The premiere Nathan East signature model.
Designed by Yamaha and Nathan East, bassist for Eric Clapton and Phil Collins. For years the Yamaha BB Series basses have defined the best in bass technology, building a reputation for their excellent tone and sustain, comfortable feel, and quiet performance. This new BB model carries on the tradition with a slim-line, solid alder body topped with premium maple for unsurpassed looks, comfort, and tone. A thru-body maple and mahogany neck offers the ultimate in tone and stability, while its ebony fretboard has a smooth violin-type feel. Active electronics include 2 Alnico V-Stack pickups and a Nathan East NE1 parametric EQ for maximum sound-shaping capability. Die-cast gold with white tuners. Includes hardshell case.

Comments about Yamaha BBNE2 Nathan East Signature Model:
I have been wanting one of these since I saw Nathan East use one while performing with Toto. I am really impressed with the overall quality and sound of this bass. I own lots of boutique 5 string 35 scale USA made basses. This is my only imported bass. I am enjoying gigging with it. Great tonal range and great looking instrument. Don't hesitate to try one. I know you will be pleasantly surprised.
