Yamaha TRB5p ii

Recommended Posts

Toe in the water. New bass means I am not much playing this. It does sound awesome, really very good indeed and as good as any 5 string I have had, and I have had a few! Well made and finished. Piezo pickup adds extra dimension of presence. There are a couple of marks to the finish, localised chips only, but otherwise great condition. Nice neck grain and other spiffing features.

Based junc 11 of M25.

• Scale length: (889mm) 35”

• Pickups: Two Alnico V double coils, piezo pickups in bridge

• Bridge: Brass BPZ-7 type with five piezo-loaded saddles/string anchors
