Yamaha’s BB735 Bass features a contoured an Alder/Maple/Alder multi-laminated body construction. The hard maple center increases body stiffness and accentuates midrange to cut through the mix of a band, and allows a more uniform transmission of vibrations between the body and the maple neck for unparalleled resonance and sustain.
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 BB735 5-String Bass is outfitted with Yamaha’s V7 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 3-Band Active EQ facilitates expands tonal versatility.

The BB735 is equipped with a Vintage Plus 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. Light weight tuners offer a better balance and complement the overall feel. Case not included.
