Go to a shop and play it. Only you will know if it´s good for you. Usually Yamaha offers decent quality for the price asked. I played one a while ago and liked it. Here´s what the company says about the RBX775:

I have an RBX765A. It's the previous version of the 775. I absolutely love it!

The 775 looks like they've taken the 765 and tweaked it. I'd love to get my hands on one...

Only once it's in your hands will you know if it's the right bass for you. (tone is subjective; also things like neck shape/size, 'feel' vary from person-to-person).


That being said, Yamaha is a quality company. You can be confident that you are buying from a manufacturer that has a solid reputation.


Let us know how it turns out!

I also have a Yamaha RBX 5 string and I would not be without it.


The extra width of the fretboard, going from 4 to 5 was an initial prob, but this isn't exclusive to Yamaha.


Otherwise I've found it easy to set up, restring and play. The Pre-amp gives plenty of variation and the pups are quiet.


Generally I've found it Good Enough. The only issue I'd mention is, I've found the paint finish a little soft & easy to chip.
