I like this one.
I like it too.
what model is it?
Wow, that's like sexy in all the right places... I wonder how it feels / sounds ... and Guitar Center is two blocks away ... hmmm...
Please tell me you're not joking! Are they really going to make BB X/3000 and 5000 available in other parts of the world than Japan? If so, I've got a serious case of GAS.
I love that copper finish.
ooo the 55-01 has some nice competition for my next bass now
Can't wait to try one out. Some of the original BB basses from the '80s were incredible.
Wow! Check out that bridge. All ready to accept a tapered B string. Now that's what I call "engineering"!
NICE BASS! I LIKE!
Yes the new BB615/614 and 415/414 basses are looking good.
I can tell you they sound pretty good aswell. And they are really cheap, well for what you get for the money at least) I think the list price in Denmark is going to be around 5300 DKK for the 5 string active BB615. Street price is probably going to be less, and in the U.S. alot less. Thats pretty good.
The orange metallic finish lookes really cool too, much better than on the picture. and the EQ works well too.
I think everybody should have one
This looks like a straight reissue of the bB3000. I hope it is. Some of the bass basses made were discontinued for no good reason. If Yamaha reissues these, they will have a seriosuly good thing going.
It will be good to have a split P-bass pickup five at a easily affordable pricepoint. I really like the fact that the new version of the BB five string has decent string spacing. I think the list on these is something like $749, so I'm expecting a street price of $580-540!
It does, doesn't it?
So do I, and I've been hoping ever since I foolishly traded my BB1600 away about twelve years ago.
Actually, they've been made all along, but only for the Japanese market. I've ed over Yamaha's Japanese website for many hours, and have even been thinking of researching the possibility of importing one. Now it seems as if I won't have to!
Couldn't have said it better myself. I'm already saving up for a fretless (if Yamaha will continue their fine tradition of offering the entry level BB models in a fretless version) and see a fretted/fretless pair in my future. If I find that I like these new models as much as I did my old BB1600, that is.
Can't wait to actually try one of these new ones out for myself. Has anyone heard anything about when they'll be available in stores?
The entry level fretless BB's are GREAT! I've got a BB404F ($500CAD) that's my main bass, and I've stuck it up against >$1000 stuff and it's still come out sounding playing better. Plus, I know personally that you can get the action *crazy* low if you work for it . Great build quality, good sound, and it records nicely.
As it is...Yammy's are great basses. I'd love to check these out!
nice bass, welcome to the club i just got a TRB-6pI and i'm looking foward to a TRB-JP thats on the way
TRB6-pI? Whaaaaaaaaaaaat?! That looks so awesome!
My teacher uses a TRB6...great bass. The shop I go to most of the time has a TRB4-II on the wall in the same finish as my teacher's bass right now.
Here's my mid eighties BB3000S.
For your information, the BB614 sells at 399 EUR...
