Yamaha Broad Bass VIs
Yamaha were gaining some real traction in the musical instrument market in the eighties, with the help from some stellar electric guitars and the BB Bass series. The Broad Bass (shortened by BB) was a no nonsense take on the hugely popular P Bass, only with superior quality hardware and electronics.
The unique body shape enabled the BB to be more lightweight that it's American counterpart - this doesn't effect the tone however, this Yamaha has bags of sustain and tone, mainly thanks to the superb Yamaha hum-cancelling pickup.
This is a medium scale variant of the BBVI, sporting a 31.5" scale length.
