    Mint condition Washburn (wait, hear me out!) XB900, top-of-the-line US made 4-string bass. Features include

    - 2 piece maple neck w/ very fast satin finish;
    - rosewood or pau ferro fretboard w/ 24 frets;
    - lightweight swamp ash body with flawless, beautiful stonewash blue finish;
    - Basslines Musicman pickup and Basslines 3-band preamp;
    - Buzz Feiten tuning system;
    - quick-release bridge.

    Light, fast, punchy and loud! I tried this bass against a G&L 1500 and the Washburn had it beat terms of tone, fit & finish. Only selling because my slapping sucks and I have too many instruments lying around. Lists for $1499, sells new for $850; asking $650 but open to offers. Email for pics.

    I'm not in a position to buy this one from ya, but I can vouch that these are sweet basses! I've played a few of them and have been rather impressed; post a pic if you can as I've seen the exact finish that you described and it's killer!
