If you are a beginner and you are serious about learning to play, then you need a good quality, no-frills instrument. The Yamaha RBX-170 fits the bill perfectly. Even though this instument is cheap to buy, no comprimises have been made with the construction and finish of it (the Old Violin Sunburst finish is particularly attractive). When my instrument arrived, the action was quite high, but it is a very quick and simple job to lower it. I cannot put this bass down, it is just so playable! Overall a superb bass for the money.
