not sure yet... first one had issues, waiting for replacement

Comments about Washburn AB45 5-String Acoustic-Electric Bass:

i took a chance on this one, ordering it sight unseen... and unplayed. i had it shipped direct to my house. it's got a nice neck... thinner than the breedlove. it's also shorter and less fat than the breedlove. the strings are very roundwound... but the overall playability is good, and even... and the sound is good, despite the slotted vs. regular sound hole. there were some issues: - during initial unpacking, i noticed that the case was scuffed up in multiple places... not sure why. - when plugged in, the D and A string output was almost zip... and adjusting the individual string trip pots on the back of the guitar made no difference. - i put on different strings, and noticed that the nut slot for the A string was way too deep.. total buzz and no tone when playing the string open, perfectly fine from the first fret up. it was fine with the stock strings, but noticeable unstrung, and with the alternate strings so... after waiting almost a month, it got returned the day after it was received... and another one is on order... i will update this review when i get the replacement. guitar center was great about the ordering and return, and also matched a lower price... no complaints about the customer service! in the meantime, the jury is still out... hope the second one has no issues, as the guitar is comfortable to play, and essentially what i'm looking for... a mid-priced 5-string acoustic bass.

Sounds as beautiful as it looks

Comments about Washburn AB45 5-String Acoustic-Electric Bass:

when I saw this bass i thought it was one of the most beautiful acoustic basses ive ever seen. when i picked it up i noticed the neck is super thin and so is the body. thats better than most ive picked up and the body is too big and uncomfortable. then i strummed it, it has perfectly clear sound with lots of great tone and crisp high ends and deep low ends. when you plug it in it sounds even more clear. this bass it recomended for any style or genre, scince it has a wide viriaty of playability
