6-Bolt Miter Neck Joint

Close-up of 6-bolt miter neck joint

Miter bolting holds the neck closer and tighter to the body, fusing these two separate components into one.

Compared to a conventional bolt-on joint, miter bolting offers more efficient transfer of string vibration throughout the body, for outstanding sustain and resonance that brings every note to life.

YGD Custom V5 Pickups

Convertible Bridge and Saddle for Precise Tone Shaping: Vintage Plus Light bridge

BB400 models feature our Vintage Plus Light bridge, which allows stringing through the bridge or body. Strings pass through the body at a 45-degree angle, which places less stress on the strings than traditional vertical through-body stringing, while efficiently transferring string vibration to the body. In 5-string models the bridge is equipped with an offset low B string.

Long-scale strings are recommended when stringing through the bridge and super long-scale strings are recommended when stringing through the body.

5-Piece Neck

The latest BB400 models features a 5-piece maple and mahogany laminated neck, in a bolt-on design that delivers a sharp attack, and quick response. This durable construction resists warping and twisting and combines the tight, penetrating character of maple with the warmth of mahogany.

Neck Shape

The latest BB models feature a slightly thinner neck than previous BB basses, improving playability and feel for both modern and traditional bassists.

Lightweight Tuners
