hey maybe you can help I.D. this axe?
« on: June 08, 2009, 02:13:58 PM »
posted questions to the general elec. guitar list .....but no one had the correct info for me. perhaps you X-series Xperts can provide some pertinent facts specific to my new purchase... an x-series Washburn X-16 G14 , string through body guitar with a black body and grey top that has a very subtle ( not the new colorful skull artwork but an older skull design that is more like a sepia tattoo)....skull design on the butt.
                                         looks like the guitar was only available in Brazil so i'd like to know details about the materials and pickup output ( it has washburn's ....not the egnater ones)...when it was made? how much it sold for new? etc.....
                                           this superstrat plays like a dream and sounds way beyond it's price. i'm impressed. there is a pic of it at musical grellmann.com.br. thanks !!!!!!!!!!!!

those guitars were about $250-$300 when sold new

basswood body, maple neck, rosewood fretboard

very nice neck profile
there is no money above the 5th fret..........but its a great place to hang out

thanks guys !!!! also got an email from the WASHBURN home office as well with some facts. it'll take me awhile.......but i will certainly take a pic of it for everyone's input and time. thanks again . finding a jem like this dirt cheap always spreads good vibes. i like the sound of the pick-ups even ...not real loud and ballsy but nicely voiced (with a seymour duncan JAZZ type of tone) and i  won't put my usual DiMarzio X2N in the bridge since it has a sweet sound just as is...with all 3 pup  switch positions .....their own thing.  an ibanez rg 350 mdx will get the DP 102 laying around begging to be electrified......... later.
