Each model features two Alnico hum-canceling pickups, made exclusively for the TRB in Yamaha's Japan factory. The pickups are mated to a proprietary active preamp that features a three-band EQ, master volume and blend controls.
TRB basses sport die-cast machines and solid brass bridges. Other appointments include oval Mother-of-Pearl position marker inlays on the fretted models, while the TRB1005F has a clean fingerboard design with Maple fret lines. Finishes include Translucent Dark Red, Translucent Black and Natural.
