Yamaha Billy Sheehan Signature Model
Based on the classic BB414 body style, the new four-string model features a unique woofer pickup that Sheehan designed with Yamaha's guitar builder, John Gaudesi.
Aesthetic details include black nickel hardware and a black metallic finish.
Known as adynamic bassists, Sheehan made his name with Mr. Big and David Lee Roth and has had an active solo career. Over the next few years, he plans to continue recording, go on tour and make special clinic appearances.
Sheehan's current Signature model, the ATT LTD II, will also remain in Yamaha's product lineup and will be available in new colors, including Black and Lava Red.
The BB714BS (MSRP: $1,099) is shipping now.
