Yamaha's TRBX605FM 5-string electric bass is a sleek, performance-ready bass that provides a dynamic tonal range and comfortable feel for any musical genre. Featuring a flame maple top on an alder/maple body, as well as a five-piece maple and mahogany neck, the TRBX605FM resonates with a rich, full tone. Powered by two Yamaha custom ceramic pickups, this bass delivers a balanced response across the frequency range to cut through any mix. With its versatile sound and stylish looks, the TRBX605FM is the ideal choice for bass players wanting to explore new creative territory.

Flame Maple Top Provides Striking Looks and Enhanced Tone

The TRBX605FM's flame maple top not only gives this bass a stunning burst finish but also enhances resonance and harmonic richness. When paired with the mahogany body, the maple top produces a wide tonal range—from bright highs to deep lows.

Ergonomic Neck Profile Offers Playing Comfort

Featuring a five-piece maple and mahogany neck, the TRBX605FM provides stability and sustain. Its ergonomic neck shape and smooth satin finish allow for comfort and playability. The 24 medium frets give players more room to explore the upper register.

Yamaha Custom Pickups Provide Versatile Tone

Equipped with two Yamaha custom ceramic pickups, the TRBX605FM delivers a balanced tone for any musical style. The pickups feature Alnico V magnets and overwound coils to capture a clear high end, tight low end and punchy midrange. Blending the pickups opens up more tonal possibilities, from vintage thump to modern grind.

Premium Components and High-Quality Construction

From its die-cast tuners to its steel bridge, the TRBX605FM is built with premium components for lasting performance. Its durable construction includes a five-bolt mitered neck joint for rock-solid stability. Rubber mute pads behind the bridge prevent unwanted string noise, while the matching painted headstock provides an attractive finish.
