Premium mahogany construction and an ultra-musical active/passive preamp design deliver the flexibility and sheer tonal quality you need to sculpt the perfect sound.
- Sculpted, Solid Mahogany Body
- 5-Piece Maple/Mahogany Neck
- 2 YGD-designed H5 Alnico Humbucking Pickups
- Active Electronics w/Passive Switchability
The TRBX500 series features controls for master volume, balance, 3-band EQ and an active/passive switch for maximum flexibility
YGD-designed H5 pickups are defined by a clean, open tone perfectly matched with the flexibility of the active/passive preamp design. Its quad-polepiece design and Alnico magnets give them the power to drive the active circuit, and the sensitivity and subtlety to capture every nuance in passive mode.
Electronics (Active/Passive Selector, Battery Alert)
Featuring an audiophile-grade active/passive circuit for fine tonal control and extreme flexibility, the advanced design offers a level-matched output whether in passive or active and tone-switching circuitry mode, which seamlessly moves from treble control to master passive tone. High-quality, gold-plated parts are used for key signal chain contacts, providing increased conductivity and reliability, and an LED installed on the back panel gives instant indication of a low battery to prevent sudden power loss during performances.
Sculpted, solid mahogany body with a mass-optimized 3D design for the optimum balance of tone and comfort coupled with perfect weight distribution
Combines a fast, ultra-comfortable profile with 5-piece maple/mahogany, laminated construction for outstanding stability and excellent tone.
Precision-fitted, bolt-on neck joint for maximum adjustability and clear, punchy tone. Developed through hundreds of hours of play-testing, the refined neck joint shape perfectly balances strength, vibration transfer and upper-fret access.
Straight string pull, from nut to machine head, eliminates lateral tension for superior tuning stability and reduced overtones.
Nut widths, 38 mm (4-string) or 43 mm (5-string), provide fast, comfortable playability fit for any style.
A high-mass, die-cast bridge efficiently transfers string vibrations to the body for full, rich tone combined with excellent adjustability and road-tested durability. The 18 mm string spacing on the 5-string model offers outstanding playability for technical slap or finger styles.
Yamaha metal, plate-mounted standard jack sockets offer superior durability and easy maintenance.

Here at Easy Music Center, we care for our instruments from the moment they arrive to when they ship to your door. All instruments are stored in a climate controlled environment and put through a 12 point inspection checklist before being shipped.
First, we check the finish of the instrument, carefully inspecting any blemishes on the surface. Next, we check the playability and setup by inspecting and adjusting the truss rod (if available), bridge, nut, and frets. If the instrument has electronics, we test all of the electronic components to make sure they are functioning properly.
After a thorough inspection, we then move on to maintenance. We start by lubricating any moving parts on the instrument, such as tuning machines. We then move on to cleaning and oiling the fretboard along with the frets.
Once maintenance is done, we stretch and tune the strings and play test the instrument. After this, we do a final inspection and clean/detail the instrument before packing it up for shipment.
We’re excited to be a part of your instrument buying experience.
