5-String Modern Basses | Product code: TRBX305-CAR | ID: 216815
5-string electric bass guitar from TRBX series with perfectly balanced, ultra-comfortable solid mahogany “Modern Bass” body that provides the optimum tonal foundation. Its body features a mass-optimized 3D design for the optimum balance between tone and comfort coupled with perfect weight distribution. The neck design combines a fast, ultra-comfortable profile with 5-pc maple/mahogany laminated construction for outstanding stability and excellent tone. It uses a precision fitted bolt-on neck joint for maximum adjustability and clear, punchy tone. Developed through hundreds of hours of play-testing, the refined neck joint shape perfectly balances strength, vibration transfer and upper-fret access. The neck is fitted with a rosewood fingerboard with 10” radius and 24 frets. Scale length is 863.6 mm, nut width is 43 mm. The bass guitar is equipped with YGD designed M3 pickups which feature oversized pole-pieces and ceramic magnets for a clear, powerful tone with incredible definition and depth. The hum-cancelling design ensures the performance is clean and noise-free while the integral thumb-rest provides unrivalled playability. Featured Yamaha's exclusive Performance EQ active circuit with five performance-tuned full spectrum EQ curves is optimized to give instant access to essential sounds along with powerful 2-band master equalization to shape and define the tone. Sound can be adjusted and shaped via Master Volume, Pickup Balancer, Bass and Treble controls and Performance EQ switch. The instrument further features a high-mass die-cast bridge that efficiently transfers string vibrations to the body for full, rich tone combined with excellent adjustability and road-tested durability. 19mm string spacing offers outstanding playability for technical slap or finger styles. Straight string pull from nut to machine head eliminates lateral tension, providing superior tuning stability and reducing overtones, while Yamaha's metal plate-mounted standard jack socket offers superior durability and easy maintenance. Candy Apple Red colour design.
