    It's a Yamaha RBX375 in silver. I played it for about an hour just now, and it's very comfortable and sounds amazing, especially considering the price. The finish is very good overall, and, with the exception of some rough spots in the pickup routes, is flawless. The silver finish looks very nice, I'm glad I went with it instead of red.

    Setup is good out of the box, action is pretty low with hardly any buzzing. Came with a manual, a battery, some allen wrenches and a very cheap looking cable.

    That's the only pic I have of the bass, so here's my cat in my Ibanez case:

    Nice bass, just got an RBX myself but I've not got round to taking pictures. They're great basses.

    What is it about cats and guitar cases? Mine are always trying to get into mine (sorry off topic).

    Nice bass.

    Very nice looking bass. I should get myself a five-string bass sometime this year. I'm aiming for mainly just: 5-strings and active pickups (maybe EMGs). I've played some Yamaha basses before (not any 5-strings, though) and they're pretty cool. :yesway:

    I can see the pics just fine as well.

    yeah the pic is working now...weird, sounds good though, I've played several black ones and they're sick, the neck feels awesome.
