    Hi bassdude1.

    Why would you be wondering if P-Bass hardware will fit on your RBX170?

    From what I've read on another forum, Yamaha makes a darn good bass!

    In fact every Yamaha-made product I've encountered so far has been excellent!

    Not quite as epic as the "crons" post! Does it should be so!

    I think he gets the award for being the youngest TB-er, as far as I know at least.

    I have the same bass you're talking about and especially with you being 11 years old, you don't need to change anything in it. After i'm able to create a steady flow of cash coming into my pockets, i'll get a new one and THEN i plan on upgrading this one. At your age, you're not gonna need something spectacular. And FWIW, there is also more to basses than just Fender. WAAAYYYYYYYYY more..

    I started playing when I was ten. My first bass was a junky short scale les paul copy.

    My second bass was a cort precision copy. I modded the heck out of it! I learned a lot about the mechanics and electronics of bass guitars in general by working on my bass.

    If you're looking at putting Fender hardware on your bass, do a little research first, but go for it! I'm not sure if Fender machine heads will fit, but I doubt it. I think the shafts are a lot smaller on your Yamaha. The bridge will probably work - I believe both the Yamaha and the Fender mount with 5 screws in the same places. I wouldn't mess with that, though - you won't notice much difference.

    On the other hand, you've got a bass with a precision pickup and a jazz pickup. Go pickup shopping! Get some parental assistance, but if you can, get a soldering iron and do the work yourself. There's plenty of people here that can walk you through whatever you need help with!

    Repair and modification is a big part of learning about the bass. Don't let all the doodie heads on this board keep you from learning!
