I had an American made Washburn bass at one time and just now looked at the 2017 lineup of basses. It's terrible and disappointing!

Taurus Basses / Where are the Taurus T24 and T25 players?
« on: December 14, 2009, 07:29:15 AM »
The only issue with mine is I don't care for the way it balances. I helped that by putting on Dunlap strap locks that stick out and put the strap out closer to the 12 fret. That aside it is a real nice looking bass. Mine is an early model and according to someone who used to be a sponsor, big wigs at Washburn order special made instruments once a year for their own use. I apparently was shipped on of them because the wood on my bass looks different for any other T24 I've ever seen. More like cocobolo wood or Asian rosewood than mahogany. I really like the dark tone.

Wahburn made 25 of them and they were on sale a couple years ago. I saw one come up for auction in October and it was being sold for 400 bux or some such cheap price.

I've had mine since 2004. It has an amazing neck. Stable and just right. They aren't going to discontiue them.

The T24 is exactly the shape of a Jerzy Drodz but the bottom diminutive horn was on a Washburn first in the late 70's when both horns looked like that. So in my opinion it's like they got Jerzy back.

Very good quality. I've owned more than a few basses and the T24 is my favorite so far. You can get very low string action, they don't go out of tune, the bridges are very functional and the saddles adjust smoothly. Knobs are A1.

I've played for 35 years and never used a pick. Flatwounds and finger style for me.

I'd keep them just low enough not to buzz when you pluck the string at a normal/hard pluck. Any higher and you might get a fatigued hand sooner than later. Not to mention carpel tunnel later in life. Keep them low. You might have to get string-sized files to file the nut a little, but nery little. Do some adjusting, play it for a day or two and do some more adjusting. Take your good old time.

I've had a similar experience with any who's tried mine. Amazing aren't they?

I love my T-24. people that see it are absolutetl amazed at the quality. It sounds so much like a Fender Jazz bass that a high school music teacher I met is going to buy one. Mine has some wicked grain on the body, too. I've only adjusted the neck once in 2 1/2 yrs. and it is bone straight.

Late 70's and the first electric basses that Washburn made.

From the serial number it was built in '04. There were some prototype T14's and T35's made then. If it has one large active pickup it is a T35 I believe. Those never made it into production.

The 19mm and the 21mm, etc., are neck depths.

No, the 3-in-1 oil does not turn to gunk on your bass neck. It just keeps slidin' away. I put the sticky hands question up on the Harmony Central forum and got the 3-in-1 oil answer from many people including one of the mods. It really works. A little oil, like a drop or two, is all you need.

My T24 strings are quite close to the neck. It does not have high action, it's just right. The frets are all the same height. Maybe I got a lemon[:D]. Adjusting the bridge screws is just what they're for! A fine tuning. Sorry your bass needs so much, but mine is perfect.
