    I got this one brand new 2 years ago, and it's been very well taken care of since. It has some very light swirling on the back from playing, but no scratches, dents or dings. Looks almost new. 17.5mm string spacing at bridge. Weighs in at 9.9 lbs, includes OHSC and accessories.

    Price is $1650 shipped CONUS.

    New, these are $2500 anywhere you go. Buy this one and save $850!



    Nathan East Signature Model

    Featuring neck-through construction, the two-octave neck is built from maple and mahogany with an ebony fingerboard inlaid with figured abalone. Matching mother-of-pearl tuners complete the look. The unique BB body is made of maple and alder for a fat sound with plenty of definition. The BPZ-7 bridge features individual, machined saddles that provide precise intonation, a low profile, and an elegant look. The stacked Alnico humbuckers run through Yamaha's 5-control active electronics, which feature a custom 3-band EQ with a switchable mid-cut to provide sonic versatility for any situation.

    BBNE2 Pickups
    The stack type pickups are designed in collaboration with Nathan East. The Alnico V Humbucker pickups include a hum-canceling coil.

    Indivisual Bridge Pieces
    The bridge consists of individual bridge pieces that reduce interference from other string vibration delivering a purer tone.

    • Pickup Balancer
    • Master Volume
    • Bass
    • Middle
    • Treble
    • Mid Cut Frequency
    • Mid Cut On-Off Switch
    Active Electronics
    Active electronics include a special equalizer circuit based on Nathan East's "Magic Box". The circuit lets you cut off the selected mid frequency at the touch of a switch for precision sound tailoring.

    5-Piece Neck Through design
    The neck through design uses a 5-piece maple and mahogany neck sandwiched between the maple on alder body.

    Contoured Body
    Both the front and back of the bass body are contoured to provide players with a compact, well fitting instrument that offers greater playing comfort.

    Oh man... Such a great looking bass!

    Never played one... Actually afraid to... If I do I might be haunted until I get one...
