Yamaha TRB JP1 is John Patitucci signature bass made to John's specs with the original 34" scale, a 6-string maple neck with ebony fingerboard, a solid brass bridge, and a sandwiched body that seasons the punch of alder with a mellowing layer of ash and a top of bright-sounding maple. There's a lower-bout "slap cut" for the leverage John likes, a sophisticated wiring scheme that lets you cut or boost highs, lows, and a user-definable mid frequency-that can coax astonishing tones from the J-pickupsThe Yamaha John Patitucci Signature Bass is the result of the inspired relationship between John and Yamaha; it features: a custom sculptured body of highly figured maple, ash and alder, a six string bolt-on neck with 24 frets, active electronics, custom inlay and gold hardware.The John Patitucci models all feature the Yamaha all-access bolt-on neck joint.

This is a used bass. It is in really good condition. Plays and sounds just great.The only issues are a crack in the case and some glue at the top around the mid pot (this can probably be removed easily). In any case, everything works just as it should.
