Overall this bass Stars a perfect 10 out of 10
This Bass is Awsome Got it yesterday perfect it was set up perfect right out of the box in tune also so i know that someone did the quality control and accually played it after it was made the bass is perfect in every way very easy to play looks fantastic and the sound is out of this world and the service of Musicians friend is next to none i got it the next day after i ordered it just flippin AWSOME i have owned alot of basses and this one is at the top of my chart Washburn makes a top quality Bass Guitar
The Guitar looks Fantastic and plays like a dream the pickups are of very high quality the tuning keys are as smoth as glass and since i dont like active electronics this is perfect for me i hate having to carry 9 volt batteries for my bass that is the dumbest thing i have ever heard been playing for over 30 years
High Quality Low Price can't get any better than that

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 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.

      Great Bass for tight budget

      By Daniel LaManna

      from Orlando, FL

      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.

      from Aragón, Spain

      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.

      Something to know my friend

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

      I notice my bass needed a complete set up and the finnish on the body is seperating from the wood leaving ugly boils. Making me wish it had only a oil finnish rather than a clear coat. The pick ups are not adjustable and seem to be glued in place even the screw that hold them in place are soft and round off to the turn of a common screwdriver. in a word I find this bass a dissapointment the volume pot are cheep and the impedance blance between both pickups are to say unpredictable while trying to select any sound.

      Tarus T-24

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

      OK, I got my bass "used - as is", it was a sales rep sample and had a few dings in it, a cosmetic flaw near the top strap button and a miss-matched set of strings. I played it and immediately liked the feel and sound. The neck's width is between a j-bass and a p-bass, but it's quite a bit slimmer than most "Fender" type necks. The pickups sound nice, they still have a j-bass like sound but are fuller and are quiet compared to my Fender Standard American and Custom Shop Jazz pickups (they must be stacked pickups). Because the bass is neck through and the neck is 5-ply laminated the neck feels more rigid for its size than other affordable basses I've played. I put some D'Addario XL roundwounds on it and had did a minor truss rod adjustment. I played it out a couple of weeks ago and people commented on my "punchy" tone. The frets are not as level as I would like so I'll probably have to have a light fret dress done, but to be honest I've only had two necks in the last 10 years that didn't need fret work. I think the T-24 is a very comfortable, easy to play bass, that has a good passive sound and overall is a good value in todays market.

      Nice for what it does

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

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

      I own the bass, equipeed with a set of flatwound strings. Obviously not for slapping, but great for jazz playing and jamming, as its not intrusive. I would not reccomend it for metal! Very smoothe, sculptable tone.
