Yamaha Nathan East 

Verified Purchase

"Definitely the bass I've been waiting for years, this is my second piece, it's also black. This is the only bass who can satisfy my music needs, neck pickup just like Fender Precision, bridge pickup like Jaco, midrange button is making a lot of sounds, really serious bass, ergonomic great, that’s it. Also in studio recording, awesome. On the stage... really dominant. One big like for Yamana BBNE 2"

NATHAN EAST SIGNATURE MODEL,5 String, Meticulously HAND-CRAFTED IN JAPAN WITH A MAPLE/MAHOGANY FIVE PIECE NECK AND NECK-THROUGH CONSTRUCTION, STACKED ALNICO V PICKUPS, EXTENSIVE CONTROLS TO ALLOW PRECISE TONE SHAPING AND AN EBONY FINGERBOARD.

5-Piece Neck Through design

The neck through design uses a 5-piece maple and mahogany neck sandwiched between the maple on alder body.

Contoured Body

Both the front and back of the bass body are contoured to provide players with a compact, well fitting instrument that offers greater playing comfort.

Pickups

The stack type pickups are designed in collaboration with Nathan East. The Alnico V pickups include hum-canceling coils.

Indivisual Bridge Pieces

The bridge consists of individual bridge pieces that reduce interference from other string vibration delivering a purer tone.

Active Electronics

Active electronics include a special equalizer circuit based on Nathan East's "Magic Box". The circuit lets you cut off the selected mid frequency at the touch of a switch for precision sound tailoring.
