    Hey everybody,

    I decided that my new bass will be a six string, either the RBX6JM or the Ibanez BTB406.

    I know that the BTB is a great bass, but I like what Myung plays, and my band is going to do get a bit like Dream Theater, with many tapping sequences, so I thought that RBX would be the choice for me...

    Please let me know your opinions, and thank you very much in advance !

  2. When you buy Yamaha, you get a lot of bass for your money. But there are always exceptions so try out a bunch of 'em.
  3. I've never played the John Myung series, but I own the RBX260F and the RBX765A, and they're both fine instruments. Well, the 260's ok, but it's pretty cheap too, great for the money though. I just looked at the John Myung one on the Yamaha website, that's some sweet looking bass.

    Make sure that you play the John Myung before you buy it.

    The string spacing on it is very tight.

    Tighter than my Soundgear 6.
