    I did a search, but the info is limited. Anyone know some specs on the Washburn AB90?
    nut width? weight? thick or thin neck? thick or thin body? etc...

    I just happened to play one the other day. I can't give you specific nut width, but it was similar to a P-bass. The neck depth is relatively shallow. It has Grover tuners and very nice body binding. The body is thin. This is a big bass though! The body is very wide, probably 17" as its widest and it is a 34" scale so there is a long reach to the first position. I'm a big guy (6'4") so it wasn't too bad, but I did notice it. The bass played extremely well, the passive pickups are very powerful. I got a very low-mid heavy sound out of it. I was playing through a Fender Bassman 1200 and Bassman 410 angled cab. This bass is on my GAS list!
