    Yamaha BB 404 4 string Bass. My scale has this at a light 7.6 pounds. 24 fret maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, two single coil pickups, Jazz style controls. Made in Taiwan.
    The $390 firm US dollar price includes shipping using Canada Post / USPS expedited parcel insured and tracked to your door within Canada and the continental United States. Alaska and Hawaii ship costs are about $10 higher so lets make the price $400 US Dollars to ship to those two states.

    I have used this website for the year of build topic, indicates this bass was born July 17 2003 : https://www.yamaha.com/yamahaguitars/ElectricandBassGuitarSerialNumberSystems.pdf

    The bass plays and sounds great. This 17 year old bass this has been babied.

    Any questions are appreciated so message me. Thanks.

    I know, can't beat a MIJ Yamaha for that price.

    I'm confused. The link indicates this bass was made in Japan. However, doesn't the text on the back of the body say made in Taiwan?

    These are amazing! My main bass (in Natural). Put Aguilar's in it recently (Cost more than what I paid for the bass). Had replaced with EMG's originally but didn't like them in this bass. The OEM pickups aren't bad at all. The bass is very resonant and loud when not plugged in. Alder bodies and a great effortless feeling neck. I played one when they first came out on the day I traded my Kubicki Factor for a Warwick Thumb and couldn't believe this cheap low line bass sounded so good (Lowest in the NE line). When I had kids and sold my Warwick I sought mine out and have not been disappointed in the 10+ years I have owned it. I will never sell mine!

    I had a BB605 - the 5 string version and it was my only bass for years. Amazing bass. Way under rated.
