    It's a great bass. The Bartolini's sound AWESOME, the neck feels great, it comes w/alot of different tops. It's a very nice high end bass.

    BUT Washburn dosen't do to much advertising. These basses list for over $1600 & I've seen alot of stores w/them (including where I work) & no customers give it any mind. These basses usually sell for around $1150 new. I've seen stores sell them on eBay "new old stock" for about $300-500. You could definitly get a GREAT DEAL on one on eBay or used.

    Terrific bass with a great, smooth R&B tone, but it's a white elephant on the resale market. Its street price is rock-bottom low because, as Nino says, they don't advertise at all. My advice: buy and hold.

    good news, i have a friend who just picked one up on eBay for around 500ish, so i just wanted to be sure he got a good deal.

    i hear the sustain on these are for ever, and it only needs tuning like once in a lifetime. which sounds great to me.

    i can't wait to get over to his place and give her a spin.

    thanks again.
