SOLD! Thanks cephas45 This is the original John Patitucci Signature Bass TRBJP. Im the original owner and bought it from Guitar Center in Orlando in 11/2004. In terms of playability and tone (first fret to the 24th), its the clearest, full sounding and most versatile bass Ive played. I can get traditional P Bass, and Jazz Tones. I also can get all kinds of modern tones. If youre interested in getting into a 6 string to either emulate some of the greats playing upper register leads, melodies, and chords, this is a great way to go (at a great value). Heres a review from Harmony Central: http://www.harmony-central.com/Bass/Data4/Yamaha/TRB_6_John_Patitucci_Signature_Bass-01.html As you can see by the pictures here, its a beauty! Its got a real deep (blue/grey) figured top Understated yet very serious. I was able to talk the price down at Guitar Center because it had scratches on the bottom edge. Some customer had one of those Harley Wallets with chains and sat the bass down on the chains and proceeded to play. I was able to talk the store manager down in price significantly, and Im passing this savings onto the you. I do believe this cosmetic short coming can be sanded and buffed out w/a high grade sand paper, but I never had the time to pursue it. This bass didnt come with a case. Just Put up some more Pics on my personal web site: More PICS! Specs from Yamaha Web Site: http://www.yamaha.com/yamahavgn/CDA...00%26VNM%3DLIVE%26AFLG%3DY%26LGFL%3DY,00.html Im giving TB users first crack at this bass before going Ebay because I firmly believe in this great bass forum. I got this bass from a lead from tim99, and rewarded him pretty nicely. Im asking $1400.00 + Shipping.
