My band had a gig one night, my Fender Jazz bass was in the repair shop (oops), so I was able to borrow one of these from a friend for the night. It's not a bad bass. It's not a great bass. It got the job done, i just didn't like it all that much. The weight was proportioned sort of weird and the neck just felt odd in my hands. It sounded pretty good though, warm and punchy. I've played with a hundred different bass models, and this one is somewhere in the middle.

    Comments about Washburn Taurus T24 Neck-Thru Electric Bass Guitar:

    i was looking for a good value in a bass, and I think this was the right choice for me. I have found that Washburn instruments give me a lot of bang for my buck. The t24 bass came to me in great condition (it was an open box deal) with all the extras (gig bag) that would have been included with a brand new bass, even a few I did not expect (an inexpensive cable and strap). The bass needed a bit of set up out of the box, but nothing major. The action was okay but I adjusted the intonation on two strings and I smoothed out a few of the frets. Once again, nothing major, just what I would do with any new guitar, at any price point. The bass looks beautiful and plays nicely, no fret buzz or flat sounding strings. I love the through neck and it has excellent sustain. Some reviewers have said it isn't good for slapping, but I disagree. I've been getting all the tones I want out of it. I am very happy with this purchase. It would have been a good deal at full price, but even better with the open box deal.

      I promised myself that when I retired music would become even more a part of my life. This is my second bass and by far my best. It looks great hanging on the wall with my other guitars. Plays and feels great too. Musician Friend met my best price as well.

        I've had about a week of getting a good feel on this and I must say I'm impressed. It feels perfect in my hands. I laughed when I realized how horrible I had sounded before.

        This is a fantastic instrument for anyone interested in punk, rock, jazz, or funk. If you want to play metal or hard rock, go elsewhere.

        Love This Bass!

        By Jason Offerman

        from Buffalo

        Comments about Washburn Taurus T24 Neck-Thru Electric Bass Guitar:

        I am in love with this bass. This has been my primay bass for the last six or seven years and I would not change that for anything. I did do a few modifications to mine and changed the pickups to a nice set of EMG active pickups and also had the truss rod, action, and bridge adjusted. This made a HUGE difference in the quality of the bass. With the new set of pickups and a proper set up, this bass becomes only better. I suggest that if any bassist interested in this bass or that has one to use a Sonic Maximizer either as a rack piece or as a foot pedal. This made my sound become fuller and brought out the highs and lows nicely. I suggest this bass for anyone.
        I love the neck on this bass. I like thinner necks on basses and this one is perfect for me. The thinner neck allows me to move up and doen the fret board much simpler. The pickups are not very good to start off with. I found that my sound was a little muddy when I would play through an amp. Other than that this bass is amazing. The wood finish looks great and it plays very well.
        Seeing as how this bass went up since I bought mine, I would say that the value of this bass just keeps going up.

        Comments about Washburn Taurus T24 Neck-Thru Electric Bass Guitar:

        I've owned this bass for about three years now. I'm mainly an acoustic or electric guitarist but every now and then i like to slap some bass and man you can't beat this quality for the price. The neck just feels good too. Has a nice action. The pickups will give you a wide range of tones from super bassy to a punchy treble. Love her.

        Comments about Washburn Taurus T24 Neck-Thru Electric Bass Guitar:

        I bought this bass new over a month ago, and if it got damaged(I doubt it), Id definitely buy the same model again.It looks great, and I couldnt find any scratches or dents in the finish. The frets are well fitted, and the nack feels nice and fast.I play it through a small Behringer combo, and the sounds from the pickups is great! If you can get them to sound gnarly (I did),you get a great sound for everything from Muse to Death Metal. The smooth jazz sound is great for walking and playing chords.The one thing it doesnt excel at is slapping, but you cant have everything.
