Yamaha TRB 5 ii 5-String Bass Blue, 2000

The Yamaha TRB 5 ii is a very solid ‘monster’ bass, upgrading the previous TRB series to a long 35 inch scale length. The line has been built since 1989, and the ‘ii’ series until 2004. This example features a translucent blue finish and gold coloured hardware.

The TRB design uses the familiar, reliable bolt-on concept and was first offered as a six-string model. 5 and 4 string versions followed quickly. The comfort-contoured body is Ash, with deep cutaways offering full access to the 3-piece laminated Maple neck. The neck joint is serious, with six bolts.

Hardware is gold coloured if metal and black for the plastic covers and knobs. The active electronics are fairly straightforward, with a pair of humbucking pickups and a 9v powered EQ offering Master Volume, a Pan-pot, then Bass Mid and Treble controls.

Based on the Yamaha ‘E-7’ serial number system, this bass was built in Japan during August of 2000.   

This bass is in good condition and is very comfortable to play, despite the long scale. A Levy’s gig bag is included.
