  1. i currently own a Yamaha RBX170. i know nothing is it good/bad/shockingly bad whats everyone elses opinion just to get a general view.
     
  2. I'm not sure about the RBX170, but I have an RBX270 and I'm so glad I chose it as my first bass. Lovely sound, good playability and it looks pretty nice as well :D
    I've seen good reviews of the RBX series, they're quality basses :)

    I looked in the review section over on Harmony Central, but unfortunately there were only 2 reviews of the 170. Go here if you want to read them:

    Just remember, these are just user reviews, not professional opinions! Sounds like the 2 that did review it were pleased with it though.

    if you haven't tried out the 760.. try those.. well worth the $200-300 more than the 160.. or 170 whatever.. :)

  6. RBX270 is my first bass too! everyone says its a girl bass, but i dont care, its got an amazing sound, i've never played a RBX170, but from the RBX's i've played they're all horgeous sounding basses.
    shoonk
     
  7. Everyone says its a girls bass? I've never got that before, why do they say that :confused: Is it because of the colour? I got mine in a natural finish, which looks really nice IMO.
    They're great basses :D
