Excellent beginner's bass
Sounds like a bass twice the price
Lightweight, yet hardy
Tone slightly on the "twangy" side
Gloss finish easily gets dirty
The Yamaha RBX-170 gives absolute perfection for a beginner's bass, and even for the intermediate. It sounds like it could cost heaps more, and is nice to play and pleasing to the ear.
Real rosewood fretboard
Wide tonal range, with a P and J pickup.
If you are looking for a great value yet smooth sounding bass then look no further!
