    Do you know how many days it takes them to send it????
    He will be staying there for only 2 days...
    Is there any possibility for my uncle to make the transaction in one single payment in cash, when he receives the bass?
     
  4. yamaha NT? now i never seen that before.

    about the shipping, why don't u call them and see if they can ship it in 24h...i guess fedEx have that, or UPS right¿?or maybe call someone over there, order the bass and when he goes, he only picks it.or stay more days :D:D

    That is called a C.O.D. (Cash on Delivery), call Musician's Friend and ask them if they do that and make the arrangements for shipping. Or they can take your credit card over the phone and ship the bass to where you Uncle will be.

    Good luck Bro! That bass is gonna be awesome!

    I have a fair number of high-end basses, and none of them are better than the TRB5P-II in any way ... fit, finish, playability and tone. The Yamaha is a little heavier than most, but the sound is superb. You can't go wrong with your choice on this one.

    Langueta, I don't know if this helps, but this just appeared on BassGear.com:

    FS: Early 90's Yamaha TRB-5P Bass Neck Thru $850

    I have no affiliation with the seller.

    The TRB5P-II compares to ... jeez, I don't know what. It has sustain for a year, and the piezo pickups can add some bite to the tone. The tone overall is very clean and modern. The high-end Yamahas have what I consider to be a readily-identifiable sound. Listen to something that Nathan East plays on. Tone-wise, I'd say it's closest to my F Bass BN5.
