    Well as much as I hate to sell this beautiful bass, I need the money more than I need the bass.

    This bass has a mahogany body, neck through with what looks like a 5 piece, and Grover tuners. It's about a year old and I bought it when the price was still over $400 (and IMHO construction on this line was better than it is now with the cheaper price). Bass is in over all 9/10 condition and has no major (and really not even any visible) flaws besides maybe a pinhead sized scrape in the finish on the back, that I had to look for several times before I actually found it. And also it has one spot on the lower cutaway on the bottom of the neck that looks like the stain missed it. I hadn't even noticed it in a year until I just looked it over to make sure I can represent it as truthfully as possible. The bass hasn't been played much lately and has just been sitting at my dad's house for the last 6 months.

    It's been a great bass for me but it's time to find it a new home. It gives you a sweet boutique look with a great price and solid construction in Vietnam that Washburn has won awards for with this bass a year or two ago.

    PM me with any questions/requests for additional pictures. I'm looking to get maybe $225 out of this bass. They go for over $300 in stores new, I have yet to see a new one that looks better than mine, maybe since mine was made before they dropped the price on them.

    I am looking forward to getting my t24 next week. Can you give me a little feedback on it ? It's pros and cons....what you liked most about it, least about it....what type strings sounded best on it...how is it for funk poping slaping...sustain, action etc etc.....I will be playing thru a crate bx-80 and have a set of Rotosound swing bass 66 roundwound I am throwing on it when I get it. I too heard about the good reviews...but after reading your first post I hope the craftsmanship on it has not gone downhill after reading your first post. :rollno:

    Is this still availalable, and if so does it come with a case?
