    Basslines, badass 2, and different tuners. Anyone know what they are? They're very precise. They say made in Germany and there's an S on them. Anyway...the precision volume knob only works in one little position close to full volume. Otherwise it plays and sounds great. This is my first pj. I finally understand what's so great about these. Very versatile. Once I get the pot fixed, this thing's gonna be a beast. It sounds punchy and huge as is. I wasn't gonna get it cuz sparkly red isn't my preferred bass color, but it was too good to pass up.

    I bet that was a good score, somebody spent way more on parts than that thing could ever be worth. I have had a couple RBXs and they were all great basses. Really consistent for entry level stuff.
     
  4. My first fretless was a 270. I thought it sounded crappy until my teacher started playing it and I was blown away at the quality of the entry level Yamaha basses. I've been sold ever since.

    They come and go. I'm downsizing. This is my one and only for a while.

    Just restrung with ti flats. This thing is fantastic. I'm very impressed. The red is even growing on me.
