Yamaha BB434 Electric Bass Guitar

The Yamaha BB434 Electric Bass Guitar continues the BB tradition of great build quality and signature sound that won the series acclaim throughout its forty-year history. Whether you prefer a rosewood fingerboard or the distinctively bright, crisp sound of maple, the precision feel and response of the six bolt miter neck along with the presence and clarity of custom-wound pickups will inspire you to play your best when it really counts.

Features:

  • Solid Alder Body
  • 6-Bolt Miter Neck Joint
  • 5-piece Neck
  • YGD Custom V5 Pickups (Alnico V)
  • Vintage Plus Light Bridge : Convertible Bridge and Saddle
  • Lightweight Open Gear Tuners


6-bolt Miter Neck Joint

Miter bolting 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. This gives you improved sustain and outstanding resonance that brings every note to life.


YGD Custom V5 Pickups

The Alnico magnet pickups are tuned specifically for the BB434. These pickups deliver a sound that can cut through any mix.


Control

The new BB models are equipped with one tone control and two volume control knobs, for versatile sound shaping.


Convertible Bridge for Precise Tone Shaping: Vintage Plus Light Bridge

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. In 5-string models the bridge is equipped with an offset

low B string.

*Long-scale strings are recommended when stringing through the bridge and super long-scale strings are recommended when stringing through the body.


Five-piece Neck

The new series features a 5-ply maple and mahogany laminated neck, in a bolt-on design that 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.


New Neck Shape

The New BB models feature a slightly thinner neck than previous BB basses, improving playability and feel for both modern and traditional players.


Lightweight Tuners

Lighter weight tuners offer a better balance and complement the overall feel, providing a perfect match for the smaller, lighter body of the new BB.
