    Comments about Yamaha TRBX305 5-String Electric Bass:

    I really wanted a Stingray but just couldn't afford one at this time. Seeing the Yamaha and the larger pickups really peeked my interest. For recording this is an inexpensive bass worthy of my purchase. The features are pretty well thought out for a guitar player searching for sounds by ear. Yamaha added features for us guitar players too. Frets are clean and the intonation pretty spot on. Love the feel and the weight.

        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.

                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.
