Washburn XB600
It is a model customized by Bantam guitar workshop in Paris
removal of all electronic active selectors: it delivers pure sound from what it was in the belly: good wood good round
they made me a pickguard to hide the holes in the knobs retités


Handle end for 6 strings
very good access to acute
well balanced, light
the sound is binary, as there is no setting: we love it or hate it
Sounds wood, that's all
is very accurate but not modern (or so you have to dig in preamp)


I play on a Gallien Krueger at noon with the settings: nothing to add or remove, I take it as it is


I have only criticized him: his output level a little low
is compensated at the input gain of the amplifier, which is fine because it delivers no background noise
low nature and uncompromising

Washburn XB600
Made in USA.
24 Cases, two microphones in Washburn W671 handle and 673 Bridge.
Easel-like Wilkinson.
Buttons: Volume Generale, bass, treble, and a micro selector 3 positions.
Channel attached by six screws.


The handle is very nice. It is not huge and I think the change from 1 May to 1 June strings is really insurmountable.
Access to acute is really easy.
It is agréble to play. But it would have been better a hollow back to Warwick. But it's still a good average so low I think it's going. It is really light, light as a 4-string Jazz Bass (with respect to a Ergodyne 705 on which I play, everything is light anyway lol).
The sound is fairly easy to solve.


I think it suits a lot of music style.
The bass is deep, it does not force the mediums, and there are a lot of treble.
I prefer when you put the mic selector in the middle (I think it's both pickups combined) with acute low-level and a lot of bass that sounds a little Jazz Bass.
In any case, it is better not to adjust treble in depth because the highs are already present.


I've had about 6 months. I bought on a whim I do not use it that much. Am to 4 strings.
I like the sound, but I do not like its fragility. Just do not be careful when changing the strings and that's full of traces of strings on the body.
I have played on another 6-string before buying, making a Korean brand I forgot it was not great. A good look but the sound was not there ...
It is a good low anyway, a good sound. The finish is not exactly top notch but that's what it is.
I buy it back cheaper, but still. JMe'm a little ripped off. She came back in just € 450.
