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 offers more efficient transfer of string vibration throughout the body, for outstanding sustain and resonance that brings every note to life.
Alnico magnet pickups tuned to deliver classic BB vintage tone, slightly updated to provide a brighter sound that cuts through in live performance situations.
The latest BB400 models are equipped with one Tone control and two Volume controls for versatile sound shaping.
BB400 models feature our Vintage Plus Light bridge, which allows stringing through the bridge or body. Strings pass through the body at a 45-degree angle, which places less stress on the strings than traditional, vertical through-body stringing, while efficiently transferring string vibration to the body. In 5-string models the bridge is equipped with an offset low B string.
Long-scale strings are recommended when stringing through the bridge and super long-scale strings are recommended when stringing through the body.
The latest BB models feature a slightly thinner neck than previous BB basses, improving playability and feel for both modern and traditional bassists.
