2012$0.00goodJ. M. BargasSomeone was throwing it out, into a garbage bin. I took it home. Cleaned the fret board. Body was covered with chewing gum and other sticky stuff.. Made adjustments. Fingers glide across the fret board with the greatest of ease. Didn't realize Yamaha made such a great bass for beginners and advance players. I believe it's now worth 100.00 dollars and more! I'm excited!
2015$80wornkaren twhat year is was it made and how much is it worth
2016$50poorNeck was bowed and doesn't want to stay straight in standard tuning. Intonation is off. Bent tone knob, couple of major chips and scratches in finish. Plays okay otherwise.
2011$80goodSeanGood condition, new strings. Found it used at guitar center. It plays great!

2017$106.95goodjfh2112Missing the low E string, but neck was straight. A couple of dings in the body. Pickups are *super-hot*!

What planet is 100-200$ from? What does that even mean?? Were you attempting to sat $100-$200 range? In case you skipped the 4th grade. The dollar sign goes in in FRONT of the number.

Great bass for that price range from 100-200$. Only one change i was made on mine ,by replacing original pickups with SPB3 ,and the sound is more better from Squier p-basses.Easy weight ,slide neck...only problem is a look - not a iconic bass,like Fender design :) I recommending also for intermediate and pro players
