        Comments about Washburn Force 4-String Bass Guitar:

        I play several instruments but have only been playing bass guitar for about 2 years, but I'm having a great time. I started with a good used 'learner' base that has worked well, but it was time to move up to something better. This is it. As soon as I put my hands on this bass I fell in love with it. I am a retired Sr. in my mid 60's and I play with several classic jazz bands and smaller groups. I love this bass. It is fantastic and a great value at a very fair price. I have tried many basses and this easily compares or beats other bases at two or more Xs the price.

        Fast and Beautiful

        By BigSkyBass

        Comments about Washburn Force 4-String Bass Guitar:

        Before ordering this bass I had read many reviews on it and did just about as much research on the bass as I could. So, when I ordered it I knew that I would be getting a killer bass for the money. What I didn't know is just how much I'd be blown away by the value. First off the fit and finish of this thing is awesome. It is one of the most beautiful basses I've ever seen. As far as features, the active electronics have excellent sound, the grover tuners which incorporate the buzz feiten tuning system are also a pleasure to use. Playing it is a true pleasure, with the neck being super fast. It works perfect for the music that I play and is VERY slappable =)If you're on the fence about this bass or just want an awesome one without spending thousands then definately get the Force 4!

        Comments about Washburn Force 4-String Bass Guitar:

        After trying several bass guitars in this price bracket I found this to be one of the best. I sits comfortably, lovelly to play and good value for the price. To say that I am impressed is an understatement.

        So THATS what a pleasant surprise means...

        Comments about Washburn Force 4-String Bass Guitar:

        Well, it was really more out of curiousity than actual expectation that I asked to see the Washburn. They didn't (from what I understood) have a fabulous reputation for producing basses, and the name seems rather attached to Country and Westen genres more than funk or rock (which I was aiming for). However, the description looked good, almost perfect, for the slap bass I was looking to buy to compliment my Fender. Exotic woods, actice electronics, a thru-neck, 24 frets, really a very exellent stats line. Well, I plug it in (obviously) and the first few notes a I pop off sound exellent, not music man exellent, but superior to many basses I had tried out (some which reached to the $800 range) the pop is crisp, the slap sounds meaty and, when left to it, resonates almost deafiningly. Finger style isn't quite as impressive, but the clear and pretty treble combines with the great midrange to produce some very good classic rock tones, with the deep end really boosted for a good hard rock/metal tone if you do a little nob fiddlig. Really though, the biggest draw for me is the exellent slap and pop sound, its got a great sound for funk (especially if you play slap style like I do). The features of the bubinga wood body, thru neck, and especially the active electronics are very extensive, expecially for a bass of this price. The sound is fantastic, the only (very slight) problem is the spread of the strings is a little wide, but that provides for an easier time to get your fingers under the string to play a pop. Bottom line, this bass is perfect for the price, everything you could want (and expect), especially if you play funk.

        Can't Beat This Value

        Comments about Washburn Force 4-String Bass Guitar:

        I picked up this bass about a year ago and have been blown away by the value. This bass plays great, the action is low and fast and the tone is amazing. I did a quick set up and was off and running. It stays tuned incredibly well. This bass is as good as many that cost twice as much. Our band plays a lot of different types of music from blues to metal and it sounds great no matter what. If you need a real good bass for not a lot of money, this is the one to get.

        Why spend more

        Comments about Washburn Force 4-String Bass Guitar:

        I was looking for a good value bass and decided to give this one a try. I haven't been disappointed. It plays great, sounds great, looks great. I play pretty much everyday since I'm in a working band. We play rock, blues, alternative stuff and it all sounds good. One of my friends who has been playing bass professionally for over 30 years could not believe this bass only cost what it does. This bass is an amazing value.
