    This is the condition of the bass:
    s_MLM_v_O_f_59911031_326.
    s_MLM_v_O_f_59911031_1590.
    s_MLM_v_O_f_59911031_6538.
    s_MLM_v_O_f_59911031_364.
    s_MLM_v_O_f_59911031_4552.

    The price is $180.

    I'm really not sure of buying it, it's dirty.

    Is this a good offer? Or is overpriced because the condition?

    Dirty can be cleaned, and not cost anything.

    Dity gears means poor caring. And i really don't want to buy a bad used bass.
    I hay my bass for more than a year and it's like new.

    "more than a year" is next to nothing. RBX765A was made for only a couple of years, 1998-1999 iirc. So it's 13 years old. Dirty 13 years old bass doesn't mean it was mistreated. Maybe neglected for a while. Here in the UK they sell for about 250 pounds in good condition. Local shop has one nearly mint for 299 and I'm considering buying it. 180$ is like 110 pounds, I'd buy it.

    I have a red 765A just like that one. It's a very good instrument IMHO - very nice tone and playability. I don't play it much as I've gone back to 4 strings but that's not the Yamaha's fault.

    Dirty is not a big deal if everything else seems solid.
     
  7. The RBX765A is a very underrated bass in my opinion (and I know many people who will agree with me). I've used mine for many, many shows, an album, a demo, and a handful of small tours. I've had it setup more times than I can recall and it's seen a lot of abuse.

    Mine is still in almost pristine condition compared to that one, but they're still damn good basses. Extremely reliable.

    I bought one of these a few months back for my son for 150.00 with a hard case overall not a bad buy
    I did a search on ebay and the cheapest they sold for was 130.00
    if I remember right and around 250.00 for the upper end

    I mean this: my actual bass (Ibanez) is from 2010. what is really important is that this is a internet buy so i can`t play it.


    whatever, thanks for the advice guys.
