    Well i got her :D

    It took me a while to get a good sound out of it, im still not sure what controls are what. ill get there. The action is rather high, and theres alot of fret clack, so i cant really play it too hard until i get that fixed.

    Anyway here she is with all her other freinds and happy owner. I wont post the actual pic in my psot because its rather large. Im sorry to anyone who doesnt like the color oragne, because theres alot of it in the pics :D

    Ive decided to name her chloe :)

  7. Congrats on the TRB, Kirby.

    She's beautiful. BTW, I love that color! ;)

    I'm thinking of getting a TRB for my next bass.

    Post a review when you're familiar with her.

    Good luck.

    Happy Halloween. :cool:

    She sounds awsome. It took me about an hour to get a good sound out of her. Ive got her on middle pickup, 50% bass, 50% mids and no treble suprisingly :eek: Ive screwed around with alot of the setting on my amp though. I move the blend to the back pickup and i get a sound really really similar to jacos.

    She sounds awsome, just a bit of fret clack but thats easy fixed.

    She looks heavy, but its rather light compared to my other bass. No scratches anywhere. I think its a 5 piece neck. 6 neck bolts, gold hardware looks amazing. Its a beast, and its gunna take alot to damage this thing. The Abalone inlays and "YAMAHA' brand writing up the top looks awsome.

    Shes a keeper :)
