Like this?



Described as follows on nickrundell.com:

Washburn KC100 - basically a poor copy of Mark Knopfler's famous Pensa Suhr, only in Red. I butchered mine back in the day when I couldn't afford an Ibanez RG. It was my main axe for nearly 10 years. It's seen better days, but it's high on character.

Oh - and sorry for the slow response. Welcome to the forum if you're still here.

The guitar in the picture which you guys found is mine. I got it in 2002 and was made in 1989.

Neck thru, very thick paint and I think it's ugly; it's like a jackson SL1 but heavier.

Maple body but doesn't sound like a esp kamikaze, it weird.

Here is the information about this guitar.


This guitar originally equiped with complex electronics, and mine replace the three little switch with a 5-way switch, and a TB4 in the bridge position.

I love this guitar, the neck is thicker than my les paul but more comfortable. And the shape of  headstock is cool. Love it.

am i wrong, or does that flyer give conflicting info? Is a Neck through also considered a variation of a set neck? The text on the left clearly states neck through construction but the inset specs call out set neck construction?

Not that it makes a damn bit of difference. Beautiful guitars.
