    Selling my Yamaha RBX765A bass. It is translucent red and shows off the wood grain beneath the finish very nicely. I have owned this bass since new. It has gigged once and never left the house since. It is a very nice bass, I just like my string spacing closer. Bass plays nice and sounds great with the active pickups. Gold hardware has no pitting and is very shiny. Only thing that has ever been done to this bass is that one of the tuners has been replaced with a Gotoh which is a little darker than the others, but only noticable from the back. Plastic is still on the cover for the pots. $295 shipped with musicians friend gig bag. The bag is a little big since it is a generic Musicians friend bag, but it has never left the house. It has only been used to store the Yamaha.
    Great bass for short money.
    If you decide you want to pick the bass up, we can work out a lower price.

    Not sure if I did this right. Using my daughters ruler, it looks like the spacing at the nut is 9mm and as close to the bridge as I could get it looks like 14mm. I measured center to center of the strings.
     
  14. It's way wider than 14. I'm pretty sure it's 18mm @ the bridge.

    Don't forget, this is a 5er, you said yours is a 4. 14mm is what the rurler is telling me

    You may be right Eric, I just found a reference online that states 19mm. I will check again after work and report back.

    Just measure from B to G at the saddles and divide by 4; that's what the bridge manufacturers do. It's more accurate than trying to measure between two strings. (should actually measure from middle of B string to middle of G string but good luck with that)

    (interested but my budget is in the red; free bump I guess)
