Bluebuddah's new washburn

You had a good play on it yet?  Hows it holding up against the other washburns?  I like the simple slimline stuff, theyre easy to play for a long time and they sound quite good for saying they are so thin bodied.

its very, very resonant. I stuck the XL500 in there with a coil tap and on the coil  with a clean/slight crunch it sounds brilliant.


its nice and light too!

What do you want to do tomorrow?

Is it well balanced?  I had a Gordon Smith GS1 years ago and it was a bit neck heavy and would tip over if you let go (cos of where the strap butto was too).  When I had my GS2 made, I asked for a slightly thicker body, its still quite light/thin but its well balanced now.

I love those types of guitars, you cant really do anything but play em and play em some more.
