Let me start by saying you will not find a better bass guitar in this price range hands down. The fit and finish is first class. There is not an imperfection anywhere on the instrument. When I purchased this there was 4 of them sitting side by side. Each of them were perfect. The only difference was the depth of the color in the wood. Each of them played the same. Factory setup was very good. The tones that come from this are amazing. Very deep tight punchy lows, very present mids and nice bright sharp high end. For a passive setup it has more punch than any other bass I've played. For comparison I also own an American Fender Precision, a Fender Geddy Lee jazz, a Peavey neck thru Cirrus and a neck thru Aria AVB 100. The Washburn T24 is at that level of instruments. It's a pretty beefy instrument. It's not light by any means, which I like. The neck has a great feel and is quite quick. The pickups have great sound and are very quiet. The weakest link in the package is the pots. I think with better tone pots you could really get better control over the tone adjustments. They are not bad, could be better. Now for the best part. I drove 1 1/2 hours to the Guitar Center in Danvers Mass. to try a Warwick Corvette they had. I had noticed on the web they had 4 Wasburn T24s listed as used so I figured I would check them out also. The Corvette was nice but when I plugged in the T24 I was blown away ! Again, this mid priced bass is as good as anything I have ever played. They had taken these 4 basses in from overstock from another location, therefore they had to sell them as used eventhough they were brand new. I scored this for $252.86 including tax with a coupon. And a nice quality gig back that comes with it. A giveaway at that price. At $499.00 it is still a bargain for something this good. Buy One, you can't go wrong!

My band had a gig one night, my Fender Jazz bass was in the repair shop (oops), so I was able to borrow one of these from a friend for the night. It's not a bad bass. It's not a great bass. It got the job done, i just didn't like it all that much. The weight was proportioned sort of weird and the neck just felt odd in my hands. It sounded pretty good though, warm and punchy. I've played with a hundred different bass models, and this one is somewhere in the middle.

Needs a string thru body bridge for even more sustain lol only thing I changed was add straplocks and put .50, .70,
.90, 1.10 strings on and the sustain a and harmonics are strong

    I've had about a week of getting a good feel on this and I must say I'm impressed. It feels perfect in my hands. I laughed when I realized how horrible I had sounded before.

    This is a fantastic instrument for anyone interested in punk, rock, jazz, or funk. If you want to play metal or hard rock, go elsewhere.

    Awesome Bass for the Price

    By Dustin Nelson

    from San Diego, CA

    Comments about Washburn Taurus T24 Neck-Thru Electric Bass Guitar:

    I was stunned when I pulled this bass out of the box. I love the natural wood and appreciate the non-glossy finish (I hated fingerprints on my old bass). The bass feels extremely solid and doesn't have any imperfections. I'm blown away by the tone. It sounds punchy and crisp. There was a bit of fret buzz out of the box, but now that the bass has adjusted to the temperature and humidity in my house, it plays like a dream. For this price, you can't find a better bass.

    By Russell Stober

    from Iowa

    Comments about Washburn Taurus T24 Neck-Thru Electric Bass Guitar:

    Overall this bass Stars a perfect 10 out of 10
    This Bass is Awsome Got it yesterday perfect it was set up perfect right out of the box in tune also so i know that someone did the quality control and accually played it after it was made the bass is perfect in every way very easy to play looks fantastic and the sound is out of this world and the service of Musicians friend is next to none i got it the next day after i ordered it just flippin AWSOME i have owned alot of basses and this one is at the top of my chart Washburn makes a top quality Bass Guitar
    The Guitar looks Fantastic and plays like a dream the pickups are of very high quality the tuning keys are as smoth as glass and since i dont like active electronics this is perfect for me i hate having to carry 9 volt batteries for my bass that is the dumbest thing i have ever heard been playing for over 30 years
    High Quality Low Price can't get any better than that

    Love This Bass!

    By Jason Offerman

    from Buffalo

    Comments about Washburn Taurus T24 Neck-Thru Electric Bass Guitar:

    I am in love with this bass. This has been my primay bass for the last six or seven years and I would not change that for anything. I did do a few modifications to mine and changed the pickups to a nice set of EMG active pickups and also had the truss rod, action, and bridge adjusted. This made a HUGE difference in the quality of the bass. With the new set of pickups and a proper set up, this bass becomes only better. I suggest that if any bassist interested in this bass or that has one to use a Sonic Maximizer either as a rack piece or as a foot pedal. This made my sound become fuller and brought out the highs and lows nicely. I suggest this bass for anyone.
    I love the neck on this bass. I like thinner necks on basses and this one is perfect for me. The thinner neck allows me to move up and doen the fret board much simpler. The pickups are not very good to start off with. I found that my sound was a little muddy when I would play through an amp. Other than that this bass is amazing. The wood finish looks great and it plays very well.
    Seeing as how this bass went up since I bought mine, I would say that the value of this bass just keeps going up.

    Great Bass for tight budget

    By Daniel LaManna

    from Orlando, FL

    Comments about Washburn Taurus T24 Neck-Thru Electric Bass Guitar:

    I've owned this bass for about three years now. I'm mainly an acoustic or electric guitarist but every now and then i like to slap some bass and man you can't beat this quality for the price. The neck just feels good too. Has a nice action. The pickups will give you a wide range of tones from super bassy to a punchy treble. Love her.

    from Aragón, Spain

    Comments about Washburn Taurus T24 Neck-Thru Electric Bass Guitar:

    I bought this bass new over a month ago, and if it got damaged(I doubt it), Id definitely buy the same model again.It looks great, and I couldnt find any scratches or dents in the finish. The frets are well fitted, and the nack feels nice and fast.I play it through a small Behringer combo, and the sounds from the pickups is great! If you can get them to sound gnarly (I did),you get a great sound for everything from Muse to Death Metal. The smooth jazz sound is great for walking and playing chords.The one thing it doesnt excel at is slapping, but you cant have everything.
