    I have one and its really good. Well made, sounds good, looks good. Its made in Vietnam if that makes a difference. I don't know what kind of wood is in the body, but I had to drill out the strap-button holes to put in some strap-locks that I like and that wood was as tough as anything I've dealt with, really solid. I opened the control cavity and things look good there.

    Its a production bass for sure, but very well done.

    BTW... I bought it as a back up and soon after I got it, I found a great deal on a Rickenbacker which is now my #1 and I don't need it, so if there is interest, email me.

    I had a T-14. Washburn gives you a lot for your money.

    A very good bass for the money. Neck through design, and nice to look at as well. I was surprised that you get bass like that for the money.

    I have a T25, and I adore it. Nice low action, it speaks well, even the stock pickups sound really good...

    I shopped for months for the most comfortable 5 string under $1000, and this bass won, hands down. Comfortable, fast neck. Easy access to all the high frets. Very solid, and very professional looking without evoking a specific style of music.

    The only thing I wish I could do with it is get that MM humbucker growl... I can come close by boosting the gain on my amp and really punching it, but it's still not quite there. But I rarely want/need that tone, and the Taurus provides everything else I'd want in a bass.

    Much better than my old beatup J-bass that I played on for years.

    I had one for about a year before I ended up selling it due to needing some quick cash and it was the bass I had that was worth the most. Great build quality! The playability of that thing was pretty amazing, and if you buy it new Washburn has a lifetime warranty against things like the neck getting warped and such, which is good to have on a neckthrough since you can't really replace one.
