Help me ID this (late 80s?) Washburn bass.

Force 40 or SB40

Early Washburns are really nice!

Here is mine. It's also a 1981 B40. I am the original owner.

Thanks, guys! That was quick. I really appreciate it. One of the tuning pegs is on its last legs, but beyond that and a few minor dings it still seems to be in pretty good shape.
Any leads on replacement tuning pegs? I did some quick googling and got some (to me) pretty expensive quotes for replacements.

I can't help there unfortunately. The only thing I ever had to do was replace a ferrule and then I had a minor problem because they are a non-standard size.
The B40's are frustrating because they don't have any identification on them. I couldn't remember what model mine was even though I bought it new over 30 years ago.

No worries and thanks again, msact. Your cream b40 looks great. I'm hoping mine doesn't have any fret buzz etc. but I'm going to restring it and see (hear?). Cheers.

Good luck. If there is any fret buzz, it might just need the truss rod to be tweaked a bit. It looks to be in good shape. I have three Washburns from the late 70's/early 80's. They made very nice basses back in that era.
