Back of the Guitar has Light Scratches
Billy Sheehan’s legendary Attitude is reborn. Hand-crafted in Yamaha Music Craft, Attitude Limited 3 features Billy’s sound taken to a new level, with refined characteristics. Available in sensational Sonic Blue and Attitude classic Black.
Attitude’s low-end is powerful and bold, yet tight and controlled. The highs are clear and musical and the mid drives with a power rarely heard. The latest technology, including our spline jointed body and exclusive ARE and IRA wood treatments together with newly designed pickups and a totally reworked neck joint make this bass something else. And with Billy’s involvement every step of
the way, playability is like no other guitar. It’s clearly an Attitude, but it’s an Attitude like you’ve never heard it before.
Billy’s signature sound comes from a custom woofer pickup developed by YGD (Yamaha Guitar Development). Combining its heavy, powerful low-end and solid fundamental with a DiMarzio designed pickup at the bridge position delivers an incredible tonal range and a strong presence within the band. While stereo output jacks provide separate outputs for the front and rear pickups, mono output is also available. A high cut switch in the front pickup tone control boosts bass output from the front pickup.
Miter bolting holds the neck closer and tighter to the body fusing these two separate components into one. Compared to a conventional bolt-on joint, miter bolting efficiently transfers string vibration throughout the body with little loss. This delivers greater body resonance making each note come alive.
This body structure makes Attitude LTDIII far more resonant than conventional 2 or 3-piece body instruments. Vibrations are transferred easily through the body for an immense, vibrant and loud tone that is unmistakably Attitude.
A big, thick neck features jumbo frets from frets 1-16 to produce outstanding sustain. The neck is held to the bass body with 4 screws to create a solid bond and tone. The neck also features scallops from frets 17 through 21 and a slap cut ground into the neck that provides greater string access.
The solid brass bridge captures and transmits string vibration directly to the body, creating great low-end tone and attack.
The Hipshot tuner drops the "E" string down a whole step to "D" with the flick is a lever. A gear adjustment provides precision tuning.
