    Hi everyone,

    Bass newbie here. I'm looking to get my first bass guitar, and ran into someone who's selling a Yamaha RBX500R.

    I did some research, but here isn't a lot of info out there. Has anyone actually played one? If so, what are your thoughts?

    According to the Yamaha Japan website:

    Release date: 1987
    Year Discontinued: 1990
    Price at launch: 48,000 yen
    Color: Black and White, Fainreddo
    Body / Neck Structure: Bolt (scarf joint)
    Scale: 860mm
    Fingerboard: Rosewood
    Ares fingerboard: 250R
    Frets: 22
    Body: Basswood
    Neck: Maple
    Peg: Chrome
    Bridge: RB-STC
    Pickup: "YBS-F1P"×1、"YBS-F1J"×1
    Control: 1 volume, 1 tone balancer

    P.S: The picture is off of the website too.

    Nice basses, very well made and they have really awesome necks. There is a 5 string in the TB classifieds at a good price.
