Hi
I was looking for Washburn info about this guitar but is not in catalogue.... Apparently the diferences for HB32 DM are, distressed pickups covers and natural colour Rosewood fretboard. Please can someone confirm this?
I'm tempte buying that guitar online and would like to have more info.

Thanks

Welcome José,
I'm not familiar with the HB33 DM designation. I own a HB35, and know the HB32....

Do you have a photo? Or can you post the description of the HB33?

I can tell you this though, if it is the same as the 32 except for cosmetics, then it is a fine guitar. There are several folks on here who have one. You could search for that guitar and get there opinions.

Thanks for your replay Tio Kimo

I have seen here
http://www.washburn-france.com/categories/145-Hollowbodies.html

When i make a search on google only French sites show, could be only a European model...?

Aparentky must be a HB 32 DM, with that plus cosmestic differences...

Seems to me it is simply a different designation of the same guitar, for a different market. I don't know whether that is the French market or European in general. That looks just like -32's I've seen.

What is is listing for, american? I usually see them in the $350.00 range, which to me seems fair.

good luck!!

The French add says that it's an HB-30 in Mahogany with an aged finish.
