    I just bought a used Yamaha TRBJP John Patitucci 6-string and I'm having trouble figuring out what all the knobs do. Can someone please tell me?

    Also, I find the tone to be somewhat dry, does anyone who has this bass feel the same? Or if you did and fixed it, what setting do you use? I was thinking of having someone install a new internal preamp (Mike Pope), would this fix the problem?

    I haven't had the chance to play one, but from the pictures, it's hard to imagine that that it's anything other than: two larger ones on top are volume and pickup blend, while the three smaller ones are treble, midrange, and bass boost/cut. Yours has the same 5 knobs as the current model, right?
