The Yamaha RBX760A is an electric bass guitar with active pick ups. I'm not an owner of this bass, but I used to play in a band with someone who has it and we still hang out so every now and then and I get to mess around with it. I don't have too much information in terms of specs on this bass, but it wasn't made in the USA and has two pick ups to work with and a volume and tone knob for each.

UTILIZATION

The feel of the Yamaha RBX760A is the best part about it, as the action is extremely fast! I really like playing this bass as it's easy to navigate up and down the fretboard quickly and smoothly. It's definitely surprising to find in a bass like this, but the neck's action seems to be as quick as some basses double or triple it's price.

SOUNDS

The sound of the Yamaha RBX760A is pretty good, but it's not really anything to write home about. The sound of the active pick ups is definitely pretty hot and sensitive, but it's kind of cool for what it is - definitely a modern sound. It's got more of a heavy attack sort of sound than anything else. It's not my favorite sounding bass, but for the price it's very good. If you were to switch out the pick ups here you'd have yourself a great sounding instrument most likely.

OVERALL OPINION

The Yamaha RBX760A is actually a pretty awesome bass guitar for the price. It's definitely as good as some instruments that are more expensive, and if you change out the pick ups here you'd probably have yourself a very nice bass. The action is outstanding as it's super easy to play. I don't believe that they're making the RBX760A any more, but if you can find one used for not too much I'd say grab it up for a beginning or intermediate bass player as this is a great instrument for the money.
