    Here's description official description. :)

    Yamaha BBNE2 LTD PWT

    The Yamaha BBNE2 LTD PWT is the 5-string signature bass guitar of the legendary Nathan East and is limited to 50 pieces worldwide. East, who has toured with established musicians like Clapton, Collins and Fourplay used only one bass guitar, despite the different music styles (blues, pop, modern jazz): the Yamaha BBNE2 LTD PWT. This proves the tonal diversity of the Yamaha BBNE2 LTD PWT. Since its bridge consists of single - an thus independent of each other - pieces, interferences of the strings are reduced to an absolute minimum, creating a perfect, clean sound. The active electronics of the Yamaha BBNE2 LTD PWT is based on Nathan East's "Magic Box", which means you may lower the mids frequency range by pushing a button, thus giving the sound more precision. The 5-piece neck stabilizes the Yamaha BBNE2 LTD PWT to a maximum.

    I bought this baby new when it first came out and been used it for some gigs and home uses only. I think pictures will speak for itself, but there's a tiny weeny chip on the head stock that you can barely notice, and some swirling.. and that's about it... other than Nathan's autograph that's faded away a little bit from playing...

    I love this bass' feel and tone... But I'm not playing bass as much as I used to anymore and it's been sitting in its case... so I wanna give this up to a person who will actually treat her very nicely(?) :hyper::hyper:

    I can't find case candies other than the case and a strap with stitched Nathan's autograph... but I will include other candies as I will go dig when sold :)

    As stated above, it's one of the fifty BBNE 2 made in this color WORLD WIDE. I've seen this baby go for over $4000 new.. but I will let her go for $3000 obo.(Being a collector's piece, I bet the price will only go up in time) Shipped insured. I can do international shipping as well but it will be on your dime.

    Well.. enough of talking and here goes some pics :)

    Wow! That baby is a beauty!! I really like the color too. I just saw Nathan play that model backing up Anita Baker on Jimmy Kimmel Live (you can find it easily on youtube). What is that, like a silver/gray? If I had the dough, I'd buy this one. Or if I could sell my 2 Yamahas (TRB II 5, and a BBNE East model), I could justify getting this one. Where do you live?

    Thanks,

    It's called pewter. :) It's just amazing bass with great tone and versatility. And one thing that I was amazed about this baby was that no matter what amp that I plug her into, she retains her fundamental tone superbly.

    Sweet bass!!! East is a monster bassist. If these basses are good enough for him they are good enough for anyone.

    This bass has been haunting my dreams!!! LOL Wish I had the change to grab this beauty. Yamaha gets a bit of a bad rap because they make everything but I was just telling a friend the other day their Japanese made basses and guitars are super high quality and some of the best out there.
