Acquired this 1999 Washburn Bantam RB2600 last night. First impression was how light it is. The neck is very thin, like an SR, and very manageable. I'm going to replace the strings with HiBeams today and give it a good setup but already I find it very resonant and dynamic. It sits well, minimal neck dive. The pickup is active and seems to have a good range. I'm getting a good dark growl from y practice amp. Haven't had the chance to give her a go rip. The controls are pretty simple, bass & treble. I'll look into mod later. Anyways if you get the chance to pick one up don't hesitate. Solid build, light weight, reasonable cost.
