Comfortable body with progressive styling

One look at the Yamaha TRBX174 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 cool). You're going to love the way the TRBX174 looks and feels!

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

The Yamaha TRBX174 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!

Great fundamentals..

I had a Fender J-bass stolen from me a while back. My circumstances dictated that I look in the price range of this bass for a replacement, and with many different brands and models to choose from, it came down to an educated guess which one to choose. There are several choices, many of them little more than toys. There seems to be a distinction between "guitar player's basses" and "bass player's basses." This isn't just a matter of the scale of the neck, but in the whole construction. In my experience, Yamaha builds musical instruments of good quality, no matter the instrument. They take the time in each case to match the instrument to its requirements. When I received this bass, I was immediately impressed with how well it matched my stolen Fender Jazz bass so far as quality goes. It has a neck more like a P-bass, but I wasn't thrilled with the narrowness of my J-bass neck anyway. This is a comfortable neck to play, period. The shape, the weight, and the electronics on this bass are designed for a bass player. When I play this bass, it's overall quality impresses me. It's definitely a bass player's bass. For a passive pickup bass, I'm convinced it's the best out there for the price, and a decent bass at any price.
