I was greeted by a chap called Dave and i explained i was interested in buying another guitar, a Fender Stratocaster to be precise. I explained i wanted to try a few options and in particular i was attracted to flashy looking guitars. I selected several to play and Dave took me to a practice room where i spent a couple of hours playing different guitars. His knowledge was excellent and he was very patient. Dave listened to what i wanted as a musician and provided the right equipment when i needed it followed by advice on the differences between each one. I settled on a very good guitar and a couple of pedals. If you are going to buy from PMT, GO TO THE BIRMINGHAM STORE.

Overview

Fantastically priced electro-acoustic bass with beautiful sound and great presence in a relatively small body. Comfortable and fun to play.

Affordable Price Tag, Professional Sound

Washburn have been making instruments for over 130 years so they’re no strangers to producing acoustic instruments.

If you’ve ever seen an episode of the classic MTV Unplugged TV series then, more than likely, the acoustic bass you saw in action was a Washburn bass. The Washburn acoustic bass guitar is favoured by many artists due to its professional level of playability and sound quality and they don’t break the bank either!

Constructed for Great Sound

The Washburn AB5BK electro-acoustic bass guitar has been constructed to give you great sound and playability.

The body features a spruce top with mahogany back and sides with a cutaway to allow easy playing of the higher frets. Great for bass solos and more melodious bass lines.

For added comfort and ease of portability, the body of the AB5BK acoustic bass is relatively small. Fitting somewhere between a full-on dreadnought and a skinnier thin-line style bass, the AB5B has the best of both worlds.

The AB5B delivers awesome sound with great low end and good projection with enough volume to be nicely audible alongside other acoustic instruments, even when unplugged.

On-Board Electronics

The AB5B acoustic bass features one of Washburn’s own premium Equis acoustic pre-amplifiers. The pre-amp is powered by a 9V battery and receives its signal from a piezo-pick up fitted in the bridge.

Also on the Washburn AB5B, you’ll find some powerful EQ options allowing you to adjust bass, mids, treble and the overall ‘presence’. An integrated “Phase” button allows you to switch the phase of your audio signal to help eliminate feedback when performing.

Professional Level Playability

The mahogany neck of the AB5B is relatively slim so it’s really easy and comfortable to play. The fretboard is rosewood with 22 jumbo size frets.

The cutaway design of the mahogany and spruce body means it’s nice and easy to reach for the higher frets should you need to.

Suitable for all sorts of styles and extremely playable, the Washburn AB5B is a great electro-acoustic bass coming in at a very nice price point.
