TRBX’s neck design combines a fast, ultra-comfortable profile with a 5-piece maple/mahogany laminated construction for outstanding stability and excellent tone.
TRBX uses a precision-fitted bolt-on neck joint for maximum adjustability and a clear, punchy tone. Developed through hundreds of hours of play-testing, the refined neck joint shape perfectly balances strength, vibration transfer and upper-fret access.
Straight string pull from nut to machine head eliminates lateral tension, providing superior tuning stability and reducing overtones.
38mm (4-string) or 43mm (5-string) nut widths give fast, comfortable playability for any style.
A high-mass die-cast bridge efficiently transfers string vibrations to the body for full, rich tone combined with excellent adjustability and road-tested durability. 18mm string spacing on the 5-string model offers outstanding playability for technical slap or finger styles.
Yamaha’s metal plate-mounted standard jack socket offers superior durability and easy maintenance.
