Great Bass, Amazing Value

The Yamaha RBX170 bass guitar is an outstanding value for the modern bassist. The RBX series are Yamaha's best-selling basses, and for good reason. This cool-looking, great-sounding bass gives you a comfortable Yamaha body shape and a fast-action bolt-on maple neck with a smooth-playing rosewood fingerboard. You get strong, punchy tone from the P/J arrangement of split-coil/single-coil pickups. Factor in the solid hardware and a range of great finishes, and you've got an eye-catching and ear-catching bass with the Yamaha RBX170.

Comfortable body with progressive styling

One look at the Yamaha RBX170 electric bass, and you know it means business. A deep cutaway gives you clean access to the higher registers for soloing, while the pronounced upper bout provides balance (and looks totally wicked). You're gong to love the way the RBX170 looks and feels!

P/J pickup arrangement for a universe of great bass tones

The Yamaha RBX170 sports a classic pickup layout: a split-coil in the middle position and a single-coil at the bridge. The Precision-style split-coil serves up the beef, giving you solid, deep fundamentals. the Jazz-style single delivers the growl, with strong mids and highs (particularly if you're strung up with round-wounds). How you combine the pickups is up to you, but one thing's for sure - you've got tons of tonal options!

Yamaha quality, through and through
