Vintage Yamaha BB1200
This came from a large store buyout and we have literally hundreds of guitars and basses piled up, ready to sell, and we do not have the time or resources to closely inspect every one. Some guitars listed might need some basic maintenance (intonation, bridge or neck adjustment, etc.) in addition to any specific issues mentioned. There are definitely some gems in the lot, so be sure to check in regularly!
Up for auction is this used vintage late 1970s Yamaha BB1200 4-String Bass Guitar. This shows some cosmetic wear including some small dings and scratches, and some "worm trails" on back, but in general, for a 30+ year old instrument, this is in excellent condition. The electronics have been modified/upgraded with the addition of a second pickup in the bridge position and a three way selector switch. In addition, the 1/4" jack has been reinforced with a square metal plate, and it looks like the original jack may have started to weaken the wood around it (hence the metal plate addition). The jack is solid and works fine. While this has been modified, it was VERY well done with a professional look and good soldering. With the second pickup, this has a large range of tones (our guess is it would be similar to the BB2000, Yamaha's higher end, 2-pickup bass from the same era, although the pickup does not appear to be Yamaha brand - we're not sure what it is). All the controls work as expected and are clean, the neck is in good condition with a working trus rod, and this plays and sounds great. This is the same model Paul McCartney used often during the Wings era (although not left-handed like his, and without the mods), and from the info we could find, the serial number of 0030XX dates this to 1978-79, the same period Sir Paul was using his Yamaha. Weighs 10.15 lbs with a 34" scale, and comes with a nice fitted hard shell case in great condition.
Good Luck and Happy Bidding!
