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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Great Bass for tight budget

By Daniel LaManna

from Orlando, FL

See all my reviews

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 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.

    Awesome Bass

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

    I don't know why everyone is ragging on this bass. Sure it isn't a Warwick/Fender, but it is one hell of a bass. I've been using it for a little more than a year, and I have no complaints. Awesome slap and pop, handles low tuning, and not too heavy or light. Your money will not be wasted in my opinion. I've been playing bass for about 5 years now, and this bass is awesome.

      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.

      Amazing

      By Stash

      from Northwest Pennsylvania

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

      I had gotten this bass for my birthday a few months ago, and I have to say, it is one of the nicest basses I have played on. Don't let the price of this bass fool you, usually basses on the lower end of the 'price spectrum' are usually to be found that those basses are of horrible quality; but this bass, is being sold for a price not worthy of it's quality, the woodworking on the body and neck is amazing, no flaws what-so-ever, the pick-ups are beauriful sounding (even in the higher registers of the neck), I can EQ this bass to any sound I want. If I were you, I would recognize that this bass is a steal, and would get it in an instant. If you do, it will soon be ranked as (or with) your best bass(es). Get it today.

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

      This is a great Bass for the money!All the features and hardware you would find on a bass that cost twice as Much! I own a few washburn Guitars from the mid 80's and still till this day think they are better than a most at double the price. Been Playing Bass over 35 years now and just love the feel of the neck and the warm sound this bass has to offer.

      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.

        I was worried I wouldn't like the bass. But Washburn came through with a solid neck thru bass. It turned out to be every thing I hope it would, and plays like a dream right out the box, even came with good string on it.

                I have been wanting this very guitar for 5 years now so I was heartbroken to receive this bass and it died after playing it once. The only reason I even gave it 3 stars is because MF customer service was stellar and allowed me to exchange with a lesser priced guitar.
