    Hi all!

    I was just wondering... I've owned Washburn XB500 5 string bass for about 5-6 years now. And I've always liked it, but i'm kinda in the market for Warwick bass now.
    What I'm wondering is, in those 5-6 years I've owned this bass I've hardly seen anything written or talked about it. Does anyone know these basses and/or have some opinions on them? I really would like to get some comments on the Washburn series..especially XB500 if anyone knows it.

    Thanks!
     
  2. why do you need opinions on a bass that you already own?

    Just for curiosities sake.....

    I'm quite happy with it. I've read a lot of reviews on all kinds of basses, their strong points, their weak points etc. But I haven´t seen anything like that for my bass (Washburn XB500). I was just wondering what professional musicians think of it.
    As I said I'm very happy with it....I'm just curious :)
