Overview

Yamaha BB425X in Tobacco Brown Sunburst – Taking inspiration from the sound and design of the Yamaha BB2000 series bass guitar, the BB425X is an excellent entry-level 5 string bass giving you a lot of bang for your buck.

Great Value 5 String Bass

Solid Construction

Yamaha have a brilliant reputation for producing great value instruments – you get a lot of bang for your buck with their solidly crafted basses which makes them perfect entry-level basses for people wanting to start playing bass on a great quality instrument without having to break the bank.

The body is made of Alder and bolt-on construction sees the attachment of a Maple and Nato (or Mahogany depending on quality wood availability) 5pc neck. The result is a very solid neck which improves the transfer of string vibration to the body. The fretboard is classic Rosewood.

The BB425X is identical to the BB425 in specs and design, however the BB425X comes with an awesome looking plastic and metal pickguard installed.

Jazz Bass and Precision Bass Electronics

For the pickups on the BB24 bass, Yamaha have given you the best of both worlds – in the neck position you will find a split single coil pickup which is commonly found on P-bass, or precision bass models while in the bridge position is a single blade jazz bass, soapbar style pickup.

A three way pickup selector switch allows you to change up which pickups you are using. In the first position, you have just the neck pickup activated, giving you that classic precision bass sound.

The second position on the pickup selector gives you a combination of both the neck and bridge pickups, resulting in a nice ‘scooped’ sound for an all-round tone, suitable for many styles.

Finally, in the third position you’ll just be using the jazz bass pickup which is great for playing funky, groovy styles due to the extra bite it gives.

Simple Design, Great Value

Keeping the BB425X bass nice and simple; in addition to the three-way pickup selector switch are Master Volume and Master Tone controls. This allows you to focus on your playing while being able to dial in the tones you want quickly, and easily.

Yamaha are well-known for producing quality instruments at very attractive price points and the BB425X is no exception making it perfect bass for learning to play on or even as an all-round workhorse for intermediate and advanced players.
