10 dollar bass turns out to be xs-5 washburn
« on: August 01, 2012, 12:10:59 PM »
i picked it up off my neighbour for 10 dollars as he does not play and thought it was broken. i saw it sitting outside in the rain!!
i thought it was a cheap old jap bass worth nothing, until i got it home and realised it was special. i cleaned it and straightened the neck and  love the way it plays. seems to have been really neglected rust,scartches etc but plays fine.
ive owned enough cheap basses to know its got awesome tone etc.
only thing i cant figure out is why its got chicago series on it?- wish it could speak and tell me its history.
