Yamaha 5-String Bass BUNDLE available exclusively from Kraft Music, including the Yamaha BB425X 5-String Electric Bass in Tobacco Sunburst Finish, Gig Bag, Guitar Stand, Instructional DVD, Guitar Strap and String Winder. The Yamaha BB Series basses have been the workhorse for great bass players like Nathan East, Tony Kanal, Michael Anthony, and Lee Sklar. The ceramic magnet type pickup used at the front position delivers powerful bass tone that is clear and distinct. The bar type pickup used at the rear is designed to deliver double the volume of conventional bar type pickups. Its high power output produces clear tone. While the body is inherited from Yamaha's original BB, the neck is positioned 5mm deeper into the BB body creating a more rigid design that improves sound and attack.
