    Who owns one of these? Is the string spacing 3" from the B to the G strings, or something else?

    I'm seriously considering a BB615; seems like the guy who sold me my RBX765 on eBay doesn't want to ship it to me, so if I can get my money back, I think that's what I'll do.

    The stringspacing at the bridge is 18mm. The nut wide is 45mm. The weight of my bass is 4,2 kg.

    Read a review in the British Guitar Player mag.
    Generally very good. Great value for money.
    The only real complain was that the fiver were slightly neck heavy but far from unplayable.

    Hope things sort out with the RBX.

    Cheers!

    With a strap lock mounted and a good strap the bass balances better than any 5/6 String Warwick and light weight Fender. The sound is absolutely amazing and the workmanship is perfect. Yamaha has the best quality control by far from all mass producers. For 400 Euro you will not get any better playing and sounding bass. This bass sits really good in the mix. Definately no high end or vintage bass but exactly the universal tool for the working bassist. Even Pro's like it!!! (Ask Lisa Stansfields bassist!)

    The RBX is finally on its way; the owner had "personal problems" that he had to take care of. I must be heartless to be so annoyed.
