The latest in Yamaha's storied BB series of bass guitars delivers the superb sound and build quality that this series is known for in a smaller body with even better playability. Featuring custom-wound pickups that achieve higher output gain while retaining the classic BB voicing, the new lineup of BB basses are a testament to Yamaha’s commitment to musical excellence. The BB434 Bass features a contoured solid alder body with classic original 1977 BroadBass styling. The bolt-on 34” scale 5-ply maple and mahogany laminated neck delivers a sharp attack, and quick response. This durable construction resists warping and twisting and adds the tight, penetrating character of maple combined with the warmth of mahogany to the instrument’s tone. Yamaha's 6-Bolt Miter Neck Joint holds the neck closer and tighter to the body fusing these two separate components into one. Compared to a conventional bolt-on joint, miter bolting offers more efficient transfer of string vibration throughout the body, for improved sustain and outstanding resonance that brings every note to life.

The BB434 Bass is outfitted with Yamaha’s V5 Alnico pickups; with a split single-coil P style pickup, along with a single coil J style pickup in the bridge position. these pickups are tuned to deliver the classic BB vintage tone, slightly updated to provide a brighter sound that cuts through in live performance situations. A master tone control and two volume control knobs facilitate versatile sound shaping.

The 400 models are equipped with a Vintage Plus Light bridge that incorporates “Diagonal Body Thru Stringing,” in which the strings are angled at the saddle and pass through the instrument to the bridge at a 45º angle, as opposed to the traditional vertical stringing method which places more stress on the strings. Diagonal Body Thru Stringing significantly reduces this stress while transferring string vibration to the body reliably and efficiently. The strings can also be attached to the tail end of the bridge. Light weight tuners offer a better balance and complement the overall feel. Case not included.
