    Hi Guys,
    I need to sell my Yamaha BBN5A, its a great sounding bass.

    NEW LOWER PRICE 700 shipped!!!!

    This bass is now discontinued.... its similar to the Nathan East Sig.
    Semi figured maple top
    Yamaha PUPs / Adjustable internal EQ (see pic)
    Rosewood board w/MOP blocks

    The bass has just been setup and I put a new set of MTD Mediums on it as well. Comes in a beat up but very functional hardshell case.

    Paypal preferred (other ways of payment considerd)
    Thanks
    - Tom

    It is a great bass! I have owned one for years and I always come back to it when I want a comfortable and reliable 5 string. It may not be a "boutique" bass but there is somethng to be said for solid construction and very versitile (tone) electronics. Someone needs to pick this one up!

    bump for a great bass..........

    I just wanted to give this bass one last look on behalf of Tom. We discussed a sale, and while it didn't pan out I can testify to the quality, playability, and sound that this bass offers. I used one on several high-cost studio "master" sessions a few years back, and was stunned at the above qualities - it was certainly the first "plug and play"-quality bass I'd recorded with, and the final sound was beyond anything I'd ever gotten previously. Although other items are above it on the "needed gear" list currently which is why I can't spring for it now, I still plan on keeping my eyes open in the future for one.

    This is an amazing price for this bass (they typically go a good deal higher on "the 'Bay) and it deserves to have a better home in a TBer's rig than some hack "over there." :smug: It also got a very good review in BP's "Ultimate 5-String Shootout" in the late 90's. Someone grab this, please. :help:
