From what you found,It seems like everything is different. I just hope I can fly up and down the neck on it.

This is the first time ive bought a guitar without having played it first.
I got this one on Ebay for $115. I was looking for something decent to play
while i here in Iraq. Either way i guess i cant complain for the price.

I got to say. I have a B.C. Rich warlock that i've had for the past 15 years. I really like the thing. 2 years ago i picked up a Washburn N2. I couldn't really decide which guitar i liked better. The Washburn X40 came in the mail a little while ago. I instantly feel in love with this thing. The first thing i noticed was as low the action was. How easy it was to play. How smooth it was. I really can't say enough about this guitar. I was blown away by it(for now). I say for now because i'm out here in Iraq an have no amp to really try this thing out. But thats not really a problem. If I don't like the sound i can just switch out the pickups.

This was really a great find.
