    I have an origional TRB-6P and it is great. I think the II's are about the same.

    They have the tightest low B string I have seen. Don't let the wide fret board scare you either, I adapted in just a couple of days.

    you are gonna love it.

    I've played the bass & it is one of the best Yamaha's on the market. I worked @ Sam Ash for almot 2 yrs & Yamaha's customer service is one of the worst of any company I've ever dealt with. If you deceide to go with one, I hope nothing goes wrong with it!!!

    First thing:thank you dudes
    2nd: costumer service???
    I don't how things work in U.S.A but in Turkey all the customer services sucks.Actually there is no customer services in my city!!!The only way I can get a customer service is that I go to istanbul(1.5 hours by plane[xpensive!] 15 hours by bus[boringg!!]) so ythere's no problem for me coz If there's anything wrong on the construction of the bass(which I think there won't be any problem coz I read about 40 comments about the bass and all says:"perfecto! never created any problems) I would just change it and get a perfect one and if there's aproblem or something that I don't like about the bass I have some luthier ffriends in istanbul which can make your bass PERFECT (by old washburn's neck plays like stingray!)
    So thanks dude
