  2. The Yamaha RBX series is their "entry level" series, IIRC. Yammers are sweet basses, and highly under rated. I checked MusiciansFriend.com and their 4 string RBX (I'm assuming it's a four) range from $129 (RBX 264) up to $499 (RBX 760)

    It seems that the higher the number, the more expensive they are. I could be wrong, but my guess is that a RBX 550 would be somewhere in the $300 price range.

    I've got a Yamaha BBG5A and I love it. Very good basses for a very reasonable price.

    Edit: I just found some more RBX series basses, and I don't think the numbers have anything to do with price now... Yamaha is very confusing.

    Have you checked it out on Yamaha.com?
  3. Ok, after a quick jump over to Yamaha dot com, they do not have the RBX 550 listed. They may have discontinued that style.

    Can you describe it or post a picture?

    The RBX550 is kinda' similar to the current RBX270 or
    RBX170 (Agathis body)...two cutaways, passive P+J pups,
    3 controls (V-V-T ?). The headstocks differ (4-in-line vs 2+2).

    The `550's cutaways are a bit more sculpted, while the `270's
    have rounded edges throughout and the "E.D." lower bout :p.

    EDIT: The 550 has 22 frets, the 270/170 - 24.
