A real pro working bass

21.02.2017
I honestly cannot find fault with this bass. Yamaha manage to surprise me every time with the quality of their products.

Body has a deep shine over superb wood.

Neck laminates are flawless, the neck finish is beautiful thin satin with a gloss headstock. The rosewood on the fingerboard is tight-grained and lighter in colour than I'm used to. Frets are tall and narrow, adding to the feel of precise action.

The string-through bridge is a superb design.

Pickups are tonally different, from the biting attack of the bridge pickup to the punchy roundness of the neck pickup. This is probably one of the first PJ basses I've ever played which can actually replicate both P and J tones. The J pickup is slightly more modern sounding than the average Fender. Both pickups together are, as always, slightly disappointing, losing a little punch and character.

There is not a dead spot anywhere on the neck, every note rings true and sustains well. The low B is pretty good in terms of definition, especially as this is only a 34" scale.

Controls, switches and hardware are first rate. This bass feels boutique and sounds it too.

Note that it is a heavy beast and you will need a thick strap. It is also slightly neck-heavy so be prepared to use a grippy strap to keep it balanced. (The MONO Betty is great for this)

Supplied Yamaha gigbag is plush lined and extremely high quality.

Some defects are difficult to accept at this price: the varnish is not super-stretched, we see micro pores, the bass is not well balanced, the nose plunges a little down. The handle is easy as the Yamaha sleeves, not too wide. The sounds are limited and lack color (rather neutral like many Yamaha sounds). I'd prefer a balance to the switch. The cover is great. I returned it to Thomann without problem (30 EUR). There are no shops where you can try what you want.
