Well, I changed my mind and got the top Model today..I drove 170 miles round trip to pick up my new 5 string bass.
I forgot or the owner forgot to give me the warranty and other paperwork with my new bass.
Am having problems with new bass buzzing on the B string..
Anyone got an Idea ? I dont want to drive 170 miles again.

Would anyone at Washburn Help with the B String buzz?
I live closer to the Mundelien location than the store where I made the purchase. [:D]

I have a Force 5; the B-string is fine, though a little dead, but the G-string lacks any authority in the band environment. Any suggestions?

Try replacing the strings with a fresh set.
D'Addario roundwound strings,either nickel or steel,are a good choice and a good bang-for-the-buck.
Good luck,
