Back in 2012 Yamaha released a mini web documentary featuring Billy Sheehan talking in depth about his Signature model Attitude Limited III Bass along with a guided tour of the Yamaha factory in Japan. The videos cover all aspects of the construction process from concept to final inspection. So if you missed it when it came out a few years ago this is a great series to watch if you are a fan of Mr.Sheehan, Yamaha basses or just interested in Bass manufacturing. Enjoy.
