**,SOLD ** Yamaha TRB4 MK1

Recommended Posts

Hi All 

Selling my Yammy TRB4 MK1.  I am pretty crap at models,eras, MK1/MK2 and so on 🤔 so please feel free to correct me should I be just plain wrong!? 

Now that's out of the way.....

I feel the pics capture the bass really well. It is in, I would  say 8/10 condition wise but that is subjective. It is a truly great Japanese bass with some clever tweaks available under the control plate. The stacked j pickups are very strong and punchy regardless of what tones you want to dial in. VOL/BLEND/BASS/3 WAY SELECTABLE MIDS/TREBLE configuration, mids adjustable further with trim pots. One piece Ash I think weighing in at just shy of 9lbs nice unobtrusive weight. Also a slap cut for those inclined to such trickery. 

A few small dings as shown in pics but kept in its original Burgundy Yamaha branded hard case from new. Beautiful player! 

Any questions fire away

Nice. I'm no expert either but I think this is the original version. 4s were/are quite rare and, from what I remember, a killer slap bass. 

If you like that sort of thing of course....

What a beauty! Yeah defo a mkI.  The IIs have soapbar pups where as all the Is had jazz pups. 

This is probably the first 4 string I've seen for sale from the original series.

Top quality Japanese craftsmanship and killer tones. I had a 4 and a 5 string II and loved both
