: Just bought a new bass, and was wondering if anybody else has one of these. It's a Yamaha BBG5S, and I got the the Black one,
: So far, it plays great, and it's everything I could want or need out of a 5 string.
: Has a bright sound right now, but it really sound great when I play with my band. Used it for the first time last nightm and everyone loved the change. definatly a step up from my DeArmond Pilot pro.
: Here's a link for anyone that wants an affordable 5 string that plays like a more expensive one.
Mark, last June I bought a Yamaha BBN5 II. I love it. The pickups have such a natural growl to them. I really don't know what the difference is between the BBG5 and N5 series because they look pretty much the same. I agree with you about it playing like a more expensive one. That price you paid is crazy, man. Every once in a while M/F has these little publicized sales, and when they do you can really clean up. If anyone is looking for a good, not too expensive 5er, go to the thread Mark posted and check it out. They're great for the money. Can't beat it with a stick.
Good luck with it, Mark
