This old washburn???
« on: May 26, 2005, 01:14:15 PM »
Greetings,

I have been trying to figure out the model of my old Washburn bass. I think I bought it around 1981-82. It is the same body shape as the old Force 8 bass,(there's a force 8 on ebay today...) however it has a neck thru body, 3 control knobs, no pickguard. It does not have active electronics. Has both p-style and j-style pickups. The headstock has 2 tuners on each side, not 4 on one like the force basses do. I bought one, it was stolen (burgundy woodgrain color) and bought another (tobacco sunburst) in the same year. I'm wondering if it was a limited edition, prototype or whatever...It still sounds great-better than anything else I've played since...Any ideas?

Thanks!

The first two numbers on the serial number tell the year.
no frets?

It does have frets, rosewood neck...I'll try to post a pic or a link to a pic this weekend...

Thanks,
