    Guys, fantastic forum!

    This is my very first post, and I was hoping you could help me with some feedback on the Yamaha BB604. I have read good things about this bass on most sites I’ve visited.

    However, I’m keen to know from current owners/players of Yamaha basses:
    - Are there any negative issues that I should be aware of before purchasing the BB604 bass?
    - Does the extra price justify the purchase of a TRB1004 instead?

    Thanks in advance for your advice. Much appreciated.

    People tend to rave on the BB604. I played one and was quit impressed. It all comes down to what pickup combination you are looking for.

    I had a BB604 for a couple years, and very much regret selling it. Awesome value.

    It had a wide variety of sounds, and the always great Yamaha neck and build.

    The real secret is the Nathan East EQ. The most useful tone shaping feature out there. Highly underrated.

    I often thought that with a pickup upgrade, which it didn't really even need, say to a set of Dimarzio Jazz pickups, it would be quite possibly the best bang for buck bass ever.
