Yamaha John Patitucci Bass


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 Perloid Peg Heads
  • White perloid 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.
