      This bass was ready to play right out of the box. Very minor setup. Played it and got a lot of good comments from fellow musicians. I'm sold on Yamaha. This is an excellent bass.

        Comments about Yamaha TRBX305 5-String Electric Bass:

        Very nice instrument, plays well out of the box. I got it because it was lighter than my Fender Jazz Bass. After years of performing my left shoulder has a constant knot under my shoulder blade. So far so good and sounds wonderful.

          Comments about Yamaha TRBX305 5-String Electric Bass:

          I bought this bass last summer and this is really a great bass guitar to own. I'm a metal player and I would say that this bass is great for metal music. my first bass happens to be a yamaha and now I got this bass. I bought this bass because it has a mahogany(which I'm a fan of). it has a nice beefy sound and the electronics are pretty solid. the treble boost isn't that excessive, but it has a good amount of treble. to give you a punchy sound. I fine the 5-way tone switch to be pretty unique because it has a certain mode for all types of players. rather if you play bass with your fingers or play bass with a pick, there's a tone mode for every player. it also sounds awesome with effects. I should also mention that this bass has a smooth low action for comfortable playing. If you play metal and want something a little different, definitely check out this bass.

            I use this bass for a worship band, and it gives me nice options. The equalizer switch is amazing. Great balance of the instrument. For funk/slapping its unbeatable.

              Love this bass! Practically ready to play out of the box. A simple truss rod adjustment and it was ready to go. Solid electronics with excellent tone and feel. The string spacing is a little wider than other 5 string models I've tried, making it perfect for fingerstyle techniques.

                  It's a very comfortable for a five string bass,
                  It's lighter then the other basses that I own.
