Yamaha RBX170EW Translucent Black

4-String Electric Bass w/ Exotic Wood Top

Product Code: 68945

Authorized Yamaha Dealer
We're sorry, this product is no longer available.

The Yamaha RBX170EW Bass Guitar in Translucent Black comes ready for action straight out of the box!

The body is built using Agathis, a wood which shares similar properties to more expensive Mahogany and offers a dense tonal quality. The top piece is crafted using Exotic Mango which gives the bass its distinctive look.

The 34" scale-length neck is built from solid Maple adding to the guitar's resilience and resonance. The fingerboard is made from durable Rosewood, which can take any beating thrown at it. The Rosewood fingerboard houses 24 highly-playable frets.

The heart and soul of the Yamaha RBX170EW comes from the combination of split-coil pickups in the neck position and a single-coil in the bridge position. The simplicity of this setup should not be underestimated however, as there is a Front Volume Control, a Rear Volume Control and a Master Tone control, giving you a great deal of options when it comes to finding the sound you want.

The vintage-style bridge securely fixes the strings to the guitar so you can be assured that no matter how hard you play, it will keep you firmly in place. Covered tuners provide you with ready access to change your setup to your desired tuning and you can rest assured that you will comfortably be kept locked in whilst you rock out.
