    Well, it's time to face the fact that I will never be a 6-string player. I tried, but it's not my thing. So up for grabs is my Yamaha TRB6II that is in pretty much perfect condition. Straight neck, great action, electronics all work as they should, etc.

    This one was made in Japan and the fit / finish are really good. I had a TRB1006 for a while, and the TRB6II feels like a much higher quality instrument. 35" scale, 18mm spacing.

    I've had it about a year and have never gigged it. The previous owner never gigged it, only studio use. The only minor imperfection is some wear in the finish between pickups where the thumb rests, but I wouldn't be able to get it to show up in a photo.

    I put a set of Circle K strings on it and they sound awesome! It really has that grand piano sound on the low strings. Everything else is bone stock. I think the year of mfg is 2001, but not 100% certain. Included is a Yamaha hard case in great condition also.

    It's not a lightweight bass. On my analog scale it's over 10 lbs, but I can't be more precise than that.

    Looking for $1000 shipped.

    The only trades I would consider is maybe an '08 or newer Fender American Standard Jazz or Lakland DJ4. Only looking for a 4-string.

    I believe this bass was sold on the bay. Google Yamaha TRB6II and a link pops up.

    Not MIA, all PMs answered.

    The Yamaha was sold on the bay, but I'm still waiting for payment which isn't going so well. (gotta love the bay)

    The bass will quite possibly be available again in a few days, stay tuned.....

    DakotaBass, youre killing me! I really wish I had the loot! Or a trade? I got a super nice 3006E Prestige. I think I need a wider spacing...I get a little cramped playing certain chord voicings.

    The 18 mm spacing is nice, but it makes for a pretty wide neck on a 6-string. My Lakland 55-01 also has 18 mm spacing and it has a fairly wide neck, but the Lakland feels fine to me. The Yamaha is just too wide for me.
