Yes, after playing them in the store I orered them both (and an Ibanez SR505) to check them out at home, too. Sent the TRBX and Ibanez back, because they sounded kind of weak compared to the BB. Apart from that the TRBX had some very serious fret buzz that I could not get rid of no matter how I tweaked string height and neck relief.

I kept the BB and am very happy with it. The only problem I had so far are two defective tuning machines that are rattling while playing. The store where I bought the bass already ordered two new tuning machines from yamaha for me.

Great. A long thread that actually resolved! Congrats on finding your bass.

I still don't think they offer any kind of competition to a Lakland Skyline, but everyone's milage varies.

Thanks, I was wondering how a head-to-head comparison of those would turn out. Just buying them both and returning one is a great idea that hadn't occurred to me.
