    Milo,

    I believe no-one will be able to tell you which one is "best" if you don't specify what you're after.

    Cheers,
    JL

    TRB1006=Best value, 3 Band Active EQ of the 6II for hundreds less
    TRB6PII=Best bass Yamaha makes, my dream bass. Unbelievable sound
    JM=not bad, just the RBX style isn't my fav

    I was out in Vancouver last week and tried out a TRB1006. I did not know that Yamaha were making a cheaper TRB until I saw this one. I have been GASsing for TRB6IIP before I went nuts with other GAS items. (Fender MArcus Miller V for sale ;) )

    It sounded great. The store seemed to have paid attention to making sure it was set up well. The action was super low. Better than my Sadowsky (I'll have to work on that). Strings were kind of floppy though compared to what I am used to so maybe that made it feel better under the left hand than it really is. Not sure what strings it comes with. The bass sounded good but I would probably spend more and get the TRB6IIP. I certainly like a high C string. First time I played a 6 string. Not that hard to get used to. I also tried the 5 string version of the TRB1006. It was disspointing in that there was not a really warm mwah to it. My 20 year old FrakenFenderKramer 4 string sounds better than the fretless 5iver.

    Don't confuse the TRB6II with the TRB6PII - they're two completely different animals!

    You could look around for the older TRB-6P. They go for a bit cheaper than the new "upgraded" ones (due to being second hand and about 12 years old), and they pack some serious booty.

    I have a fretless BB5000 that I bought in 1994 and I am always looking for its song lost siblings. The bass is amazing. Neck through, a fingerboard like glass, sweet electronics, and the most amazing bridge I've ever seen on a bass, even compared to my Fodera. My workhorse for years.

    I'm jonesing to try the TRB 1006. Yamaha's el cheapos are usually pretty impressive.
