    I think you can find them at your local Yamaha dealer. They've stopped producing the cheaper Attitudes but I'm sure theyre still in stock in alot of stores(that carry Yamahas).

    Any sound bytes from any of these beauties?

    Just curious....what's so special about a 4 string with a p bass p/u......? I've never seen or played one of these, so be nice.

    No sound bytes from me I'm afraid....


    A 4 string with a P-bass pup.....well, P-basses are pretty special to some folk;)


    Sorry couldn't resist! Right what the Attitude is is a collaboration between Billy Sheehan and Yamaha. Billy used to play a P-bass which he had added a Gibson humbucker to in the neck position. HE had also added another output jack so that he could run the pickups to 2 separate stacks.


    Have a look at the pics of my bass. See the rectangle of pickguard that appears to be held down by 4 screws in front of the P pickup.....that's the other humbucker. Also note that there are 2 output jacks. Now for most of us mortals, we only have one rig....so you can blend the pickup output. Or you can individually have the outputs selected.



    The controls on mine are woofer volume, woofer tone, P type volume. The woofer tone and P-bass volume are also push-push type pots - the tone one controls a treble cut, and the P-bass is the pickup selector to select blended or separate output.

    Hope this helps!
