        Due to a hard to replace broken key on my current bass, my friend was kind enough to lend me his guitar to use in the mean time. While this bass looks nice, I've found that its tone is everything but. During practice I found myself repeatedly adjusting the equalizer to try to find something that works for me. I was never able to get it. The pickups look impressive, but they transmit too much fret buzz. The battery for the active pickups has an easy access cover, which is cool. The looks are nice and the color scheme perfect. But I've found that it simply doesn't have hardly any sustain. Hit a string and you?re left wondering where the sound went. The neck seems short to me, but I'm 6'. I'm not at all impressed by it, but I won?t tell my friend that. I?d rather be playing a no-name guitar I used to play. I'd recommend an ESP F series.

            Getting to the facts!!! This bass is bar none for the price a great deal, like any new bass you get I would recommend getting a local music store to set it up for you if you are a begginer.
            New Strings and and having it ajusted is a wise choice, though out of the box it was ok.

                Comments about Yamaha RBX375 5-String Bass Guitar:

                This bass has excellent action, and the set up was perfect out of the box. More importantly the bass is very quiet, has lots of gain and a very wide and useful set of tone and balance capabilities.

                I've had several good friends with a lot of experience compare this bass to much more expensive insruments and their comments are consistently positive. This is an excellent bass by any standard. At this price point, it is an outstanding instrument.

                The finish is a flat silver which is a bit unusual. Everyone seems to like the finish as it does not show fingerprints, appears very durable and has a professional, understated look.

                Highly recommended.

                  Comments about Yamaha RBX375 5-String Bass Guitar:

                  To wrap it up, this bass will give you the top features necessary to provide almost any style of play that an active player wants. The pickup blending and eq boost/cut are from the god's of rock just for our enjoyment! Buy it!!
                  By far the best 5 string for less than $400 out there. The tones this ax will reward you with are infinite! Love the thumb cut outs on the pups.
                  I bought the blk one to start with, but sent it back for the red one which is stunning. Slight neck adj and 3 frets to level and Wow what a ride. Everything seems to be solid and attention to detail is apparent everywhere. Stays in tune ok with stock strings.
                  I only gave a 9 for total value as no gig bag came with it. Thats the only point I can take away.

                  This bass is a amazing it looks cool, sound great, has cheap price and is something build like a brick-house, this bass is a Must-Have for any pro or starting bassist
                  Active EQ, two massive humbuckers, a thin neck and a wicked paint job and design
                  Yamaha RBX375 has a great quality it's build tough and can make a hard or soft sound.
                  A great quality at a great price, what else to say

                  Alright this is my 3rd bass and my 1st 5 string and as soon as I picked it up I knew it had potential. You can acheive a variaty of sounds with the knobs on the bass (and I would know about sounds I have a Zoom B2.1u) that all are of great quality. The thumb divets in the pickups are amazing to have and the overall appeal of the bass is cool. Although the bass is a bit heavy...well hey it is a 5 string...it is definatly playable.

                  I've recently purchased this bass and immediately used it on a gig..One word..MONSTROUS..it has a great punch and definition that cuts thru in the mix, my color is black and a funny thing is that they say the fingerboard is rosewood, mine looks like ebony..my only gripe is that the battery cover look like it's very easy to break when changing the battery, be careful..All in all this bass rocks.

                  I've been playing bass professionally for over 25 years and this 5-string for 5 years. There isn't a bass I could find- at any price -that was any finer than this one. No need to pay more!

                  Comments about Yamaha RBX375 5-String Bass Guitar:

                  I've owned this bass for about a year now and overall, it's a great bass. It has a wide tonal range, and feels great on stage. Only thing is it is a little heavy and the neck gets a bit sticky after a few songs. I'm sure I could sand it down, but i don't want to ruin the beautiful finish. One thing for sure is that this bass has great looks. i started playing a sorta heavy metal style, which this bass is good for, but as i progressed musically, i started to play a more jazzy/rush style with a lot of melodic runs and harmonies. the neck was just too think and the frets too far apart, but what 5 string isn't. i play with my figers, but i broke my finger and had to play with a pick, and this bass was great for both uses. i've gotten away from the style that this bass was intended for, but for a heavy rocking bass player, this bass is a great instrument for a great price

                  I've been playing on this bass for about 2 years now and it has always sounded AMAZING! It does go through batteries fast, but I bought a couple rechargeables and they last 2-3 times as long as regular 9v's then you recharge them and they are like new! I've only had 1 problem with it, the wires on the 9v snap connectors have broke a couple times, not hard to fix but kinda a pain in the butt.
