I have owned two Washburn BB4 basses, which are basically the same as the BB14 with just different pickups I believe. My first BB5 was made in Korea and the second in Indonesia. The fit and finish on both basses were outstanding and the electronics were really very good with a lot of variation in tone. The neck is thicker like a Precision, the basswood body is contoured and comfortable with a very low cut for very easy accessibility to all 24 frets. The hardware is quite substantial and does not seem cheap like that on the newer Squiers. When worn with a strap, it's very comfortable and properly balanced. Compared to other basses in it's price range, the Washburn seemingly blows everything else out of the water. So why isn't it more popular? Unfortunately, rather than being able to formulate their own decisions and find what really is the best bass for them, some people would rather base their purchase by brand name and a musician who plays them. The opinions of this bass are likely prejudiced before anyone lays a hand on them. Which is too bad but not a surprise when you've just played somewhere and someone who was watching and listening asks you,... "What kind of bass is that?" Truly a lot of bass for the buck that can help make you sound pretty good.
