This bass is an excellent buy. I can’t say enough good things about this bass. I have been wanting for a while now a 5-string P/J bass and I believe I have found the one. I bought a sire p7 earlier this year and thought it played great but I had a hard time finding the right tones and I spent more time messing with the knobs than enjoying playing it. I sold it because I have other basses that I like more and thought I would give up on the 5-string P/J bass for a while. Then I saw this Yamaha bb735a and thought I would give it a go and I am so glad did. I had never played a Yamaha bass before but I figured that because of their reputation and the high-level players that endorse them that it will be worth the try. Right out of the box I could tell that this is a quality instrument and it was already set up to play. It was in pretty good tune, the action was about right, and the neck was straight. The playability is great, the mids, lows, and highs are all awesome, and the bass is not very heavy. The thing I like the most is that the passive tone is great and it does not have a significant volume cut when you switch it from active. The p-bass sound is nice and low and can give you old school tones or more modern tones. The jazz pickup adds a nice high end for enhancing slap tones, jazz, or funk. This bass is a keeper and I look forward to playing it for many years to come. I never thought I would be a Yamaha guy but know I can say that I am.
