  2. nice looking bass, nice price, seems like a deal to me. yamaha basses have a tendancy of being high quality for the price

    I used to have that bass. For that kind of money, the BB1000MA is a steal! Awesome bass. I would've still bought the bass if it was $900. It sounded and played so good and its worksmanship was top notch. Most people who have tried the bass say that the bass plays much better than its expensive brother, the BB3000MA. I have the same sentiments.
     
  5. Don't you love it when a lower end model actually winds up sounding better? :D

    if there are 2 basses that are just about exactly the same...only difference is neckthru vs. bolt on. My experience is the bolt on winds up sounding better. Not every single time, but in at least a majority of the cases I've seen.

    Odd. Just an observation.

    Same here.
     
  7. That's a killer deal. Sam Ash has these unannounced deals every once in a while, but not as often as Musiciansfriend. My advice if you're interested in that particular bass would be to jump on it. I've seen crazy deals like that disappear from one hour to the next.

    DAMN IT!
    I got some serious GAS for this bass (BB1000MA) about 2 weeks ago. I was fickle for about 2 days while Sam Ash sold out of them, I was bummed for a week then I got over it. Today I was jonesing again for the bass but everywhere that still has this bass has only the green. Well for grins I clicked the link at the top of the thread and miraculously there is one left at SamAsh when two weeks ago they where totaly out (I even called). I quickly claimed it with the 15 mos. no interest financing. Now I just need to explain it to the significant other. Luckily I got the go ahead 2 weeks ago and hopefully that go ahead transfers to now. I guess Basses get lonely and I have been down to just one bass since early December.

    I was lucky enough to become the owner of one of these not too long ago and I am seriously in love with it. I almost had a slight falling out with bass after a messy break up with my band but after putting my hands on this, I have a new perspective on playing in general and I havent been able to go a day without playing it. Awesome

    What color is your bass? It turns out I was again too late at S(c)am Ash, I got the dreaded your item is not available post purchase email (double damn it!) anyway I might get the green. Do you have some pictures?
    Thanks

    SamAsh had them for 299. American Musical has them in Metallic Green for 299. The red inlays where a stretch for conservative me so am really not sure about metallic green, at least it isn't pink.
