    These are super cool basses. This is the second one I have had, and they both have been beautiful.

    It is a 1982 Washburn Force 8 from the Matsumoku factory in Japan. The neck is to die for on this bass, it has amazing fret access due to the lack of a neck heel, and is super smooth and fast. The "bolt-on" portion of the neck is sunk into the body in order to eliminate the heel, which is really unique.

    Pickups are Dimarzio style common to this era and are bright and responsive. The flipped P style is a great choice and really helps to tighten up the D & G strings.

    The bass is in good condition with some minor dings around the edges and two small dings in the neck. It does look like someone used super glue to reset the string through ferrules on the back though, but it is purely cosmetic and could probably be washed off with some acetone. Everything is in perfect working order and there is little fret wear. The bass is in perfect functional condition!

    The original tweed Washburn hardshell case will be included, though it doesn't latch very tightly- still is awesome though.

    Any questions please shoot me a PM or relpy here!

    $350 Shipped in ConUS (Outside ConUS PM me) in OHSC

    Love my black on white 82. This is an excellent price for a truly fat-sounding rock and roll bass.
