“Representing the top of the line in the TRBX family of basses, the TRBX600 series offers a combination of looks, ease of use and performance that is unmatched in this price range,” said Dennis Webster, product marketing manager, Yamaha Guitars.

Yamaha today showcased two additions to its popular TRBX series of electric basses. The TRBX604FM and TRBX605FM bring elegant appointments to a lineup known for performance and value.

Both the four-string TRBX604FM and five-string TRBX605FM boast intricately finished flame maple tops and matching headstock veneers to go along with the features that have established the TRBX series as an industry workhorse - comfort-contoured mahogany bodies, bolt-on five-piece maple/mahogany necks and premium electronics.

Like the popular TRBX500 models, both TRB600 basses are designed to deliver the right tone for every musical style. Custom Yamaha H series pickups use four Alnico V pole pieces per-string to offer a wide frequency response and noise-free operation. The flexible onboard electronics allow players to take full advantage of the pickups' range with an easy-to-use balance control and a three-band EQ that can go from active to passive operation with the flip of a switch.

"With their exotic wood tops and headstock appointments, the TRBX604FM and TRBX605FM harken back to the days of the acclaimed TRB Series, while also providing modern pickups, flexible tone controls and the active/passive switch that have made the TRBX500 basses so popular," said Dennis Webster, product marketing manager, Yamaha Guitars. "Representing the top of the line in the TRBX family of basses, the TRBX600 series offers a combination of looks, ease of use and performance that is unmatched in this price range."

The Yamaha TRBX604FM (MSRP: $970) and TRBX605FM (MSRP: $1,070)
basses are available now. Both models are available in gloss Translucent Black, gloss Dark Red Burst, matte Amber and Natural Satin.
