Dan Lenard here, at Luthiers Access Group. Have you seen the Washburn ad in the October '02 issue of BP ? Page 67. "Never following trends Washburn sets the pace with a new line of VERY UNIQUE basses. Adorned with high-end components and sporting fresh, ORIGINAL body designs,our new basses will set the new bass standard." Take a look at the bass on the left and the bass on the right - look familiar ? These "new, unique and original" basses have been made without the knowledge, permission, or acknowlegement of Marleaux basses and Jerzy Drozd. Players, what do you think about this ? I wouild appreciate your reactions.
