Your bass was imported and made in 2006.  Can't give you a value as you didn't post a model. Is it a T-12, T-14, T-14Q, T-14L,  T-14FL, T-24 or a T-25?

Is there a way I can send you a picture of it because I'm not sure what any of that means I know it's a 4 string bass and it has 2 knobs

This is not a production model Taurus.  Can you post a picture of the back of your bass?

You've got a prototype.  A single ABT pickup mounted at the bridge position on a T-24 , neck thru body.  (Passive pickup....doesn't take a battery) Very nice!  Washburn made quite a few Taurus prototypes from 2001 to 2008.  My guess on ,value would, be in the $ 345.00 to
$ 395.00 range.  (The book on a production T-24 would be $ 315.00 to $ 365.00....depending on condition).

Here's another Taurus prototype:

Just the same way as on Talkbass forum you could use a web image and copy the address between the bracket after you press the insert image (first one on the second row of icons on the message editor tool) but you can't download a picture, so use the picture image that you already post on Photobucket (I tried directly from the Talkbass Washburn Club thread and it don't want to work but I have no problems with Photobucket link)
