    Yamaha BB1025X. It came...it finally came. Best neck I have ever played. I can't say enough good things about this beast.

    Well Done ! I am "researching" that Bass too ! Is there a thumb rest? Reason for asking is that my BB414 has "designated" the front pickup for that by "ribbing" the pick-up's housing.

    The bridge pickup has that "ribbing" you were talking about and I go finger style I usually put my thumb there. However, for some reason I feel a bit more comfortable resting on on the split pick up. Both work for me though.

    Thank you for replying, as I could not see that detail on the internet photos. Please warn me if you spot a good deal on those BB's?

    My pleasure! If you're looking for the 1000 series I don't think you can find any deals because no one seems to actually have them in stock. All the chains seem to either have the 2000's or the 400's. I had to get mine from a licensed Yamaha eBay vendor.

    Glad to hear you like it... I'm debating putting the 1025 on my list to upgrade from my BB415... won't be soon, though...

    Well...that's a cool score. Congrats!
  9. I've got the 424X in the same color, these basses absolutely kill. So comfortable to play, and the sound is just fantastic. I love the way it responds to your hand position and pressure. Enjoy it!

    Had my first band practice with the new bass today and I'm beyond pleased.

    For a little background I've been playing 35 scale basses for the last 7-8 years. Kinda crazy how much more comfortable my hand was on the Yamaha's 34 scale and even crazier, the B string was incredible. I honestly always thought this "you can get a great B string on a 34 scale" business was a bunch of of malarkey, but go figure.

    All around, best bass I have ever owned and even played. Love it.
