That is a Yamaha BB. The active four string version, from the looks of it. Nice bass.

Upload your images to somewhere like Imageshack.

Find the URL of the picture, and slap it between (Invalid img) tags without any spaces. Presto, one picture.

There's also a "manage attachments" button below the reply box here to upload straight to UG.

Hi, I know this thread is from a very long time ago, but I can tell you that I have one of these basses. It's called a Yamaha SB-35 and was only produced between 1972-75. It's 31.5 inch scale, body made from Katsura, neck from Maple, Rosewood fingerboard, single pickup, one volume one tone. If you are lucky enough not to have sold it, I can tell you that they are as rare as Rocking Horse S**t. Even old Yamaha catalogues don't list them. I have all my information direct from a Yamaha rep that used to work for them during the 70's. The weird bit about its value is, that it's so rare that peopld have never heard of them and no realistic value can be put on them. I have seen then odd one (and I mean odd one) go for a couple of hundred quid, which for it's build and rarety is rediculous. I have no intention of selling mine as I think its quite remarkable as a short scale bass. If I ever see any for sale again at silly low money, I'll jump on them as an investment.

That's a sweet bass, but please refrain from reviving long dead threads. This one hasn't been active in 8 years.
