An affordable bass featuring a powerful pickup configuration. The TRBX204 has the versatility and looks to fit whatever your style and stage. This great value bass guitar features popular split-p and j-style single-coil pickups delivering a thick, punchy low-end with a focus on the midrange.

The Yamaha TRBX204 utilises the classic split-p and j-style single-coil pickup configuration, producing a thick, midrange focused tone. The pickup configuration is also highly versatile, with the combination of both pickups allowing you to blend between the two to create the sound you desire. The single-coil pickup at the bridge adds attack and clarity to your tone whereas the neck pickup focuses on the midrange and low end, delivering a thick yet punchy bass response.
As well as its powerful pickup combination, the TRBX204 also features a range of controls for affecting the tone and volume. The controls include Master Volume, Pickup Balancer, Bass and Treble. The Pickup Balancer control allows you pick between the two pickups, allowing you to find that perfect tone. Dial the knob toward the neck pickup for a more thick and warm tone, or toward the bridge pickup for a more defined tone; you can also blend between the two to find the best tone for you. The bass and the treble knobs provide extra control over the tone, allowing you to dial in the amount of low or high-end you want, essentially acting as a 2-band EQ.
With its premium-quality components and range of customisable parameters, the TRBX204 is affordable yet doesn’t compromise on quality. This 4-string offers a range of handy components from its popular P and J style pickups, 4-control circuit, Basswood body with Rosewood fretboard, all in a stunning finish.
Apart from making a big difference to how the guitar looks, different types of wood can feel and sound quite different when you're playing on them, and their differing feels can subtly affect the way you play.
Rosewood: Soft-feeling and warm-sounding, rosewood fretboards are popular for good reason.
Maple: Offering a brighter tone with more high end, Maple fretboards also wear over time which can be attractive if you want your axe to look lived-in.
Ebony: similar to maple in tone and sturdier than rosewood, ebony fretboards offer a darker-looking neck with a brighter tone.
Despite what nationalists might tell you, there's not really any simple answer. Even though many companies design their guitars in the USA or Europe, the vast majority of instruments are actually manufactured in China, Mexico, Indonesia, Japan and Korea. There aren't any 'rules' as to what country makes good or bad guitars, but rather which brands have tighter quality control.
Surprisingly, it does. Wood type is not the only thing that affects the tone. The shape of the guitar can also influence the sound. As some shapes require the use of more wood than others, it can definitely give the tone a different texture. Some shapes will also work better if you are performing seated as opposed to standing. You also can't discount the importance of having the right "look" if that is what you are going for.
There are 3 main bridge types that you regularly find on electric guitars, Fixed or Hardtail, Tremolo, and then Floyd Rose. Fixed or Hardtail bridges have great tuning stability and are easily retuned or drop tuned without affecting the remaining strings. The main negative for this type of bridge is that you don't have the flexibility to change the pitch of a chord easily as you do with a Tremolo. For most guitarists this is not much of a problem and this tends to be the preferred bridge type. Tremolo bridges are usually set up as "floating" which means that if you push or pull on the tremolo bar you are able to change the pitch of the note or chord that you are playing. This type of bridge requires regular checking of tuning as the strings can get out of tune much easier on this bridge type. The Floyd Rose is the best known by the guitar shredding community. With this bridge you can dive bomb and lift squealing harmonics to the heavens by pushing or pulling on the tremolo bar. This bridge usually stays in tune very well no matter how dramatically you use it because there is a locking nut installed to help keep the guitar in tune. The difficulty comes when needing to change strings quickly or needing to change or drop tune. It all comes down to personal taste.
