Billy Sheehan's Signature Bass

What do you get with a Yamaha Billy Sheehan Attitude Limited 3 4-string bass guitar? You get powerful, bold low end with clear, musical highs and mids you never knew were there. Billy has trusted Yamaha for his tone for years and had his hand in every aspect of designing this latest Attitude bass with a spline-jointed body, newly designed pickups, and a new neck joint, giving you a bass with fierce tone and fiery playability. Get great bass tone with the Yamaha Billy Sheehan Attitude Limited 3 4-string bass guitar.

Yamaha Billy Sheehan Attitude Limited 3 4-string Bass Guitar at a Glance:
  • Yamaha's own custom woofer pickup tone
  • DiMarzio- and Sheehan-designed Will Power pickup
  • Billy's tone and Yamaha's innovation give you one great-sounding bass
Yamaha's own custom woofer pickup tone

A custom woofer pickup developed by Yamaha Guitar Development engineers fuels Billy's signature sound. It combines a powerful low end and solid fundamental with a DiMarzio-designed pickup at the bridge position, delivering an incredible tonal range and making sure your tone stands out from the rest of the band. And for dialing in exactly what you want from the custom woofer, a high cut switch for the front pickup tone control boosts bass output from the front pickup only - talk about tonal options!

DiMarzio- and Sheehan-designed Will Power pickup

The Will Power middle pickup on the Attitude has a broader magnetic field than other pickups and gives more punch to individual notes and harmonic overtones to everything you play. Because Billy Sheehan has used the original DiMarzio Model P and Model One bass pickups for many years, DiMarzio has worked with him to make modifications for a pickup that gives him (and you) great, growly lows; magnificent mids; and lilting highs for a balanced, finished tone.

Billy's tone and Yamaha's innovation give you one great-sounding bass

When Billy joins us here at Sweetwater for GearFest, we always look forward to hearing him rock the tone that his Yamaha Attitude puts out. The latest Attitude brings together Billy's years of playing and experienced ear for tone and Yamaha's dedication to using technology to give you the best-sounding, most playable instruments you can find. The Attitude Limited 3 features a spline-jointed body for increased resonance and undergoes Yamaha's A.R.E. and I.R.A. treatments, giving you a solidly made instrument that plays like an old friend from the first note. For rig flexibility that you just don't get from the average bass guitar, you have stereo output jacks for separate front and rear pickup outputs, and you can still harness the Attitude's power and massive bass tone with a mono output, if that's all you need.

Yamaha Billy Sheehan Attitude Limited 3 4-string Bass Guitar Features:
  • Yamaha's A.R.E. and I.R.A. processes give you great tone and playability right out of the box
  • Yamaha custom woofer and DiMarzio Will Power pickups for awesome, balanced tone
  • Individual outputs for each pickup give you rig flexibility
  • Controls include front volume, front tone, rear volume, and woofer hi cut switch to dial in just what you want
Great bass is all in the Attitude!
