NBD - Yamaha BB 714 BS highly mod

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by mulambo, Feb 10, 2016.

  1. Just got this beauty, could not resist...
    it is a BB 714, with a different neck, with a flamed maple scale, the P pickup was replaced by a Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound, and the body was painted in blue (daphne?)
    it has an amazing sound with the P pickup, and a very solid and dark sound with both pickups. I feel the neck pickup is more effective then the one on the Attitude bass.
    It seems the original owner made an Attitude tribute with a BB bass. what do you think? i loved it!!

    interesting. Yamaha doesn’t have a lot of maple board bb basses. And that one has nice figuring too.

    Hi Mulambo,

    like this BB beauty quite a lot. Mind if I ask you if you still have it and if you're contemplating selling it soon?

    Looking forward for your respond!

    Hi Mulambo!

    thanks for your respond. Well, it doesn't matter in which part of the world we do live. I'm interested in this bass anyway. Could you please describe its condition? I'd like to get more pictures of it as well :) Thanks!

  13. Well, Moonraker, i can´t send the bass overseas, things are quite complicated in Brazil. Where are you from? Anyway, the bass is in mint condition, except the neck, that is subtly bented. I have to take it to a lutihier, but the bass now is borrowed to a friend of mine, so i can´t take new pics in this moment.
