I'm planning on buying a bass to hold myself over while I do a project bass (giving my PV to my girlfriend, which will leave me bassless... its her b-day gift, so yeah, good reason to give it to her.) that I'll be doing over a period of time as I have limited funds and a bi-weekly paycheck. I'm looking at ESP and Ibanez basses, mainly the B-254s ($454) and the BTB400s ($500). My local shop has a Washburn T24 hanging on their wall, and I've banged around on it a few times, and love it. the mahogany neck through feels so great, the tiny sculpted body is very comfortable, and it has a nice weight to it. My only gripe about the bass it the electronics, If I do attain the bass I'll be dropping in a Bart. 4.6a/p. I was also thinking some matching Bart. p'ups too. Have any of you any experience with this bass??? Please share any experience good or bad... plagued... ~Ryan.
