    This was the 5-string model I learned on and was/is a really great bass for the money! It’s only real weakness was the stock electronics, and it looks like you took care of that with your mods. GLWTS!

    Yes, I didn’t care for the Stock electronics so I had all that changed out. Played it at church a few times because I thought I needed the low B string. I keep going back to my 4 string P bass. If this Yamaha was a 4 string, I’d be keeping it for sure!

    Will you ship in a gig bag?

    I do not have a gig bag for this bass. I will see if I have an extra gig bag. If not, It will be securely packed in bubble wrap.

    I played the active version of this bass (BB605) for years. Really great bass - especially when I put Bartolini electronics in it.
