    New Bass for me...
    1990 Yamaha Attitude Custom, very similar to the Billy Sheehan Attitude LTD basses.
    Have not had it long enough to get used to how different this bass is in several ways.
    The build quality is very good...think it's likely a keeper.

    There is a Dimarzio humbucker woofer pickup right at the heel of the neck and hidden under the pickguard.
    Middle pickup is a normal Split P pickup with brass plates under them like Fender does.
    Then there is a Piezo pickup on each saddle.


    If anybody knows where to get a replacement Yamaha bridge or (or saddles) please clue me in.
    It's the same bridge as for the Billy Sheehan Attitude LTD (version 1).
    I would like to remove the Piezos, don't need them, just want the Split P and the Woofer Humbucker.
    This bass is constructed like the Attitude LTD was, so a bridge without Piezos will mount up perfectly.
    Thanks for any feeback

    There’s a Facebook page dedicated to the Yamaha Attitude Bass, and Billy Sheehan is pretty active on it. You’ll find all the information there. Don’t know if you already know about it.

    Yes, I do.
    Have not gotten a response there yet.
    Thanks for the heads up though.
