The other night I dreamed about refinishing my samurai bass in glittery-ass metallic green. And with an angled Model J pickup in the neck like on the old ones, no bridge pickup.
It's been sitting in pieces for a while now...hmm.

In the process of trying to haggle down the price of an SG500B, light a candle for me folks.

Thank you! It's actually not that pretty atm, I bought one with kind of a beat up body so I could have some fun and mess it up more, BUT BETTER. I'll probably post a few photos of what I end up doing with it. :thumb:

Great instruments but for me the issue is most often the way to narrow necks.

My beginner instrument was also a Yamaha, an RBX170 bass in electric sparkle blue because I was 10 and super cool (a dork).

I initially wanted to keep it but I sold it because really it was uncomfortable for me to play... so I really didn’t play it though I spent 4-5 years learning with only this one.

My first bass was a Yamaha RBX260 in metallic blue burst that had a neck thicker than a Warwick, horrible intonation, and sounded like shit. I thought dropping EMG PJs in would make it a badass metal bass (I was 12 or 13, I think) and then I dropped it for a black Ibanez SR885 (I thought I was a badass metalhead when I was in high school).

Now I really miss having older TRBs and the TRBX line has piqued my interest. Although I'm also looking at used TRB1005s and 80s BB basses.

Much love for Yamaha from this guy. Picked up this bastard a while ago and find myself not being able to put him down. He's an '81 SHB400.

The pickups are pretty hot and tend to be a bit on the muddy side, but the coils are nice and chimey when split. I really want to pick up the sister model to this (SSC500) for the Strat stuff.

Just found out Yamaha SA500's have a chunky neck and now I'm looking into one as maybe a replacement for my Ibanez AS73.
