Overview

Attitude’s low-end is powerful and bold, yet tight and controlled. The highs are clear and musical and the mid drives with a power rarely heard. The latest technology, including our spline jointed body and exclusive ARE and IRA wood treatments together with newly designed pickups and a totally reworked neck joint make this bass something else. And with Billy’s involvement every step of the way, playability is like no other guitar. It’s clearly an Attitude, but it’s an Attitude like you’ve never heard it before.

Pickups and Electronics

Billy’s signature sound comes from a custom woofer pickup developed by YGD (Yamaha Guitar Development). Combining its heavy, powerful low-end and solid fundamental with a DiMarzio designed pickup at the bridge position delivers an incredible tonal range and a strong presence within the band. While stereo output jacks provide separate outputs for the front and rear pickups, mono output is also available. A high cut switch in the front pickup tone control boosts bass output from the front pickup.

Miter Bolting Neck Joint

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 efficiently transfers string vibration throughout the body with little loss. This delivers greater body resonance making each note come alive.

Spline Joint

This body structure makes Attitude LTDIII far more resonant than conventional 2 or 3-piece body instruments. Vibrations are transferred easily through the body for an immense, vibrant and loud tone that is unmistakably Attitude.
