Yamaha SBV 500 bass


Recommended Posts

I'm selling a 2000 Yamaha SBV 500 bass - a recent reissue of the "Samurai" type of offset bodied basses of the 60s.  It's been modified with an EMG-BQC active EQ (3 band EQ with mid sweep) and a proper battery box.  Controls going away from the bridge are - stacked volume/volume, mid/mid sweep, treble/bass.  Bass is sparkly blue with a matching headstock.  In reasonable cosmetic condition - there are some dings on the body and quite a bit of buckle rash on the back (not mine!), some chips around the edges of the headstock and there is a crack in the headstock emanating from the E tuner hole but it hasn't moved in all the time I've had it.  2 Jazz-ish single coil pickups, pretty slim neck, balances surprisingly well considering the shape on a good leather strap.

Looking for £250 for this bass.  No trades.  Tryouts welcome.
