Does anybody here have a Washburn XB-800, XS-8, MB-8, or Washburn/Status headless?

    Wondered how you liked any of these, and how the construction, playability and sound are.

    The Washburn status is a well built easy playing. Very comfortable and easy top play with a nice tight sound. I bought mine when I went through a Mark King phase. And while the bass sounds good for that it is versatile enough to play other style. It is one of the fe headless basses I could play.

    I have a transparent red one, It's a fantastic slap pop bass, great for funk or funk rock/metal. It's worth more than they go for. come to think of it I may just put mine up for sale! Any whooser they really are a diamond in the rough. They are tough as nails, light comfortable, and full of tone. I have heard some people say the jury is out on the finger style on these, but personally I think they are great.
