8/31/2007 [Guitars & Basses]A.I.R. Technology Gives Bassists Super Sustain and Resonance
The RBX4 A2 four-string electric bass
"The A.I.R. construction method is ideal for bass players," said Armando Vega, product manager, Yamaha Guitars, Pro Audio & Combo Division. "Some of the musicians we've shown this to have been amazed by the sound of this bass. In addition, players love the streamlined, contemporary look."
The RBX4 A2 is also equipped with two Yamaha single coil pickups, which are sonically matched to the instrument's revolutionary body and designed by the Yamaha Guitar Custom Shop in Hollywood, California.
"Once again, Yamaha technology has shattered people's perception of how guitars are made," said Vega. "A.I.R. has proven that it is possible to build a great-sounding, highly resonant guitar without using heavy hardwoods."
Available in white/aircraft gray, as well as solid black, the RBX4 A2 features a bolt-on maple neck, 24-fret rosewood fingerboard and two single coil pickups sonically matched to the instrument's body. The LED-illuminated pickup indicator lights, which increase their brightness in conjunction with the volume, add a high-tech look.
