Get great acoustic bass tone without feedback onstage

Rich in low/midrange frequencies, acoustic bass guitars are very susceptible to resonant feedback in live performance settings. Washburn's patented Soundslot technology makes the AB40VSK much less prone to feedback, while maintaining the wooly thump you want from an acoustic-electric bass.

Custom piezo pickup is ready for performance

The Washburn AB40VSK comes equipped with a custom piezo pickup for great plugged-in performance. It's got a wide sonic range, with bass and treble controls to help you fine-tune your sound to your amplifier, the room, or your recording needs.

Maple topped with spruce - a classic tonewood combination

Maple and spruce have always been choice tonewoods for acoustic instruments, so it's no surprise the Washburn AB40VSK sounds sweet. Spruce is known for exceptional projection and a wide tonal range. With the added brightness and articulation provided by the maple back and sides, the AB40VSK has a rich voice that's great for a wide variety of musical styles.

Washburn AB40VSK Acoustic-electric Bass Guitar Features:
  • Rich-sounding acoustic-electric bass with feedback-fighting design
