    ok, ive done lots of research on this bass but i cant find two thing: what the heck are the controls and is it active or passive??? one website says its passive, the other says its passive with "NE-1 parametric EQ" but which is right??? the yamaha site isnt too clear on this either. hopefully one of you guys have played one of these and can tell me. thanks!

    Ok... heres what I figured out when I was playing one at guitar center.

    The bass has a volume and tone pot, a pickup selector, and it was either an active/passive switch, or just a simple boost switch. This bass does NOT have an EQ. So yeah... I dunno, I have the RBX760, and i like aspects of both the RBX76x, and the RBX77x, but i wish they would put those aspects together (such as the active EQ, with the boost switch, and the individual saddle bridge, etc).

    cool, thanks for answering me. yeah im kinda disappointed theres no onboard eq too :(

    any idea what kind of boost it was? was it like a mid boost/cut thing? i like the idea of that.
