In a moment of clarity, or midlife crisis, I've decided I am purging myself of things I no longer use, let alone need. On the chopping block is this Washburn 8 string bass from the early 1980s, manufactured in the Matsumoku factory in Japan. With the exception of added Schaller strap locks, this neck-thru bass is largely stock. It has chrome and brass hardware, a tobaccoburst (to my eyes) flame maple top, cherry red ash body and neck, rosewood fretboard with unique dot inlays, 22 frets, Dimarzio J and P pickups, two volume and two tone pots, 3 position toggle switch, original case (not in original condition), and a Coffinworm sticker to cover up a botched attempt at removing a strap holder (I acquired the bass in this condition), and a comfortable feeling V-shaped neck profile. This bass was very actively gigged and it has nearly 30 years of scars to prove it, but it still plays very, very well. With this bass, your band won't need a rhythm guitarist.
