Bought this with the intention to defret it as the piezo and Equis preamp are excellent plus XLR and jack for recording. Incoming Godin A4 means I’m moving it on.
Very cool looking bass in great condition, price includes postage in the UK in fitted Black Rat hard case, also in great nick
On-Board Electronics with 4 Band EQ
The Washburn AB10 electro-acoustic bass comes fitted with an on-board Equis Crystal active preamp. A high-quality preamp with very low noise making the AB-10 a great acoustic bass for studio recording as well as a live performance bass.
In addition to the standard jack socket, the AB-10 electro-acoustic bass also features a balanced XLR out so you’ve got more options when connecting to a mixer or audio interface. A piezo bridge pickup is used for precise reproduction of your playing.
Integrated 4-band EQ allows you to adjust your tone until you find exactly the sound you want. You can also control volume and phase for added customisability over your output.
For comfort during playing and easy transport, the Washburn AB-10 has a slim, shallow body yet still produces lovely, deep bass frequencies.
The AB10’s top is made of spruce while the back and sides are mahogany with quarter sawn, scalloped sitka spruce bracing.
The body features a cutaway design to make accessing the higher frets easier; great for solos, lead-bass playing and more melodious bass runs.
The 34” scale neck is made of mahogany with a rosewood fretboard holding 23 frets. A 40mm ABS nut, rosewood bridge and Grover Exclusive tuners complete the hardware.
