    Here is a nother pic,a closer virw-it's a beauty!
     
  3. These are one of the best 5's available for the bucks. Do it! The latest model has the more traditional Jazz style pickups.
     
  4. Viktor, I have a BBN5 II. It's passive, I think the BBG5 is active.

    Mine is in the natural finish.

    It has the same pickups as the bass in the photo, but has the typical jazz bass vol-vol-tone control set-up. Other than that, it's identical.
    I agree with Marty; you can't buy a better bass in this price range. It feels so natural in my hands, and it balances very well too.

    If you want my opinion, I would say, buy it! :)

    Yamahas at every price range are an excellent value, and are very well made.

    Good luck.
