Comments about Yamaha RBX170Y 4-String Electric Bass Guitar:

It will buzz when you aren't in tune, or you are to off the fret all guitars do this, but this one will be more common to pick up on that buzz. Also this is better for those kids in jazz band like in middle or high school. Because it is a very nice bass to pick up.

Comments about Yamaha RBX170Y 4-String Electric Bass Guitar:

I bought this guitar as a gift for my wife. When I gave it to her she started playing it right away. Then she noticed defects around one of the knobs that was cracking the finish. It was a big let down. We tried to get ahold of Guitar Center customer service but all their lines were down and their chat was turned off. We ended up emailing them but we still haven't heard anything back from them. The bass guitar itself was also not in playing condition. It hummed and buzzed a lot.
