    I had a difficult time deciding whether I should sell this guitar but need to fund tuition for pharm school. Hopefully, I can get this baby back in some years later:(

    Up for Sale is Yamaha BBNE2 with Rare All black hardware. Everything is same with original gold hardware parts except for the tuners. (Black tuner was not available at the time of production so it came with differently shaped gotoh tuner. Now you can get the same shape of tuners for $75 or so off the eBay, GB720)

    As per Yamaha customer service rep. This bass is made in Japan from 2002. The bass was played regularly on Sundays and never been abused. It has regular signs of wear(dings, scratches and some paint chips. see pics) but no functional issues at all. The guitar was well maintained with regular set-up by local luthier (Jack Romano in Conshohocken PA). Fodera round wound nickel plated steel strings (Low B - Standard: .045 .065 .085 .105 .125) are on but it might need a new set of string.

    Including:
    - Hardshell case with a custom-made foam pad for bbne2 body
    - Gruv Gear FretWrap
    - Mono Betty strap (S)
    - Planet waves Guitar strap
    - Planet waves Hygrometer
    - Moiskeeper (Ask Google about it:D)

    Shipping is available to the lower 48 but I prefer a meet up in Baltimore, NOVA and DC area - I will throw in Levi soft gig bag if you pick up locally. No international sales.

    FINAL PRICE DROP! $1300 Shipped (USPS money order or Paypal with confirmed address ONLY, no cashier's checks) No Trade.

    Feel free to ask for more pictures!

    I wish these only ever came with black hardware. Hardly ever see NE using one with gold hardware.

    Yes! that's the reason why I jumped on this right away when I saw this. I liked the BBNE2 playability and sound but didn't want the ugly gold hardware. :)

    Golds are stock color but Yamaha rep told me that this one might have been special ordered by music store in EU or Japan. The only bbne2s that come with stocm Black hardwares are ‘BBNE2 ltd ptw’
