don't have a case for it, but will pack accordingly. This is a phenominal bass for the price. If you're considering going to a 5-string, or if you just want to check one out, this is for you. Anyway, PM or Email me. I like paypal and money orders. -Matt P.S. I have soundclips of the bass too. I can email them. Also: I'll go and buy a gig bag to ship it in, if you pay for it. Say, $15 extra for that option. So $290 shipped in a new gig bag.
