The Resurrectionist - Episode 10 - Yamaha RBX170 Bass

Ahoy hoy! Today I get to talk about another bass - and indeed another Yamaha.

Yes, the Yamaha RBX170 - a beginners bass guitar.

Now - remember - entry level guitars are made - to a price, which means that they are not the best instruments in the world.

For guitars that seems to be less of an issue.

With bass guitars - the neck tends to bend more - as there is more stress on a longer piece of timber. The neck therefore isn't completely flat, but nearly. Hence a little buzzing still. I did, happily get to make a new back plate and output plate for it - so I got to use my workshop in anger.


Lots of fun, and now a splendid beginners bass guitar...
