The Yamaha BB series basses were designed purely with rockers in mind. Delivering high resonance sound, rock solid hardware and unique build methods that all add up to make this a highly popular bass played by the likes of James Lomenzo, Glen Hughes, Tony Kanal and Duff McKagan. Now for 2017 this new range of BB basses are here to celebrate 40 years of success and bring with them the excellent sound and build quality you'd expect.




The Yamaha BB234 Bass Guitar is crafted from Alder, a very popular wood for bass production owing to it's fundamental ability to produce a smooth, deep tone whilst remaining lightweight and comfortable to play. The alder body is then treated using Yamaha's exclusive A.R.E. seasoning process. This delivers an incredibly smooth and mature sound whilst enhancing the natural resonance of the body.




The BB234 Bass Guitar features a neck composed with maple and garnished with a smooth satin finish so that you can glide up and down the neck all night without discomfort. The combination of the maple and satin finish also delivers silky smooth tone and bright highs and ensures that the neck BB234 Bass Guitar doesn't warp over time.




The combination of a split single-coil bass in the middle position and a single bar pickup in the bridge position means that you can capture full-bodied sound that can also be controlled carefully. Smooth, driving bass right through to hard hitting, punchy slap bass lines can all be easily achieved with the BB234 owing to the independent volume controls and master tone control.




The BB234 Bass employs a vintage style bridge that works in complete harmony with the lightweight, open geared tuners to deliver rock solid tuning and deep sustain. For those that need a bass that means business, the Yamaha 2017 BB234 40th Anniversary Bass Guitar has got your back.

CITES regulations concerning the export of items containing certain woods affect any guitar sold ouside of the European Union and which contains any quantity of either Rosewood or Bubinga.  In these cases, an additional charge of £80.00 will be levied per species after the sale to pay for the required re-export certificate.  There will be a delay in dispatching any guitar containing either Bubinga or Rosewood of up to 4 weeks while we obtain the necessary certification for export. As the charge is per species, where a guitar contains both Bubinga AND Rosewood, the charge is doubled to £160.00.  We will contact you following your purchase of any guitar containing a controlled wood and advise of the charge once you have placed the order.  You can make payment for the charge by sending a Paypal payment to us at: sales@fxpedal.co.uk. 

Note that CITES only applies to guitars containing Rosewood or Bubinga that are being exported outside the European Union.  Guitars being delivered with the United Kingdom or in the European Union will be dispatched as normal.
