Washburn XB-400
« on: November 14, 2012, 04:31:22 AM »
Hi there, I'm about to acquire a Washburn XB-400 in natural finish and I want to know the exact year it is made. The serial number is S4050108. Thanks in advance :)

The Blue Book sez they were made 1994-1999 -- given that, I'd bet on 1994, so an early model. Bets it's got a branded tailpiece & the head says DESIGNED BY GROVER JACKSON, right?

It's my workhorse model, could likely be used to club a rhino to its knees & not go out of tune. But they're vastly unappreciated & go out regularly on eBay for ~$150 so I don't see where they'll ever be collectible.

I agree they are workhorses and are very underated , they can cope with ALL musical situations, I play my XB 400 on sessions and live gigs more than my Fenders or Tobias, ...Pete Bass (Spain)
