Washburn Announces Sonamaster SB1 Bass

Washburn SB1PTS Bass

Beginning bassists have a new option with the Washburn Sonamaster SB1 bass. The entry-level instrument, which comes in Black and Tobacco-Sunburst finishes, is inspired by their ’80s models in its body shape, reverse headstock, and offset position markers.

It’s built with an alder body, maple neck, and fingerboard. Washburn fits it with a P-style pickup and passive electronics for an old school vibe.

The Washburn SB1 will be available soon with a street price of $179.
