Hi.  I have a Washburn XB-120 Pro and I have a Fender Standard Precision, and to me the necks are identical.   After playing regularly for years you learn your instrument, and when you pick up another, it feels odd...but the first time I played the Washburn I felt like I was playing my Fender!  The only difference was the Washburn was newer and lighter in weight!

My answer would be yes!

Now...I have a question for you!  Since you menitoned your bass is an XB-100, that has to be very similar to the 120!?  {Reference my other posting here.}  I'm trying to find out what year this series was made, and what the approx. cost is new?  The website doesn't list this model.   [I bought mine at a yard sale for $200.]  

Thanks.

i found out that there is a small difference in the necks, the heel is slightly shorter than f*nder necks.

btw my xb100 was made in 2002 in china, it cost me 279euro new. i saw the xb120 there but i dont like the arm contour on the body.
