Show Us Your Basses

NBD!
Limping through lessons with pawn shop instruments was getting to be a drag, so I pulled the trigger on a demo Yamaha BB434. It’s here, and I’m really digging it. No untoward noises, even with the single coil J pickup solo. The rosewood fretboard is really nice. Here’s the glamour shot from Sweetwater. It looks the same at home, just not as glamorous.

Shielding will fix the drama with the RBX and a new jack will fix the Squier. I will donate the Squier and keep the RBX as a backup.

WOW… I bet those 53 Pups are hand wound. Nice, loose, and fat as hell sound by now. Must be a joy to play!

A 2010 Washburn XB-120 Bantam bass. It sounds and plays pretty good for an “affordable” instrument. It’s next to a 1981 G&L F-100.
