  1. This bass is a black semi-hollow body set-neck instrument. It's a 34" scale neck with a thin, flat profile. The pickups are soapbars with a 3 way switch; 2 tones and 2 volumes. It's strung with flatwounds right now. The output jack is missing its washer, there's a nick by the tone pots, some rash on the headstock, a slight indentation in the purfling area on the lower bout (tried to show in pics, but doesn't really show up), slight oxidization of the hardware, and some buckle rash (which also doesn't show in the pics).

  4. My AB90i and AB95 are 34 inch scale. Measure from the nut to the 12th fret and multiply by 2 so the intonation adjustment doesn't confuse the measurement.

    Then again, maybe some were made 35 inch scale?

    The scale may matter to a potential buyer - I wouldn't have bought mine if they were a 35 inch scale.

    Great bass for the money.

    Good luck on the sale.

    I had both 4 and 5 string versions of this bass, it's definitely 34 inch scale.
     
  6. This bass is definitely 35". I've been through this before. Washburn made some 34 and some 35(I think later). If you search google you can find some reviews of the 35" (BGRMA?).
     
  7. So when I say definitely a 35" scale bass, I mean I'm definitely a moron. It's 34" scale. I couldn't believe my eyes when I checked again. I measured it a while ago but I must have been doing something wrong. Sorry for the confusion. I still believe they made some 35" scale at the end of their run, but maybe the people who wrote the things I read drank the idiot kool-aid too.
     
  8. PM's replied. Also I forgot to put the weight of the bass: I think it's about 10 lbs., but I need to double check that. Also, the bass is a very high output...it's freakin' loud. The pickups offer very different timbres. The neck pickup gives a very bass-y, Reggae/Dub-like tone. The bridge pickup is more mid-range and aggressive. Together, a very beefy in-between with the overall sound leaning slightly more to the neck pup's color. It sounds different from every other bass I own/owned.
     
  9. Passive bass, but output is as high as my 9 volt active basses.

    Also higher than my bass with an 18 volt Audere Classic preamp.

    Whoever buys the bass won't be disappointed.

    Good luck on the sale.
