2 x first gen trb 4 stringers
This thread has the potential to be a real jaw-dropper, so lets not be shy with the pics!
EDIT: That one on the left is a real hottie! I love the colour and the "scooped" section! Very pretty basses indeed, I wouldn't mind a TRB 6 string some day, if I can ever find one with 34" scale (might have the be a TRBJPI)!
sorry chris you can refresh now
yes funny thing is the red one looks really nice but the brown one plays and sounds like a dream, in fact i need to set the intonation on the red one as you can probably see that its not set up.
Do the newer TRB's count? Here's my 1005.
thats a very nice looking bass yu have there, is that an original case or you bought it seperate?
Not original. It's a SKB Freedom.
Here's my 1006
Ok, here goes mine
I tried a new TRB1004 at GC a few months ago, and I was really quite impressed. They seem like a VERY good value. The neck is fast, and the body looks gorgeous. I once owned a BB1500A, and it was also an excellent value.
That's a nice looking bass What is the string spacing on it? Similar to the older BB's at 19mm??
Yeah, my jaw just dropped, look:
Check your eBay messages...
How do those Japanese models compare to the current TRB models?
if you can go with the japanese for playability, construction and feel, go with the new trb range for looks IMO.
Agreed. The Japanese TRBs are superior from a build quality and playability standpoint. The newer ones (made in Korea I think???) look cooler, but the MIJ stuff is still the best....
Here's my TRB 1006.
To show the width at the bottom of the neck:

oooo , i want one sooooo bad.
Anyone want to trade a TRB 1006 for my old practice amp , a roland cube 30 ?
No, but Musician's Friend will trade you a TRB 1006 for $900.
The TRB 1006 is a great six string bass. As are the 1004 and 1005. I'm not a big fan of the fretless one though.
