Washburn Opinions?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by rydin4lifebass, Sep 28, 2009.

  1. I have an option to buy a used 2003 Washburn XB-102Q 4 string. I just started playing bass about 3 months ago with a silvertone revolver bass and package amp. I bought a nice hartke am because the one included in the package sucked. Would this be a nice addition and something else to play on/play with as far as string changes, set up, etc without messing on my main one. I basically wnat a second one to practice setting up and changing tunings on, etc. I can get it for $100 with a hardshell case...good deal or should I make a different offer?

    Won't get much love here, but a washburn is a step up for the money you stated. Is active, which is nice. However, there a used peaveys and sxs for a little more money that may be better.

    I like the Washburns ive played. I cant comment on that particular bass but the more expensive CB series bass i played was very very nice.
  4. My silvertone is obviously just a starter but I wanted the washburn to have an active p bass along with the silvertone passive p bass. I'd like to get a squier 60's classic vibe jazz bass as well, maybe 6 m months or so down the road...but I figured for $100 it would be good to practice on and be able to practice set ups and string changes on for a newbie...
