Billy Sheehan Signature Bass Guitar

Signature Billy Sheehan Bass Build

Known for being the bassist for Steve Vai, G3 and the The Winery Dogs – Billy Sheehan is one of the best bassists in the business. When Yamaha approached the design of the BB714 BS, they worked closely with Billy Sheehan to ensure a great design that sounds good, is fun to play and features great value.

The body is made of Alder – a great wood found in many bass guitars due to its fantastic qualities that enhance the deep end and low notes of bass guitars.

Joining the body via bolt-on construction is a 21 fret Maple neck that has a classic Rosewood fingerboard. To make for an easy, fun and fast playing experience; the BB714BS has a slim neck that is a lot thinner than that on the Attitude bass making for a more comfortable playing experience.

Woofer Pickup Designed in Collaboration with YASH

Designed in collaboration with the Yamaha Artist Services Hollywood – Yamaha’s USA based state of the art R&D centre, the BB714BS features the Woofer pickup.

The Woofer pickup is a specially designed double humbucker which is installed at the neck position of the BB714BS so it can generate incredible low-end tones. It features a front humbucker that is wired through a push-pull high-cut circuit, allowing you to choose between the traditional “Attitude” neck pickup tone with nice high-end or a bass boosted, deep 60s sound.

Yamaha have kept things simple while giving you a lot of control over the BB714BS – to get the sound you like you’ll find a control for the Woofer pickup volume, another control for the main pickup volume and a third control for the Master Tone with a push-pull switch so you can toggle between the hi-cut and bass boost tones.

To ensure great looking hardware that is also environmentally friendly, the bridge and other hardware are black nickel plated which contains no lead.

Great Attitude Sound at a Great Price

Yamaha has a reputation for producing well-made instruments that are wonderfully priced so you get great value for money and the BB714BS is no different.

With the BB714BS, Yamaha have developed a fantastic bass guitar that is easy and fun to play while giving you the Billy Sheehan Attitude sound at an affordable price.
