  2. if you like the wine red, then get a bb604, it says it comes in wine red also, plus it has more knobs!
  3. I like the 604 but the 404 does have humbuckers. Tis a toughey. I'd say try them both out and get what you like the most!

    Follow your heart. You will learn from every time you do so. Regret every time you did not.

  5. The 604 also has active electronics. That's something to think about.

    i dont know the wine red on the 604 is different and ugly

    none of the local stores around here sell yamaha basses :( so i think im gonna end up going to to Sims and just seein what they got, only problem there expensive :(
  7. As for construction, they are both fantastic for the price. The only difference is BB404 is passive and BB604 is active. I've tried both and the passive one really impressed me but the pre-amp in the BB604 felt a bit shallow/thin. I'd recommend getting the BB404 and you'll have the option of putting in your own active circuit.

    Oh BTW, they are all built in Taiwan now and not Japan anymore.
