Yamaha commemorates its 30th anniversary collaboration with Billy Sheehan with this bass. The colour is a little boring but it’s the colour of Sheehan’s first P-bass (aka The Wife) so it’s a walk down memory lane. Yamaha makes good basses, really. If you’ve handled an upper tier model, you know it’s the works; everything so classy from one end of the instrument to the other. If you don’t already noticed, Yamaha invests more time, resources, R&D & marketing for their basses than their guitars (in the mean time). However, many of us do not look up to Yamaha as a formidable name in musical instruments, we are distracted by their motorbikes, boat engines & pianos.
