1985 Yamaha PB400RA Precision Bass MIJ (Made in Japan)
From the 1985 Yamaha Japan catalog comes this 80s styled classic. Candy Apple Red finish with a matching headstock and neck plus a black pickguard give this the "Fender Contemporary" vibe. This one weighs 4.1kgs and is the perfect addition to any seasoned bassists collection, or for a guitarist looking to experiment with a good quality first bass.
Reverb.com described them in an article about "Hidden Bass Gems of the 80's and 90's":
"Produced in the 1980s, the Yamaha Pulser basses were more or less direct clones of a Fender P bass from the 1970s. Many of these basses utilized and ash/maple body and neck combination, equipped with a classically voiced pickup to match the overall vibe of this bass.
The basses were well put together, and current pricing from $450USD to $550USD make these basses well worth the cost to own. The design is fairly standard and won’t really set you apart in a crowd, but for anyone seeking a classic-looking and sounding P bass at a reasonable rate, an older Yamaha Pulser is a good one to consider."
