Choosing a guitar
« on: October 10, 2008, 07:58:27 AM »
Hi people!
Not posted in this forum for a long long time.
So what i wanted to know which washburn electric guitar should i buy.I have a budget of around 400 - 450$.I am currently drifting towards either of the X33,X30 or WI64.Which would a better guitar?I currently own a WT-4V which is a floyd-rose equipped guitar.I mostly play Rock,Heavy metal,punk and some blues also.
PS- Anyone knows any websites that will ship the guitar worldwide?
Thanks,
RoCk On

RoCk,

Find yourself a guitar shop and play these guitars. Judge for yourself. The X series and the Idols are quite different from each other.

hmmmmm- well, for me, the neck is the most important part of an axe.......everyone's neck preference is different.....so it is a gamble to buy any axe model if you know not the neck.....check your local craigslist every day......you may find a bargain washburn and can try it before buying it......jim

another alternative- guitar centers seem to have an unconditional 30 day return policy on anything.....this may even apply to musician's friend mail order......perhaps music go 'round offers the same deal.....cheerio, jim
