The 400 lineup continues the BB tradition of great build quality and signature sound that won the series acclaim throughout its forty-year history. Whether you prefer a rosewood fingerboard or the distinctively bright, crisp sound of maple, the precision feel and response of the six bolt miter neck along with the presence and clarity of custom-wound pickups will inspire you to play your best when it really counts.

Alder/Maple/ Alder Body Construction

The new BB features an alder/maple/alder laminated body construction. The hard maple center increases body stiffness and accentuates midrange to cut through a band mix, and allows a more uniform transmission of vibrations between the body and the maple neck for unparalleled resonance and sustain. (BB Pro, BB700 Series)

6-bolt Miter Neck Joint 

Miter bolting holds the neck closer and tighter to the body fusing these two separate components into one. Compared to a conventional bolt-on joint, miter bolting offers more efficient transfer of string vibration throughout the body, for improved sustain and outstanding resonance that brings every note to life. (BB Pro, BB400 Series)

Convertible Bridge and Saddle for Precise Tone Shaping

BB basses incorporate "Diagonal Body Thru Stringing" where strings are angled at the saddle and pass through the instrument to the bridge at a 45-degree angle. Strings can also be sent to the tail end of the bridge, which comes equipped with a convertible saddles that can be adjusted to two different angles for more precise tonal shaping and feel. The rounder side of the saddle gives a slightly duller sound, while the more angles area of the saddle produces a slightly tighter one.

YGD Custom V5 Pickups

Alnico magnet pickups tuned to deliver the classic BB vintage tone, slightly updated to provide a brighter sound that cuts through in live performances situations.


The latest BB400 models are equipped with one Tone control and two Volume controls for versatile sound shaping.

5-Piece Neck

The latest BB400 models features a 5-Piece maple and mahogany laminated neck, in a bolt-on design the delivers a sharp attack, and quick response. This durable construction resists warping and twisting and combines the tight, penetrating character of maple with the warmth of mahogany.

Neck Shape

The latest BB models feature a slightly thinner neck than previous BB Basses, improving playability and feel for both and traditional bassists.

Lightweight Tuners

Lighter-weight tuners offer better balance and complement the overall feel, providing a perfect match for the smaller, lighter body of the latest BB.
