    A lovely TRB5PII arrived on my doorstep yesterday.
    It looks, feels and sounds like top quality instrument.

    A production Bass of the highest order!
    Only played it in the house so far...but the tones are superb.
    Looking forward to gigging it ( when I'm used to the extra string!)

    Cheers

    If the pics were there, I could congratulate you. Anyway, when you upload the pics, don't close the window until the upload is done. Your pics must be 600 pixels maximum dimension, and can't be any bigger than 150 KB. I suspect you didn't wait until the pic was fully loaded.

    Thanks,

    Not sure there's many more examples of this model on TB.
    There doesn't appear to be too many around period......very few 2nd hand.

    I suppose it is a fairly hefty price for a production bass......but, as I said , the action, fit, feel , tones and attention to detail on this baby are top notch.

    Also, I really dig the piezo too....

    So, that's me set up for now....New Epi rig and now this 5'er.

    I need to change my name to Mr Iva Dunbuying :eek:
    .......after I get that nice Sadowsky Jazz I've been promising myself ;) !!
    Cheers

    That's a great looking bass. I bet she sounds and plays just as sweet also.
