    Great jazz style bass - very well liked here on TB - single coil pickups, great tone, fast neck, light weight (8.7 lbs) - big bang for the buck!

    This thing is clean, in great shape - a few dings from usage, a bit of buckle rash on the back; minor stuff, and the natural finish hides everything. I used the bass on probably 10-15 gigs over the past few years; it's a great 5 string j, but I just have too many 5 string j basses, and I MUST thin the herd!

    I installed a Bass Mods BEQ3-5 3 band EQ; vol/blend/bass/mid/treble, with active/passive push/pull switch on the volume control. Great combination with the single coils - from big bottom to slap - versatile!

    String spacing is 18-19mm at the bridge - just like my Am Std P V bass.

    I will also include the original NE1 Parametric EQ with the bass - sounds fantastic, I just prefer a 3 band eq and the reassurance of the active/passive switch for live gigs.

    Specs from Yamaha are here.

    PRICE: SOLD!

    I owned one of these a few years back. They're fantastic -- the preamp is especially good, and the NE-1 circuit lets you change tones dramatically with just one knob. You really can't get a better fiver for the money!

    Best buy I've seen on a good bass in a long time.

    These are great and highly under rated basses. I played one for a LONG time as my one and only bass. It's tempting to buy this one. If it were Wine Red…

    Fantastic bass bump.

    Hard to tell from the pics, but does this have the string though body bridge? Thanks

    Gaaaaah! I just lost mine a few months ago. I don't have a bass right now. And I am planning on getting another 605. Trying my luck here.

    Guess I was already too late. :(
