    Is a Yamaha Fretless worth upgradring
    pegs,bridge, pickups etc. It was a gift to get me to start playing again, Its been over a decade :-(
    RBF250F looks like the series number.
     
  2. depends..

    What is the overall condition of the bass ?
    it's always nice to have a so-caled ' project bass ', but if it needs too much work.. :(

    b.t.w. it's RBX250F ;)

    Yep RBX250F is model #, like new condition,back body,inline frets,not sure of neck wood.
    Bridge and pegs, look and feel cheap.Pickups i presumme are stock,but havent open to check.

    If Bridge and Pegs are step one I would like black
    if possible any ideas?
     
  4. good solid bridge like this one :
