Discuss Basses and Bass Playing / need help with bass
« on: June 06, 2004, 05:32:51 AM »
Usually the first two numbers tell the year it was made, but yours must be an exception. Washburn started making basses in 1978. Call the company and I'll bet someone there knows. It's an 800 #. How does your bass sound?

If your truss rod is adjusted up by the head then a quarter turn counterclockwise will start to bring the strings off the neck. Just turn the truss rod a quarter of a turn each time, retune and see if you have the strings where you need them. You may have to do this several times. If the truss rod is adjusted near the body turn it clockwise to get the strings off the least this is the directions for the Washburns I've owned. Hope this helps.

Is that a hollow body bass? I'll bet the Washburn case for their hollow body would fit. There are companies on the internet that sell Oscar Schmidt on ebay. Some of them are authorized Washburn dealers and you can email them or call them. Check it out. Just bring up Washburn bass ebay and it'll come up.

Yes, they are 34 inches. All of the Washburns have 34 inch necks.

I believe the Washburn book has a picture of one of them in it. They had a double cutaway didn't they? Order that book from your libarary, it's fun reading ,too. I think it's called Washburn 100 years of Guitar History.

Discuss Basses and Bass Playing / how?

I guess it's practice, practice, practice. Once you really know a song it is easier to play it faster. Playing the Bb on the E string as regular basis can start getting you to play up the neck a little more where the frets are closer together. It'll require you to stretch your hand more and lead you to play faster. Not hat you can't play more than this one note up there, try playing the A, Bb,D, G, and 2nd Ab all in the 2nd position on a regular basis.

Well, the ones I bought were Rotosound Jazz strings. They give the T24 a real smooth jazz sound. I don't know how they would sound for slap'but I don't do any slap bass, just jazz stuff and big band music.

I believe your bass weighs about 9 lbs. and the gig bag about 2 lbs.

Well, I bought a set of 45 to 105 flat wounds and they are just a little larger than the originals so the originals had to be extra lights. That T24 with the screwed up pot probably does need some fixin' but I'm not sure a guitar store would keep it a couple weeks if you called and set a date to bring it in. More like a few days I would think. Does your bass have a nice feel to it? Mine sure does.

The copmany has an 800 number here and you can ask the factory anything. From Deutschland you probably will have to Email them. They have responded to me several times. I believe that bass to about 1990, but don't quote me on that. Good luck.

It sounds like it got bumped or something at the shop where you bought it, at home or something like that. You can find a quality musical insrument place that'll fix that for 20 bucks plus parts.

I've had mine now for about 6 weeks and I like it even more now. It does have a really nice sound. And it is a beautiful instrument.

I believe the first two numbers tell the year it was made. I bought a T24 Taurus in Feb. and the first two numbers of my serial number are 03.

All this means is that some people in Vietnam are going to get whipped and then ,instead of sharing the same bed with a fellow factory worker, they're going to have to sleep outside in the rain. At least that's the story line if you believe what they say on TV. I just bought a T24 which is also made in Vietnam and it is the best bass I've played. Absolutely beautiful, and pictures don't do it justice.
