Hey guys, I haven't been around in a few months. I decided to take a break from the bass completely, but now I'm getting the itch to atleast get another bass to have around for when the urge strikes. I've been thinking about getting a Yamaha BB414. Judging from reviews on here and Harmony Central, it looks like a great bass for the money that I can have around for when the mood hits, but also have something that has a playability, tone and build quality that won't make me want to upgrade any time soon should I start playing more. I just have a few questions I couldn't find answers to in threads. What is the neck heel like? Is it contoured in anyway or is it square? Does anyone have pics of the back of their BB414? How does the neck pickup solo'd compare to the classic P-Bass tone? Also, has anyone tried flats on a BB414? I'm looking for old school thump, but also versatility which I should get from the pup config. Finally, does Yamaha make a case or atleast a gig bag that fits this bass or can I get one that does? Unfortunately my only local music store just sold a BB414 so I never got a chance to try it out first and they usually won't order anything just so you can try it (especially this bass, the owner said he couldn't wait to get rid of it. He just didn't like the larger body style. Big deal..that's one of the things I like about it) Thankfully MF has a 45 day return should I not care for it.
