5-String Modern Basses | Product code: TRBX305-WH | ID: 216814
5-string electric bass guitar from TRBX300 series that is built around a simple principle – your performance. The perfectly balanced, ultra-comfortable solid mahogany body provides the optimum tonal foundation while the Performance EQ active circuitry provides an instant access to perfectly dialled-in stage-ready tones coupled with the expressive control. The sculpted 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. The bass guitar 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 further fitted with a 600mm-radiu fingerboard made of rosewood. Scale length is 863.6 mm and the nut fret is 43 mm wide, providing fast, comfortable playability for any style. Two YGD designed M3 pickups 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. The instruments features Yamaha’s exclusive Performance EQ active circuit with five performance-tuned full spectrum EQ curves optimized to give instant access to essential sounds along with powerful 2-band master equalization to shape and define the tone. The sound can be further adjusted via Master Volume, Pickup Balanced, Bass and Treble controls. A high-mass die-cast bridge efficiently transfers string vibrations to the body for full, rich tone combined with excellent adjustability and road-tested durability. 18mm string spacing on this 5-string model 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. Yamaha’s metal plate-mounted standard jack socket offers superior durability and easy maintenance. Other features include die-cast tuners and Black Nickel hardware. White colour design.
