!!! TRADED !!! YAMAHA TRB-5P from the 23rd of August 1995
Etalle, Belgium


Recommended Posts

YAMAHA TRB-5P from the 23rd of August 1995. This model was discontinued in 1996.


Would prefer selling it, but trades are always welcome, especially for a fretless bass 4, 6 or 8 (no octave strings) strings unlined are my preferences.


Simply the best P/J fiver on the market with the extra piezos that you can really use, way far better than my previous BB2025X and to date the best TRB I've ever owned. The Yamaha TRB-5P is still the main bass used by Abraham LABORIEL, there must be a reason...

I'm only selling this terrific P/J fiver because I really have problems with odd numbers basses. I know... My loss is your gain.


The bass has been fully set up professionally by Christophe LEDUC. It has a new battery and has been fitted with a brand new set of Newtone Diamond Stainless Steel Hex Core strings (42 - 60 - 75 - 96 - 120), which fit the bass to perfection.


This fantastic Yamaha will also come with a brand new spare Newtone Diamond Stainless Steel Hex Core strings set (42 - 60 - 75 - 96 - 120), with two high C's, just in case.



What you see is what you get !


Look at the pictures taken under different angles in natural light to see the real condition and the real colour : some knocks, dings and dongs due to its age (almost 25 years), but nothing serious. It has been professionally refretted by a previous owner. The ouput jack has been changed from a barrel one to a Telecaster type, which is much more convenient.


Don't hesitate to ask for more.
