Yamaha’s RBX170 represents a price breakthrough for the RBX range, yet the quality is everything you’d expect from a Yamaha bass. The solid agathis body shares the range’s sleek, wide-cutaway contours, allowing the player easy access right to the top of the 24-fret, full-scale neck which carries a genuine rosewood fingerboard.
Powering is by two punchy, clear-voiced single-coil pickups, with the volume and tone controls augmented by a pickup balance control for added sonic versatility and expression.
