I'm selling it. Just got it recently, but there are more pressing needs for my music trip, and really I find this just isn't quite it for me. I like it, it sounds GREAT, and it's a player. But I'm afraid it's probably more someone else's.
Looking for $300 + shipping, no case.
Non of the knobs work, but it plays when you plug in- through the amp. Weird, I know, but the 5-position pickup selector works, and my fav setting is dead-center. You control the volume with your amp, and it's at a pretty good volume setting where it is. Of course you're going to want to fix this, but I'm staying out of the gutty-works of this one.
It's an '85, made in the Kasuga factory in Japan, apparently the year after Matsumoku quit making Washburns.
A precious owner did some 'scrimshaw' on the back. Not horrible, but meh. Fine, sort of Celtic/tribal... and the guy's name, "Joe".
There are a few dings, a few strap-button holes in back, and paint cracking between the neck and fingerboard. But, the bass is in nice integral shape, and the front of the body and headstock are looking nice and presentable. The 'Rudy Sarzo' brand marker on the upper horn is in fine shape, all the choice features of the bass are in good order.
I've played a couple gigs with it, and it's a pretty killer bass. It's particularly impressive tuned B-E-A-D...
Just needs that wiring addressed. Goes on Ebay pretty soon...
Thanks for looking in.
Here's a little Photobucket slideshow of the bass: http://s27.photobucket.com/user/Sloo...shburn%20Sarzo
