    A while back I posted I'd be receiving a yammy bb450 from a friend who didn't want it. So here it is....I got it for $300 with case (and some nachos!) :D

    Nice bass. I'm a sucker for old Yamahas.:)
  3. Man, you're lucky. Getting nachos with it. That's a pretty sweet deal. Were the nachos good?

    But seriously, nice bass.

    Reminds me of the first bass I had...it was a Yamaha BB #000 in natural finish...it was a good sounding bass I wish I had it today. I still kinda want one of the new ones...they're pretty sweet with the ol' school style and still sound great!

    I dig the yamaha body shape, and that's a sweet color for it.

    I typically hate the Yamaha look, but that is actually quite nice! Sweet grab. :cool:

    What kind of nachos? White corn or yellow?

    BTW, ice bass.

    I noticed a few minutes ago the inlays, headstock and jazz pickup were different from the current BB414. I don't care about small features like that though, plus the neck on this thing kicks ass, I LOVE IT.

    For those asking, they were quite good nachos! served on tostitos scoops with cheese, salsa and chili powder. :D

    Your what?
  13. They're just great solid basses those Yammys. My first fretless was a Yamaha BB. At the moment, the body is being paint stripped ready for me to re-finish it. This will involve a blowtorch and some woodstain. Wish me luck !!

    Geez, nachos. Bass stores should offer that as an insentive to buy.....
