Hi!
I`ve just bought washburn x-30 in Moscow but the guitar doesnt look like the same model on this web-site catalog. Has anyone got the same one? Why does it look so? Prototype?

Wow, I like that.  Not a big fan of the headstock but the rest is very nice.

In Russia guitar plays you?

Drefen, thank you!

There is just one Washburn dealler in Russia.

I wonder why the headstock looks differet from the same model guitar on this web catalog..
Also it has Bill Lawrence U.S.A. and Head Hunter humbuckers which is different from specification on Washburn web-site

Hi millenium!

Actually in Russia people prefer Ibanez for some reason.
Most of deallers here provide Ibanez, Fender, Epiphone, Kramer, Jackson....
It is harder to find Washburn, Fernandes, Yamaha and even Gibson..  may be because of it about 60% of russian guitarists have Ibanez.
Which one is the most poppular in the US?

Now I saw your x30 in this topic.
I replied to you at another topic.
It is indeed a strange model...
Reminds me very much of my very first electric, a Jap Cyclone.
The pups are stock? You must be very happy with them I think.
What was the price?
Man, I think Washburns are the most honest guitars... Along with Corts...

Enjoy it!

pickups: Bill Lawrence U.S.A. and Head Hunter humbuckers.

dont know how well they are since there is nothing to compare with.
before buying x-30 I had used Phil Pro with noname pickups for 3 years.
and now washburn gives me great feelings when I play on it, espaccially I enjoy with that thin fingerboard.

This is the outrageous 360 euros aprox. !!!!! Very good price! Where is it made?
The bridge pickup is Bill Lawrence, is it good???  The Headhunter neck is not bad (used to have a pair of them in my X50q before the Tone Zones) but if you want something more , you should try Duncan or DiMarzio.
If you want  tips for pickups and mods, don't hesitate to ask.
