Since their original release, Yamaha BB basses have offered players the traditional tones they crave with a feel and character all their own. This BB235 5-string electric bass guitar puts all the legendary attributes of the originals into a straightforward passive design that is both inspiring and affordable. And whether you're a beginner or a seasoned player, you'll love the neck's thinner profile and the way the bass stays balanced thanks to its lightweight tuning machines. If you want a value-packed spin on the BB bass, the BB235 5-string is for you.
What truly sets Yamaha's BB basses apart from other basses are their comfortable and familiar contours. Carefully crafted from balanced-sounding alder, the BB235 5-string boasts that same identifiable character. Its rounded edges and forearm and belly cuts seem to melt into your body while playing. The bass's maple bolt-on neck sings with a familiar punch and midrange that accompanies that construction style, while its slightly thinner profile is a welcome addition to more modern styles of players.
