    For sale my Yamaha TRB-6P Made in Japan, with electronic upgrade to a Pattitucci model + Piezo. I fell in love with the look and sound of this bass but my not that big hands brought me to reality, I really tried to play it but never adjusted to a 6 strings playing.
    Overall in good conditions, there are various dings including a discoloration in the middle of the neck ( back ), it's been refinished so none of the dings can be felt in playing areas. Neck is straight, no fret buzzing and action quite low, a slap and tap monster.
    Specs are:
    Mahogany body
    Highly flamed maple top
    5 pieces maple/mahogany, neck-thru
    34" scale
    19mm string spacing at the bridge
    Dual truss rod.
    Controls are: Master volume, pan, treble, bass, mids (3 positions), Piezo dial in pot. Comes with a non original hard case.
    Price is [DEL]$1350[/DEL] [DEL]$1250[/DEL] .[DEL]$1200[/DEL] $1100 Shipped Conus.Not really looking for a trade unless you have an OLD Status SII headless.
    More pictures coming later...

    The electronic upgrade was professionally done by the Yamaha dealer at the time of purchase upon request of the original owner.

    Man I wish I had the dough for this. I am limited to $1100 for my next toy so I may have to look out for a TRBII.

    I have a deal to do on bass I was looking for, so I'm dropping the price to $1250 shipped Conus. If my deal goes, the price will go up to the original.
    This is a great price to begin with, TRB-6P are not very easy to find especially with this electronic. I was advised by Bass Northwest store in Seattle that these sell for $1400-1500 with hard case.

    On my bathroom scale it's between 10 and 10.5 lbs.
    I'd say pretty much what expected from a tone monster like this. I have to say though that it balances very well.

    LAST price bump $1100 shipped ConUS, if it doesn't sell I'll keep it. It's really a one of a kind 6 strings bass.

    It's been professionally set up just 3 months ago, plays with a super low action with no fret buzz, fantastic!
