    The BB line was introduced by Yamaha around 1978 or so with the BB1000.

    The 2000 and 3000 as I recall came out about 1982 or 83.

    I have a catalog at home showing them along with the 1000, 1100 and 1500 (I think) that came stapled into an issue of Guitar Player. I'd have to go look at it for more info.

    From memory, the 1000 was a bolt-on, like an updated P-bass some of the other models were neck-through and/or had preamps.
