Hey all, I just picked up a newsed trans black Yamaha TRBX 505 (although it is more of a solid mat black finish) this evening for $300cdn! It has hardly been touched. This is a very nice bass for the money - very solid and nice construction. I also like to the look of the 505. I have read good reviews on these basses and am anxious to get it setup. I always strip my "new" basses down and give them a good cleaning and ensure the screws/nuts are snug. I was happy to see that the fret board did not turn my cleaning cloth black (rosewood)! I have had this happen on a few other "lower" priced basses I have owned. Anyone own a 505? What do you think of it?
