    Comments about Yamaha TRBX174 Electric Bass Guitar:

    I have played guitar for years and previously owned a bass (Ibanez Road Star) but didn't put much time into it. I am loving bass today. I purchased this and have been playing it ever since. There is some slight fret buzz but I think upgrading the strings could eliminate some of it.

      Comments about Yamaha TRBX174 Electric Bass Guitar:

      I picked one of these up for my 10 year old son who had taken an interested in learning to play bass guitar. I took him to Guitar Center and let him try out many different bass styles and scales. After about an hour or so he decided on this bass guitar. He has been playing it daily for a little over a month without any issues. I did have change the strings on it about 3 weeks after purchase. The out of the box setup was great. Intonation was spot on and action was reasonably low. Electronics have worked fine. There is some hum that can be annoying. I highly recommend this bass. It is a great value.

      Comments about Yamaha TRBX174 Electric Bass Guitar:

      I bought this bass as a beater bass. A practice bass that I could pick up and throw around at home and not worry about dinging it up. Well.... it has exceeded my expectations! I've been using it on outdoor duo and trio gigs and it sounds great! Lots of useful tones, and I don't have to worry if it's a little damp or humid. We tune down a half a step and it handles that really well. We play on a small stage so the fact that it's light, compact and comfortable makes it ideal for this application. Great practice bass too!

      Comments about Yamaha TRBX174 Electric Bass Guitar:

      After building myself an in home studio, I quickly realized the only thing i was missing was a bass. Swung over to a local store (sorry MF, i was in a rush!) and checked out their large selection. Being that i'm a drummer, I was looking for apparent quality as I didn't much know the specifics or traits that i should be mindful of. The price tag, finish, weight and balance of this thing caught my eye. I toyed around with it for a moment and purchased it about 15 minutes later. I would be lying if i said this was the most played piece in my studio - BUT whenever i do pick it up i am always impressed. Plugging it directly in to a preamp and hitting record with this thing is a dream. You can go from a very washy sound to some solid attack with the knobs. Contrary to one of the previous comments, it does have a volume knob. As i have developed my skills in the studio and on a guitar/bass I have never felt beyond or limited by this guitar. Exceptional piece, I can say with confidence that if bass was my main instrument, i would love to have this guitar as a backup. But for someone like me?.....perfect.

          I was was to be in China for a few months and wanted a practice bass . ( where I purchased mine) The price was good for Yamaha reputation. When I began working with it I was pleasently surprised how smooth and with very fine tones. My intentions were to leave it in China for my next returns. But I like it so much I will take it back to the U.S.A. Just overall comfortable bass.

          Comments about Yamaha TRBX174 Electric Bass Guitar:

          I needed a cheap, beater bass for home practice. I originally planned on purchasing a similarly priced Ibanez, but when I saw this on the rack at the store, I knew I was gonna get this instead. Lightweight and comfortable. Smooth, fast neck. Easy to get around on. Comfortable standing or sitting. Sounds great. Great tones. Superior electronics for the price. And a good-looking bass! My only issues are that it really needs a good set up. The intonation is off up the neck. Also, the cheesy plastic knobs stand out in a bad way. Overall, a really great bass for the price.
