Hello everyone. I am late to Washburn basses,but now i have 2 and,just purchased my 3rd one on EBay.
It is this bass that i need a little info on,if someone can help i would appreciate it.

 I just purchased a XB 400 and,mainly i got it to balance out my arsenal.So i have been looking for an  xb 400 for about a month and,i chose this one because it looked well cared for and,clean.I sent the guy a best offer and,went to bed.AFTER TOSSING AND,TURNING FOR AN HOUR,I KNEW I WOULD KICK MY OWN SELF IN THE BUTT IF SOMEONE PURCHASED THIS BASS,SO I GOT OUT OF BED AND,WENT AND,GOT MY NEW BABY.

This is where the fun starts.
I tell our guitarist,GOT A NEW BOOMER LAST NIGHT. Pull it up and,let him check it out. He is looking at it and,says

MAN ,LIMITED EDITION ,CUSTOM SHOP!!!   THIS IS A SWEET BASS BRO.

I have no idea what he is talking about.So i go over and,look. SURE ENOUGH,this CB400 has a limited edition,custom shop sticker on the back by the neck joint. :o
I HAD Not LOOKED AT ALL OF THE PICTURES,THIS WAS NEWS TO ME.

So my guitarist being kinda anal starts comparing this CB400 to go ogle images  and,says this is different,this is different.I CANT TELL.
Anyway he sucks me into the quest and,we devote HOURS UPON HOURS RESEARCHING THIS XB400. NOTHING.

If anyone can provide a grain of information about this boomer,we would all appreciate it and,maybe we could get some sleep soon.

Seriously we are just stumped.Any suggestions on how to solve this mystery will be received warmly.
 THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. -BENNIE.
