Rapture, Yamaha
2 April 2014
  • Summary: I used my Rbx170 in every gigs, jamming and even recording. It delivered great sounds, it doesnt matter if the venue is huge, open or even small in a bars. It is very lightweight and has a small body even it has 24 frets. The looks match with my personality(being a small guy). Amazing bass that i ever play, my best friend next to my wife of course. by the way i named her "Marilyn" Yamaha RBX170 Rules!!!
  • Pros: Fun To Play, Good Feel, Good Pick Up, Good Tone, Solid Electronics

Amazing Bass

Wil, Yamaha
28 February 2014
  • Summary: I use my RBX170 to play at Weekend Services. I am simply amazed by this bass. It was recommended to me by the store staff as a good beginner bass. 5 years later and I am still playing on it. It has very good feel with great sound. I have no need to look further until it time for a 5 string, which will be a Yamaha.

Yamaha....amazing as usual

  • Summary: Yamaha makes high-quality instruments, no matter what the model number is. Don't judge the 170 on its amazing (maybe under-priced) price tag. This is a great bass for any player. For the more seasoned players you can spend some more money and upgrade the pickups and pots (DiMario, Seymour Duncan, etc.) and be even more in love with it and have a bass that would have cost you 2-3 times as much for a competitor's.
  • Pros: Excellent Craftsmanship, Fun To Play, Good Feel, Good Pick Up, Good Tone, Solid Electronics
  • Cons: None

Better than most at three times the cost

  • Summary: Great feel, smooth sound, solid construction and sharp finish (old violin), it gives much more expensive basses a run for the money! Perfect for starters and pros alike!

Awesome!!!

BigDaddy, Yamaha

  • Summary: I am a proffesional guitarist. I bought this bass for my 17 year d daughter. So she can jam with her brother and I. I played this model at 3 different stores. I compared it with every bass they had in the same price range. I was always happiest with the yamaha. It has the best tone, nice playable neck and a really cool look to it. My friend, a proffesional bass player, recommended GHS Boomers 45 - 90.

Great Bass for the Price

gtrpkr, Yamaha
6 April 2013
  • Summary: I was in the market for a reasonably priced bass to replace an old Fender Precision copy that I've had for over 20 years. I only play bass for recording in my home studio - I'm a guitar player. While at Guitar Center recently I noticed this Yamaha bass for a very low price, and it looked great in black. I picked it up and was surprised to find it had a nice neck which was very playable.

RBX170 Yamaha Bass

  • Summary: This is the second bass I have purchased and am very pleased. I bought the old violin sunburst and it is beautiful. The action is smooth and the tone is fantastic. I've talked with two other musicians since and they told me it was a great bass, especially for the money.
