With the Yamaha BB-235, seen here with a gorgeous Raspberry Red finish, you get a great 5-stringed bass that's been designed to be an ideal "first step" for players wanted to make the jump from "beginner" to "aspiring pro".

A Powerful, Dynamic Bass For All Occasions

These professional-grade bass guitars are built to perform, and equipped with a pair of custom-voiced pickups, offering unparalleled playability and tonal options, especially at such an excellent price.

Yamaha BB-235 5 string Electric Bass, Raspberry Red Highlights

  • High quality 5-string bass for a great price
  • Super-smooth playability from the satin-finished Maple neck
  • Incredible tones from a Custom V3 P/J pickup set
  • Vintage-style bridge and Lightweight Open Gear Tuners combine for superior tuning stability
  • Gorgeous Raspberry Red finish
  • Excellent value for money

Built To Perform

This 5-stringed equivalent of the popular BB-234 has been crafted with a comfortably-shaped Solid Alder body, that's been given a stylish Raspberry Red finish.

Fitted with a satin-finished maple neck, this with an improved, thinner shaping over previous BB designs, this bass delivers an improved overall feel that better suits modern and traditional players alike.

Versatile Voice

Kitted out with a smooth pair of YGD (Yamaha Guitar Development) V3 Ceramic Pickups, you can expect clarity, detail and precision in every note you play.

Well-balanced for a versatile tone, this bass shines on anything from classic funk and soul, to punchy modern pop, to bluesy riffs - all easy controlled by the intuitive sound-shaping controls on the body.

Top-Notch Hardware

Fitted with lighter weight tuners, you'll reap the benefits of having a more natural-feeling bass that doesn't weigh you down.

Despite this, these tuners maintain that excellent tonal stability of the impressive BB Series of Professional bass guitars.
