The ceramic magnet type pickup used at the front position delivers powerful bass tone that is clear and distinct. The bar type pickup used at the rear is designed to deliver double the volume of conventional bar type pickups. Its high power output produces a clear tone.
While the body is inherited from Yamaha's original BB, the neck is positioned 5mm deeper into the BB body creating a more rigid design that improves sound and attack.
Diagonal Body Thru Stringing
In Diagonal Body Thru Stringing, strings are angled 45 degrees at the saddle to reduce the stress and secure their tension. Moreover, because the attachment area of strings to saddles is larger than conventional vertical stringing, much better transmission of vibration is obtained.
The BB424X's neck consists of Maple and Mahogany. It provides durability and prevents necks from warping and curling.
