: Does anyone own a 5 string Yamaha BBG5 Bass?

: What do you think of the bass? Good and Bad points.

: Thanks and God bless,

I just sold one. It was my main bass for 2 years, until I switched back to 4 string. It is a well built bass, but the neck is kinda wide for some poeple (I liked it that way). The only complaint I have is the sound. It was kind of thin for my taste. I added a EMG pre-amp, and that really improved the sound. Different pickups would have helped too. Other than the sound, I liked it.
