    No dents = good deal. I.e., if you like the bass, of course! :)

    I play one and I absolutely love it. They have a great neck, good b string, and sound terrific. You can get a pretty good variety of tones out the TRB. I am surprised they aren't more popular. It really is a nice bass. A little on the heavy side though. Glad you convinced your folks. Enjoy! ;)

    Doing my best Brad Johnson imitation, I really think you could do better. If it were a TRB5P it would be different.

    The price isn't great---unless you really want that bass. Resale on Yamaha is terrible. Which is a good reason to buy one used. From your last post it sounds like you got a boner for a five string. There are lots of good deals out there. Maybe you should shop around. Then if you really like that bass make them an offer less than the asking price.
     
  12. hehe....well like i said im going to look around...but i do want a 5 string :D . . ....ill try it out again... bah dont you hate decisions :eek:
