Based on the classic Yamaha BB, the 2024X has been designed with discerning musicians in mind. With a newly developed string-through-body bridge, and a five-piece maple/mahogany neck, this is a tone machine. Mixing the best of vintage design, with modern improvements, this bass aims to offer the best of both worlds. The pickups are a mix of P-bass and Jazz bass styles, and can be selected individually or blended to get a range of tones that are both high output, but clean, to maintain the best bass sound possible. The body uses an innovative technology to join three pieces of wood, allowing them to have the maximum string vibration of a one-piece body. The nickel silver nut is made of the same material as fret wires, giving the same tonal quality for an open note as a fretted one, which greatly enhances well defined low end.
