1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

My new arrival!

    Ok I think I got a decent deal on this but feel free to rain on the parade if not, no hard feelings. Yamaha TRB6 made in Japan all original, even a Yamaha hard case..$750. Damn I have been playing it constantly and feel like I am cheating on my XL2!

    Too many strings for my taste, but that is a very solid bass. Price sounds good too. Congrats!

    You got a killer deal. I've been lusting after the TRB6's for a while.

    That one is just gorgeous. Post some more pics when you get a chance.

    Yamaha is the only company I know of that got the string spacing right on their six string contra basses. I'd sure love to own one. Congrats!

    I believe that you can't go wrong with Yamaha. No matter what the pricepoint.
