If you had read my earlier post above you'd see I listed the same model you're describing.
They also made a B90 with a flame maple top and a B100 with a solid flame maple body.

B90 listed for 1999.90
B100       for 2199.90

As far as price, they're so rare there's really no data on it that I've seen.
I'd say as low as $350 for a beat up B90 to $700 for a mint B100 would be a good guess.

Please post some pics so we can see this rare bird!

I'm starting a vintagewashburn.com website.  This guitar would fit perfectly on the and hopefully get it out there to let people know about it.  It basically looks like the EC versions of the bass.

Oh man I've been looking for information on this style of bass forever!  I have one of these, jet black but otherwise exactly the same as the multi-colored one pictured.  I love it completely, I got it around 1995 or 1996 new from the local music store.  I don't have any of the paperwork anymore.  I will post some pics as soon as I can, any further info anyone can dig up on these basses would be great.  I think they were either a proto-type or super rare because there's NOTHING I can find other than on this site.

They are the B80/B90 basses - the only Washburn basses with the SEC.  Very rare and nice.
