    I'm planning to buy a used Washburn XB800. The seller wants about $350. The bass is active and the pickups have "Status" stamped on them. Any thoughts on the quality, sound and reliability of this instrument? Are the pickups made by the same people that make Status basses?

    Ive got an XB800 Bantam as a second bass , could easily be my frontline bass , plenty of honk , well balanced , nice flame-top , gold hardware , 18v electrics , great thin neck with rosewood fingerboard and a BLACK nut [ I dont like those tacky white ones ] . Go for it dude !
