Hello eurotrashed, thank you for your reply.  Basically the Buzz Feiten tuning system is the precise placement between the nut and the saddle. Any nut material may be used. Buzz Feiten uses what they call a shelf nut design. Tuning & intonation is done according to specific, precise pitch offsets. Guitars with LSR, Wilkinson or Floyd Rose Nuts require modification to the fingerboard and nut screw mount holes.  Thanks. [:)]

Check Out these websites for more information and details on the Buzz Feiten tuning system:                 http://www.catalinaguitars.com/buzz_feiten.htm#toTop  Or

Hello BlueBuddha, thank you for your question.  I do not currently maintain a website. The Earvana Compensated Nut has not been applied as of yet...but is an option of interest considered for a special future project.  Thanks. TVH

She is SO unusual!!

I played it for the last 2 nights in Praise team for a Christian conference through a one off Red Fender Prosonic head that I bought from Brad Whitford. Is that combo different enough for ya? The head still has the little blue Property Of Aerosmith sticker with the bands inventory controll # on the back! Not you normal Church rig[;)]

Well, I guess it depends on what you would consider to be the norm.  I wouldn't see any harm in it...just don't play any Love In An Elevator or such. LOL!  That probably wouldn't go over very well. :)

Funny you would use that song in particular as this head was used by Brad in the studio on that album! It is entirely possable that the song may have actually been recorded with this very same amp LOL!

Bought it on ebay from Brad!! I knew from Chris Brads guitar tec that Brad would be listing some stuff last year for sale. I was waiting for one of the Zinky amps to show up. I had no idea until the day after the auction ended what I had really bought though. Chris emailed me on some strange stuff about this one like it having no rec switch in the rear after the Amp tec checked it right before it shipped. I almst had an attack when he opened it up and told me it was a 100 watter!! I grabed the phone and called Zinky who remembered the amp well. He told me he had hand built this one for a particular unnamed artist who stiffed Fender so he just gave it to Brad. It is a true handbuilt one off.
This thing is SCARY!! Fender Blackface Twin like cleans with tons of headroom and a crunch channel that is unreal. It is just STUPID loud but also controlable and sounds incredable at very managable volume levels.
Funny thing is with all the other higher profile stuff Brad had listed it got ignored and only 3 folks bid on it. Thing is this was most likely the most tricked out piece out of the whole bunch of amps he sold and I got it for a song!

I have given so much stuff away over the years at the Lords leading now cool stuff just finds ME! Like me walking into a Washburn dealer that caters to Bluegrass and Coutry players last week and finding the SN 002 USA Dime Stealth that was bought by them at the 2000 NAMM show!

Hello Shrevem, It's great to know of other owners of the WI-64PL.
Washburn...made around 300 of the WI64PL guitars for a specific dealer. They are definitely an interesting and likeable guitar with the pearloid finish and gold hardware. The specs are the same as the WI64DL.  Washburn uses the buzzfeiten tuning system.  The precise placement between the nut and the saddle. Thanks.  TVH. [:)]
