    I just got the JP-I today i love it. very easy bass to play, even if it needs a good setup and a new set of strings. i'd love to stay and chat but i have a bass to play and class in the morning. :D

    My TRB5P is sweet. These basses are either underrated or unknown as the quality matches anything I've ever played. It's a slap machine too.
     
  6. Congrats! That's a great bass. I sold my TRB late last year and am regretting that move. Now I'm in the market for another one.

    Here's mine...
    trb4ii-rt2.

    Having got over my original gripe about the poor setup (I realised "hey, just fix it, y'know?") I've really warmed to it a lot. Seems very well made, quite a versatile range of sounds and most important of all, it looks nice. :D The back of the neck is 3 pieces of flame maple with rosewood (?) pinstripes, making it a particularly good looking bass from the rear! I quite like having a bass with a 35" scale as well, even though it's just a 4-string (I dunno if I'll ever count beyond that with my big clumsy hands) it's nice to try a B on it.

    It looked pretty good in purple, too. Only whinge apart from the poor initial setup is it seems a bit on the heavy side, but not overly so.

    Chris.
