Available on Reverb– https://reverb.com/item/73030542-yamaha-trb-5p-5-string-bass-guitar-piezo-mij-ca-1995

Condition– solid good condition, but not cosmetically perfect. Shows some dings on the headstock (see photos), a ding on the neck (see photo) and lots of light scratches and swirls from use on the top. The back of the neck is pretty clean, no ring rash or the like. The fingerboard is pretty clean, the frets are in 90% very good condition. The gold hardware shows some wear from use and age. All electronics are stock and work as they should. The Yamaha branded hard shell case is in good condition, owners manual included. This is a happy, healthy bass.
