BB1024 incorporates many of the same features found in the BB2000 series such as, spline joint body and 5-piece neck, diagonal body thru stringing, newly developed pickups and bridge. This bass gives strong presence in sound with defined low end.
BB1024 has employed a 3-piece body structure with which its bridge is placed on the center piece in order to translate the maximum amount of string vibration to the body. Instead of simply gluing wood pieces, we insert a Maple plate, called "Splin", into a slot on its joint sections. By doing that, Yamaha has succeeded in obtaining as much body vibration as 1-piece body with this 3-piece body structure.
Diagonal Body Thru Stringing
In Diagonal Body Thru Stringing, strings are angled 45 degreed at the saddle to reduce the stress and secure their tension. Moreover, because the attachment area of strings to saddles is larger than conventional vertcial stringing, much better transmisson of vibration is obtained.
Both front and rear pickups are specially invented for this particular series. Pursuing ultimate passive sound, "Open Face Pickups" are used to cope with even aggressive picking of rock players.
These necks consist of Maple and Nato. It provides durability and prevents necks from warping and curling.
Nickel Silver Nut
