Designed In Collaboration with Nathan East

The BBNE2 was developed and designed in collaboration with infamous bassist, Nathan East. Nathan East has long been a prominent figure in modern music, touring with some of the biggest names music has to offer. He is renowned for being versatile but articulate with his playing style, playing with a range of different bands and artists. Revered as one of the best and most versatile bass players in the world, Nathan East has played alongside the likes of Phil Collins and Eric Clapton. Working in collaboration with Yamaha, Nathan East has produced the BBNE2, a custom designed signature model part of the BB series that delivers a warm yet articulate tone.

Design and Electronics

The BBNE2 follows the shape and design of other BB series guitars with its stylish double-cutaway contoured body constructed from Maple and Alder, maximising resonance and helping to produce the thick, warm tone the BBNE2 produces. The BBNE2 features a neck through design comprised of a 5-piece maple and mahogany neck sandwiched between the body. The contoured design of the body is to ensure maximum comfort for the player. Additionally, the BBNE2 features active electronics with a special equaliser circuit based on Nathan East’s ‘Magic Box’. This circuit gives you the ability to cut off the selected mid frequency for added precision and control.

Unique Bridge Design

One of the most unique features of the BBNE2 is the design of the bridge of the instrument. The bridge features individual bridge pieces which help to minimises any crossed vibrations from other strings. This results in a purer and cleaner tone, minimising any mistakes or wrong notes.

Custom Pickups

The BBNE2 features two sets of pickups, The Alnico V Humbucker pickups and custom designed slack type pickups. The Alnico V Humbucker pickups produce a warmer tone, while the construction helps to minimise any feedback. The custom slack type pickups were designed in collaboration with Nathan East, providing the perfect tone for Jazz and Blues players.
