Yamaha BB734A Electric Bass Guitar

The Yamaha BB734A Electric Bass Guitar is designed to satisfy all your gigging needs. Combining the crisp and serious flexibility of active pickups with the punch and sustain of a 6-bolt miter neck joint. You can rely on the 700 models to deliver an extraordinarily versatile sound.

Features:

  • Alder / Maple/ Alder Body Construction
  • 6-Bolt Miter Neck Joint
  • 5-piece Neck
  • YGD Custom V7 Pickups (Alnico V)
  • 3-Band Active EQ
  • Battery Alert LED
  • Vintage Plus Bridge : Convertible Bridge and Saddle
  • Lightweight Open Gear Tuners


Alder/Maple/Alder Body Construction

The new BB features 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.


6-bolt Miter Neck Joint
Miter bolting holds the neck closer and tighter to the body fusing these two separate components into one. The Mitre bolting system offers more efficient transfer of string vibration throughout the body. This improves sustain and resonance of the bass.

YGD Custom V7 Pickups
Alnico magnets produce a fat yet penetrating tone that works in combination. Pairing these with the Alder/Maple/Alder constructions gets your a versatile sound.

Active Circuit
The new BB700 models feature a specially tuned active/passive circuit for fine tonal control and extreme flexibility. This gives you a crisper tone and improved mids via a level-matched output whether in passive or active mode. And the tone-switching circuitry that seamlessly moves from treble control to master passive tone.

High-quality gold plated parts are used for key signal chain contacts, providing increased conductivity and reliability. You will also find a battery level alert LED on the back.


Control
  • Active 3 band EQ
  • Pickup Balancer
  • Active/Passive Switch

Convertible Bridge and Saddle for Precise Tone Shaping: Vintage Plus Bridge
The 700 series are equipped with the Vintage Plus Bridge. This bridge incorporates a “Diagonal Body Thru Stringing,” where strings are angled at the saddle and pass through the instrument to the bridge at a 45º angle. Diagonal Body Thru Stringing significantly reduces this stress while transferring string vibration to the body reliably and efficiently.

Strings can also be set to the tail end of the bridge. The BB734A comes equipped with a convertible saddle that can be adjusted to 2 different angles for more precise tonal shaping and feel. The rounder side of the saddle gives a slightly softer sound, while the more angled area produces a slightly tighter one.

The brass saddle of the Vintage Plus Bridge delivers a slightly deeper low-end, and the steel bridge plate offers a brighter tone. All screws and springs are made of stainless steel to guard against corrosion.

*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. This durable construction resists warping and twisting.


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 of the lighter body.
