    So I recently found and ordered a Washburn XB-900 from GC's used site. I called and asked and they said it was in great shape and all original, despite my concerns:

    -They said it was passive with bart soapbars, not active
    -There is a pickup selector switch where usually on these there is a knob (guy opened it up and said it wasn't modded)

    Here are some pics that they sent me. Does this model look familiar to anyone because google gives me nothing that looks like this. Shipped to my door it only cost me $415 in total which seems to be around the average price on these US washburns.

    Nice looking bass, hope it sounds and plays as nice as it looks.

    I don't understand buying something when you have *no* idea what you're buying. Good luck - hope it works out for you.

    Guy said it was all original, I've got 30 days to return it anyways.

    Might be worth a shot. Not a bad price for a US made Washburn.

    I've bought basses that I've known nothing about.
    First of all.It's a bass.
    It's going to make a bass noise.

    Some don't buy basses expecting them to be perfect.Just playable.
    Some buy an unknown to make upgrades.All they need is a good looking bass body.
    They're confident that they can make it work.

    It's more of me / how I buy things than anything against OP (or anyone else who does it). I am usually trying to fill a void, and have defined goals in mind. I'd probably take a super cheap bass (i.e. <$150) and be OK with it needing work and not exactly knowing what it is. Once I get up near $500 and above though, it's a bit harder for me to spend without having done research and such :). Just two sides of the dice.
