    ^ Those are pretty solid basses. I'd see if you could find a TRB1005 maybe, the pickups sound significantly better, IMO. Used they're around the same price as the TRBX505 is new.

    Those are nice basses. They sound more like MM basses than J basses, but downthe road you can change the pickup to EMG 40J's or something.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but they don't seem to come in white tho. And pickups can be swapped out by myself, for example to the pickups suggested my Jazzhands below

    Yeah, I was thinking something like that

    Do they fit? I thought the TRBX305 pickups looked a bit weird but I'm not a bass expert, I think their pickup variety is a real jungle

    It's not white

    Guys, even PEARL WHITE IS WRONG. I only like pure white gloss guitars, especially if they have black hardware.

    I'm stubborn as a retard on this, sorry for that, but it has to match all my other guitars (they are all white with black hardware, except one being purple with gold hardware for some LGBT diversity )

    Are you sure the EMG fits, Jazzhands?

    I can't see the exact dimensions, but I can see they dont have the same mounting holes.

    Yamaha's pickups except for the P/J basses they make are all proprietary

    That said, if it's gotta be white:

    Sorry, I'm not 100% with what propritary means... Does that mean I can, or cannot, change the pickups to the EMGs?

    I dont like vintage white either, it's too yellow
    It's gotta white gloss. I'm totally gay with this requirement.
    And liked the TRBX design in general, but not the BB425x.

    It means they're specific to Yamaha. They always make their stuff SLIGHTLY different in size.
