Hello all,

I bought this on Basschat just before Christmas as an attempt to acquaint myself with five-string playing. Alas, I’ve decided it’s not for me after 35 years playing four strings. Old dogs, new tricks etc.

Its a Yamaha TRBX505, mahogany body, maple / mahogany five-piece neck, 34” scale with 18mm string spacing, and a 43mm nut. Weighs 3.9kg on my digital luggage scales. It’s active with three band EQ, master volume and pick up blend, plus a switch to move between passive and active mode.

It had a professional set up and fret dress in December, plus the original plastic nut was replaced in February with a much better quality bone nut by my go-to local luthier. 

Other than that it’s in much the same condition as when I bought it - a few small superficial dings on the body edges, and a couple of shallow marks on the back of the neck, but nothing that affects playing at all. I’ve tried to show them in the pics. 

Thanks to lockdown, I’ve only played it at home so far pottering about in my front room.

Its wearing D’Addario Chromes in the photos but I’ll restring it back to the brand new D’Addario nickel roundwounds that I bought for it originally (45-130 off the top of my head but I’ll check the pack) They’ve literally had a few hours playing time.

Comes with a clean basic padded gigbag too. 

I think £295 posted or £275 collected is reasonable. Happy to do local socially-distanced meet up as long as it’s not breaking any lockdown restrictions. 

Cheers 

Chris
