Yamaha TRB 5 II

I have an clean, low-end machine here. 

Made in Japan Yamaha TRB 5 II 35" 5 string, two octave neck bass with two active single coil pickups, 3-band EQ, volume and fader knobs. It plays in-tune all over the neck, and stays in-tune. The low-B is clear, and the bass has a great Yamaha active sound, (hi-fi, clear, and rumbly). I particularly like the P-type sound that I can get from it, but also like the balance of the slap sound with some of the mids cut. It has 18.5mm string spacing at the bridge, which is close enough to a Jazz bass spacing to be comfortable for slapping. 

original hardshell case included.

Issues:
1. The bass EQ knob has been replaced with a non-standard knob, but is fully-functional and solid
2. There is a nick on the body, (see pictures).
3. There is a nick on the headstock, (see pictures).
4. There are some lines in the paint on the back by the neck screws, (see pictures).

All of these are cosmetic and do not interfere with playability, sound, or functionality.
