Hi, I just fell in love with the Yamaha BB Series the other day.
Now I have decided to get one and learn how to play the bass.
I found this picture and I almost got a heart attack !
: Yamaha BB 3000
: Lava Red
That's exactly what I want !!
Whom is that picture from I wonder ?
The only bass guitar looking similar would be this one in Red Metallic:
It's the Yamaha BB 424 (479.- Euro = $ 588.- = Â£ 409.-)
I have asked my retailer whether it would be possible to exchange the chrome hardware for golden.
He is currently trying to find out the costs, if possible at all, and will get back to me in a few days.
That would be as close as I could get to my dream bass, but to be honest, I expect the price at the end to be far, far too high.
So, best alternative would be for me to just accept the chrome mechanics on the BB 424
in our area has the actual BB 3000 BM
(Black Metallic) .. for only 1.099.- Euro = $ 1.350.- = Â£ 939.-
If you follow the link and scroll down the page, you can watch a nice little demo of that bass, just ignore the language.
Actually I would have bought this bass immediately, if it was only in Lava Red color (but I also wish the back of the neck was smooth like the BB 424).
you can watch a videoclip about that particular neck.
