Yamaha BB Bass

This NAMM, Yamaha has both greatly diversified and drastically reduced the price of its iconic BB bass range. Composed of four series, it now features entry-level 200 models that begin at $299, as well as high-end Japanese-made models like the gorgeous 5-string shown here—which goes for $1,599 (well below previous top-of-the-line versions)—not to mention stunningly well-equipped 400- and 700-level models in between those two extremes.
