    I thought about getting a 6-string Washburn after seeing Peter Steele sport his M10. What do you all think of Wasburn basses?

    I have the xb 102 [non bantam] (Don't bother trying to look it up on their site, they are discontinued). It's a P/J and sounds rather nice. But the P could use more definition, so I just use the J in the brigde position, eventually I'll be getting a jazz bass of some sort.

    I got a Washburn X120b, and for it's price, you can't complain about it (2800dkk = 500 USD$ (basses are more expensive in Denmark than the US, so US price might be about 150 or 200 $ cheaper). It's an excellent cheap bass, great soapbox pickups and a really comfy thin neck! and it plays what you want it to play (really loud too, even on a 100watt amp 15"), not sounding like total crap, what more could you ask for for that price?

    My first bass was a Washburn XB100. It was a pretty good P-Bass copy and served me well while learning to play. The neck was very nice, and it was very light.

    Because of my poor finances I'm currently playing Washburn XB-400 bantam (made in Japan) which I bought used for 200 euro, that is less than 300$ and for that price I haven't seen any better bass yet...
    It is very solid and feels great, also sounds very good unplugged as it's well built and it's nice piece of wood but pickups are rather crappy/// all in all - good axe especially for the price;)
