HM 526 neck / fretboard
« on: April 20, 2010, 03:21:19 PM »
Ok, so I was showing off my prospective next purchase (half the money saved; must convince roommate he doesn't need my rent money ;) ) to a buddy last night, and he was wondering if there was anywhere to get the carbon fiber fretboard from independantly.

Or even if Washburn sold them separately.


Anyone know?

No, Washburn does not sell the fingerboards separately.

Shame.


However, it does mean that once I acquire my 526, I won't leave him alone with it for any length of time.

I'd come back to find he'd removed the neck.

Next dumb question (note, I'm writing this at 3 AM, so I may regret asking this in the morning), but is the 526 only US made?

I've a new one online for a great (perhaps too great) price, but unlike all other ads for them, doesn't say Crafted in the USA.

Washburn makes import version of the 526
the WM24VF, WM24V & WM24
none of those has the Carbon glass epoxy composite fretboard,
they either come with a phenolic or rosewood fretboard.
