Yamaha BB 434 Bass Product Overview by GAK

The BB 434 is a Bass guitar from Yamaha's 400 series. The Bass features a Solid Alder Body, a well constructed 5 piece Maple and Mahogany neck and a Rosewood fingerboard.

Onboard you will find two YGD V5 custom pickups, tuned to give the Bass a brighter specifically to cut through in live performance. Control wise there are two volume controls and a tone control to help you truly shape the tone of the guitar for your specific sound.

One thing that particularly stood out for us in the BB 434 was the its "Diagonal Body Thru Stringing," which allows the strings to pass through the bridge at a 45 degree angle as opposed to traditional vertically strung basses. This works to reduce the stress and effectively transfers the vibration of the strings to the body of the guitar.

There are also a host of other key features on the guitar, these include; a new thinner neck shape and lightweight tuners perfect for the new smaller body.
