“My (main) bass is an [Ovation Magnum](http://equipboard.com/items/ovation-magnum). Funnily enough, I’ve been using a Yamaha BB too. They told me – and they might have been saying a load of bollocks – that it’s been spun around in a machine so the molecules point a certain way. It doesn’t look much, but it really has got a very full-bodied sound, it’s very exact. It’s quite possible they were going, ‘I told that Jah Wobble, 'They spin this round…' and you know what, he believed me!’” - [Jah Wobble](http://www.bassguitarmagazine.com/interviews/invader-of-the-heart/).more
Billy Sheehan of Winery Dogs and Mr. Big has used Yamaha basses for the majority of his career. Before the collaboration of Sheehan and Yamaha to build the "Attitude" series of basses, he played on a number of Yamaha BB Bass Guitars including a pink/purple one used for his tour with David Lee Roth and his signature series BB, the Yamaha BB714BS Bass. http://www.vintageguitar.com/wp-content/uploads/04-SHEEHAN2.jpgmore
