    Anyone have one of these basses? they look very nice, but are VERY hard to get hold of in the UK. If anyone in the UK is selling one PLEASE get in touch with me.

    I WANT A YAMAHA BB1500A!!!!!!

    Are they good for slap?
     
  2. They are pretty darn good basses, I have one for sale in my store. It's natural finish. They're a good alternative for someone who likes Fender basses.
     
  3. I own one, and it really is a great bass!

    I played one a while back, and i agree with Marty Forrer, they are a great, cheaper version of a fender with the looks and almost the same feel. and BTW, yes, they're good for slap :D
     
  5. Hi Kirby, just wondered if you know, or know of, my brother Andrew Forrer, a bassist in Melbourne, also a very longtime friend called Mike Rudd, a wonderful singer/songwriter. Yeah, I know, Melbourne's a pretty big place, but ya never know.....
