when I lost all my gear in January due to a house fire (http://www.bebo.com/mulchefye for all the tunes I uploaded b4 the fire thank GOD) I went into a depression the likes of which I have no precedent for...I literally wanted to DIE...43 years of life reduced to cinders in an hour man, but I am still breathing...lost it all, 11 guitars and basses and my Dog and Cat...so NOW I am buying every fuckin BASS and guitar I see, and I recently purchased a Yamaha bb300. Holy MOSES it is heavy! Good thing I dont strap my bass over my shoulder or I would be hurtin big time...I was wondering if any of u have any experience with this bass, and if I made a good buy ($100 Canadian) and also why the hell its so damn heavy...is the bloody neck filled with lead?

IIRC that bass has a rather wide body, a P-type neck,
big "Fender-style" tuners, and it's a reliable, low cost
bass. All the qualities that usually result in a heavy ax
are in play there.

Weight is a common approach to assuring decent tone
without costly features or costly R&D. Building a 7.5 lb
bass that sounds huge usually costs serious money.


New basses are red. Used basses are black.
