Natural Washburn XB-600 w/Smith strings. Lined fretless. It's probably about a '97 or '98. I bought it barely used at Christmas in '98. It seems like Washburns have a pretty bad rep on Talkbass . I can't answer those objections because this is the only one I've played extensively. I really like it. When you turn up the bass pot all the way, it has massive...huge...deep tone. I replaced it with a '96 MIA Fender Jazz Deluxe V Active (needed frets) and the deepness just isn't there. Not knocking the Fender--I love it, it just doesn't seem to have the same "thickness" of lows. If you roll the bass pot to about 20% and go with the front pickup, you get that lovely mwwaawhwhhh sound that fretlesses are known for. General condition is generally excellent. There was a large sticker on the back at some point, which was removed before I bought it, however, it's still darker where that was. Obviously, doesn't affect playing. Fretboard is in good condition and shows very little wear. I only played the instrument about twice a week for the last five years (play at church--1 practice, 2 sunday worship services). It's a three knob/1 toggle control config. One master volume, toggle for F/FR/R pickups, and bass and treble controls. Please e-mail me if you are interested. Asking $300, although for a local cash sale, I'm open to offers. If I didn't really need the cash, I wouldn't be selling it.
