    Lightweight construction yet heavy, sustaining tone.

    The RBX4 A2 defies the conventional wisdom that the more uniform and heavy the material, the better the sound. Yamaha has challenged this concept with an advanced technology called Alternative Internal Resonance, or AIR. AIR combines lightweight and resonant softwoods between harder tonewoods creating an instrument loaded with sustain and tone while maintaining an ultra lightweight construction. Already proven in the RGX line, Yamaha now offers this sustain and tone in the RBX line with the RBX4 A2 bass guitar.


    • Bolt-on construction
    • AIR body
    • Maple neck
    • Rosewood fingerboard
    • 24 frets
    • 34" scale
    • 10-5/8" radius
    • Die-cast bridge
    • 2 Y.A.S.H. custom shop designed single coil pickups
    • Front volume, rear volume, master tone controls (LED lit pickup indicator and selector)

    Killer sound without killing your shoulder. Order today.

    Better then what your paying for

    By Delaybass

    from Long Beach CA

    Just got this last week with some of my tax money and it is worth way more then this clearance price. I have been playing 11 years and have had a handful of basses over that time and this is one of the best 2 I have owned. Good deal of different tones can be pulled out, mainly for me an aggressive/treble tone, but many more possible. Action did come a bit high but nothing that cant be fixed easy, get it while you can.

    Old guys, lissen up!

    By shep-cInN4

    from Madison Alabama

    I have been looking for a light weight bass, as my basses of choice are a 63 p-bass 4 string, and a warrior soldier 5 string. Both are heavy. I have back problems (hey, I' 55 years young, high milage) from time to time. I play in praise band every Sunday and practice Tuesdays, and stand during those times. The concept of a light weight bass is appealing as one gets older. I tried the Yamaha, and as is true for Yamaha across the board, this thing is total BANG FOR THE BUCK.Other tahn the thing looking very "guitar hero", and feeling more plastic than wooden (I love the feel of my p'bass), this is a great deal. The pick ups have a nice, somewhat unique tone, that I have found very easy to dial in a sweet, clean sound. If you are a beginner or pro looking to leave the vintage stuff at home, check this bass out. This sale price is a steal. Your back will be thanking Yamaha.

    Easily the Best value for under $400

    By Tucknfoldman

    Ask me a question

    This bass rocks. It is light and well built. the pick ups are quiet but clear. For Jazz this axe is really top notch. I have some fenders and it is equally good and better than my buddy's Schector, Squire, Ibanez and Washburn. Do not mistake light for fragile. It is built well. and I can play it alot longer than my thunderbird or jazz bass....my shoulders appreciate that difference.

    Plays great....looks?

    By Skylinealx

    from New York

    Yamaha has a good reputation of making quality instruments, this bass is a great example. It plays very very well, suits any kind of music. The only problem I think is that it looks like something you plug into a Nintendo Wii not a amp.

    Pimp bass!

    By SkinneeBass

    from Hawaii

    An incredible buy! This baby has incredible tone, and is versatile. Looks great and sounds incredible. It is light compared to a p-bass, but not the lightest thing around.

    Really comfortable-sounds like an ANGRY Jazz Bass

    By Tripper

    from Austin, TX

    I have to say this thing is great. It's like a really angry Jazz Bass in tone - aggressive, stronger mids, but still can do pretty much every sound a Jazz can handle with a little clever volume and tone knob wrangling.

    Worth the Price

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    For 250, you know your not getting an A class bass, from day one I had this buzzing sound with the frets so I gotta get the action fixed and that should fix that right out, this bass has amazing features but all and all not for metal or heavy music, yeah it can work for it and was a major upgrade from my ESP LTD AX 104. Its a great bass for beginners or someone who wants a cheap upgrade from a beginners bass

    Great Bass, Great Bargain

    By Snab

    from West Coast

    I got a black one at the lower price. I had some interest in this bass already, and when I saw that they were blowing out the black ones, I got one. It's a very nice instrument, kind of like a Jazz with 24 frets. The pickups are big and beefy sounding, and I've been able to get a nice low action. Mine isn't terribly light at about 7-3/4 lbs, but it's light enough. I've had quite a few nice basses, including MIJ and MIA Fenders, and this one fits right in with them in terms of quality.

    Couldn't be happier

    By sdman-caL70

    from Spearfish, SD

    This Bass does everything I need it to do; it's very playable and sounds great. I couldn't believe the low price...when I ordered it, I didn't know what to expect, but the Yamaha RBX4 A2 far exceeded my expectations.
