Features of XB 500
« on: June 20, 2017, 11:55:20 AM »
Hello guys, I talk from Brazil.
I bought recently a XB 500 use, and I don't have the entire information about the wood use to construct this bass.
Somebody can help with this?

Edilson.

Hello and welcome to the Washburn forum,

I'm Ric, I own a few Bantam bass.. namely XB400, XB500, and XB600. I don't remember exactly what wood they used.. if your serial number starts with letter 'S'.. it is made by Samick Korea.. which later open a factory in Indonesia.. MEKer may know more on the Bantam series bass.  There is a Washburn bass club in Talkbass - https://www.talkbass.com/threads/the-official-washburn-club-part-3.1060572/page-324#post-20150682  I'm sure someone can answer your question on bass specs.
