Featuring neck-through construction, the two-octave neck is built from maple and mahogany with an ebony fingerboard inlaid with figured abalone. Matching mother-of-pearl tuners complete the look. The unique BB body is made of maple and alder for a fat sound with plenty of definition. The BPZ-7 bridge features individual, machined saddles that provide precise intonation, a low profile, and an elegant look. The stacked Alnico humbuckers run through Yamaha's 5-control active electronics, which feature a custom 3-band EQ with a switchable mid-cut to provide sonic versatility for any situation.

5-Piece Neck Through design

The neck through design uses a 5-piece maple and mahogany neck sandwiched between the maple on alder body.

Contoured Body

Both the front and back of the bass body are contoured to provide players with a compact, well fitting instrument that offers greater playing comfort.


The stack type pickups are designed in collaboration with Nathan East. The Alnico V pickups include hum-canceling coils.

Individual Bridge Pieces

The bridge consists of Individual bridge pieces that reduce interference from other string vibration delivering a purer tone.

Active Electronics

Active electronics include a special equalizer circuit based on Nathan East's "Magic Box." The circuit lets you cut off the selected mid frequency at the touch of a switch for precision sound tailoring.
