BB-1200Electric Bass / 1977
The earliest model of Yamaha’s signature BB series basses, and still a major player in the lineup.
The BB-1200 was sold as a flagship model featuring a neck-through structure that pleased many a bassist. Bolt-on models BB-1000 and BB-800 were also sold around the same time.
The basic design of the BB series has remained nearly unchanged to this day, a testament to its high degree of perfection.
