Styled in a translucent black finish, the Yamaha 500-Series TRBX505 is a five-string electric bass with a solid mahogany body and a bolt-on mahogany/maple neck. This neck, measuring 34" in scale, offers a rosewood fingerboard with 24 frets. The fixed die-cast bridge bolsters sustain and tuning stability.

For electronics, you'll find dual alnico pickups and a preamp system that allows you to select between active or passive circuitry for a wide variety of tones, all thanks to a two-way switch. The pickups have been specifically tuned to match this selectable circuitry. A master tone knob and volume knob are provided, as are bass, midrange, treble knobs.

Body

The TRBX505 features a sculpted solid mahogany body, with a mass-optimized 3D design for a balance between tone and comfort coupled with even weight distribution

Neck

The neck design combines a fast, comfortable profile with 5-piece maple/mahogany-laminated construction for stability and improved tone

Pickups

YGD-designed H5 pickups are defined by a clean, open tone that's matched with the flexibility of the active/passive preamp design. Their quad-polepiece design and alnico magnets give them the power to drive the active circuit, and the sensitivity and subtlety to capture nuance in passive mode

Electronics

The TRBX505 features an audiophile-grade active/passive circuit for fine tonal control and flexibility. The design offers a level-matched output whether in passive or active mode and tone-switching circuitry that seamlessly moves from treble control to master passive tone. Gold-plated parts are used for key signal chain contacts, providing increased conductivity and reliability, and a battery alert LED installed on the back panel gives instant indication of low power to help eliminate sudden power loss during performance

Neck Joint

TRBX505 uses a precision-fitted bolt-on neck joint for adjustability and clear, punchy tone. Developed through hundreds of hours of play-testing, the refined neck-joint shape balances strength, vibration transfer, and upper-fret access

Bridge

A high-mass die-cast bridge efficiently transfers string vibrations to the body for full, rich tone combined with adjustability and road-tested durability. The 19mm string spacing on the 4-string model offers improved playability for technical slap or finger styles

Headstock

Straight-string pull from nut to machine head eliminates lateral tension, providing improved tuning stability and reducing overtones

Nut

The 43mm nut width provides fast, comfortable playability for any style

Output Jack

Yamaha's metal plate-mounted standard jack socket offers durability and easy maintenance
