Might there be a Yamaha RBX 6J club?

    I think that's the right model number...

    This is a Yamaha RBX 6-string bass that is the John Myung signature model. The keyboardist and I were perusing a pawn shop in Texas and came across this bass for $400. If I hadn't just bought a bass, I would have bought it. The keyboardist had me play it to see what I thought. Considering it was sitting on a pawn shop floor, it played and sounded rather good. So he snapped it up. Then he left it with me, so I cleaned it up, replaced the output jack, and put new new strings on it. It's quite a nice bass. 35" scale, beautiful inlays in the neck, quite heavy, but not a deal-breaker.

    It's not my bass, although I smell a "Geri, do you want that bass?" coming. I have absolutely no use for a 6-string, but it's fun to knock around with.
