Yamaha TRB lesson - bolt-on?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by jimfriar, Oct 15, 2006.

  1. I was always under the assumption that the TRB series from Yamaha were neck thru - all that I had seen were. Then I saw a used TRB 5 string fretless at a store, that was a bolt on. Are they also well regarded basses ? It played nice and looked very good - for $600.

    The TRB5PII, TRB6PII are through-necks. The TRBJP2, TRB1004, 1005 & 1006 are bolt-ons.

    Don't let neck thru vs. bolt-on tell you whether or not something is a good bass. Each have their pros and cons. I prefer a bolt-on bass myself.
