    Up for sale is my classic Washburn Force ABT B105 Chicago Series 5 string. I picked it up on a whim because it is similar to one of my first ever basses back in junior high. It has twin J pickups, active preamp, and very narrow string spacing. Overall it is in excellent condition given the age. It has a small crack around the input jack, but it is solid and does not move when you insert or remove the cable. Other than a few minor chips and nicks, it is super clean, with a brand new set of LaBella's. Includes what I would describe as a "unique" hard case.

    It is hard to value this thing based on the relative rarity of transactions for this old Washburn stuff. How about $399 shipped within the U.S. PRICE DROP TO $299 shipped. I always consider trade offers if you want to make one. Please PM me with any questions, and feel free to reminisce about how great the 80's were. Thanks!

    Totally cool bass. Why they put that writing on there I'll never know.

    I would consider pedal trades on this bass. Contact me if you are interested.
