    Nice fretless acoustic includes Labella tapes and hard case. A previous owner sanded the saddle too far, and the G didn't hit it, so I made a replacement saddle from maple. The original and a Tusq blank are included. This has gobs of sustain, and a rich throaty tone. There are some scratches on the lower bout, where your arm goes. The finish has some cracks that don't show up in the picture; they are in line with the wood grain, but appear to be in the finish only. I've seen the same sort of thing in other acoustic basses.
    PayPal is good for me. IMG_20140207_203708143.jpg IMG_20140207_203608518.jpg IMG_20140207_203642173.jpg

    It uses a piezo-electric pickup under the bridge saddle. IMG_20140424_185241630.jpg IMG_20140424_185351227.jpg
    As you can see here, it also has a D.I. out; a very nice feature for recording!

    Most of the Washburn guitars I've played left a lot to be desired, but their acoustic basses are warm, articulate, and easy to play. Highly recommended if you don't want to break the bank. You'd have to move a few hundred higher into the Breedlove price range to find a better acoustic. Free bump.
