  3. In the nearly 20 years since John Patitucci first gained recognition as a member of Chick Corea's legendary Electric Band, he has established himself as one of the best jazz bassists of his time. Shifting seamlessly from a bandleader to respected sideman, John relies on his TRB JP2 signature 6-string bass to fit any role.

Multiple layers of alder, ash and figured maple are used on the TRB JP2 to create a sonic combination perfectly suited for solid, low-end comping and clear, concise solos. The body's sculpted cutaways hug the 26-fret neck and allow easy access to its upper reaches. Mother-of-pearl and abalone inlays adorn the ebony fingerboard, and the custom designed pearl and gold tuners offer precise tuning and visual elegance. Electronics include a pair of Alnico V humbuckers and an active 3-band EQ tuned to John's specs.

Versatile enough for any call, the TRB JP2 delivers the tone, power, and presence you expect from John Patitucci and Yamaha

White Pearloid Peg Heads

White pearloid peg heads aid in balancing the super long scale neck while adding great looks.

TRBJPII Custom Pickups

Pickups are a custom Alnico V design. The low-noise double-coil pickups deliver clear tonal image even when playing chords.

Solid Brass Bridge

A massive solid brass bridge delivers a clear and rich sound.

4-Ply Laminated Body

The 4-ply laminated body is crafted from plies of figured maple, ash, alder, and maple. This design produces tight and rich resonation over the instrument's entire range. A slap cut on the body offers greater string access.

26-Fret Neck

The 35-inch (889mm) super long scale neck has 26 frets. The maple neck is fitted with double truss rods to sufficiently counter tension produced by the instrument's six strings.
