So I come back from a hard day at University. It was tough. So hard to stay awake during those lectures. And I find this outside my room.



Woah. Big box. So I opens it.



Box in another box! This better be no Russian Doll style bollocks!



Peavey box! I don't quite recollect ordering a Peavey bass.

Or did I!?



Oh yeah, I ordered that Peavey Milestone 4 stringer. Was it really worth a NBD?

...

WTF IS THIS?!

#3
Oh yeah. It's that Yamaha RBXJM2 I won on eBay 2 weeks ago for £280.









Despite the missing battery cover on the back, it's looking fine.

I think it will fit with my other bass.



EDIT: ^Damnit, you're not meant to post inbetween!

EDITx2: Okay, I lied, I never did order a Peavey bass whatsoever. It just came in a Peavey box!

You'll find dual truss rods in a number of basses and guitars. Not all, but a few. It basically increases stability of the neck, especially in areas subject to larger climate fluctuations. They do require a bit more work to set up properly though, for obvious reasons. I personally prefer the use of stiffening bars, keeping stability but making truss rod adjustments simpler.

It's a Carvin XB76. I also got this second hand and it was my first 'proper' bass. I moved from a millionth hand P bass copy that had ridiculous neck bow problems to that; needless to say I love it and I love 6 string basses!

I believe it's an active preamp with a 9V battery, I'm not 100% sure. As for the Carvin, I think that is also an activ preamp with 2 9V batteries through it.

As for the truss rods, I'm not sure if the Yamaha as dual trussrods, but I suspect it does since most 6 string basses come with dual trussrods. Correct me if I'm wrong though!

It's one dirty bass, the strings are ridiculously greasy and there's dust all over it. Time for some new strings and a wipe down it looks like!

Looks gorgeous! Way to get everyone with that box thing

Do you slap at all? Those things look like.... well, they look like great slap basses. I like Yams, they're dependable and don't sound too bad at all (:

Grats!
#15
I don't slap much, and when I do, I suck. But the neck is rather slim and it feels nice enough to be a slapping bass.

#16
I came. Thats a nice axe mang.

Ricky basses have double truss rods as well....
Its pretty much a standard for sixers, the neck are so wide.
