New 2011 Washburn X 51VPRO X Series ideas

Always loved how these things played but was never happy with
how they looked so I thought I'd put some Ideas up for a possible
future X-**VPRO model (assuming they don't discontinue the X-series).

Hope the guys at Washburn get wind of these ideas.

I would especially love to see a trans black version be made with
all black hardware and bind plus matching head stock (& black head
stock binding as well)* Original Floyd Rose is a must!

Newest version* (I want this one)














X 51VPRO

Possible New Specs:

-Mahogany Body
-Maple or Mahogany set neck
-Quilted maple carved top
-Original Floyd Rose locking trem & nut
-Ebony fretboard
-Nut width: 43mm:
-Seymour Duncan® '59 reissue neck pickup
-Seymour Duncan® Custom Custom bridge pickup
-3-way toggle switch
-Exclusive Grover® 18:1 gear ratio tuners
-Gloss finish
-Buzz Feiten Tuning Systemâ„¢
-All Black hardware


Possibly with all Black body, neck & head stock binding?


Possible matching Head stock?

Colors:
Quilted Trans Black Burst,
Quilted Trans Blue Burst,
Quilted Trans Green Burst,
Quilted Trans Flame Burst,
Quilted Trans Ice Tea Burst?

Just an idea.

You really are rather good at photoshopping up this stuff.

This certainly looks like the sort of thing Washburn could turn out based on existing line, but who knows what's going to happen. It's all been very quiet since the launch of the new Idol, has anybody seen one in the flesh outside NAMM?

well at least they're not that snot green like all the others


i think the biggest problem with these guitars is the pickup spacing, 24 fret necks make the pickups look all bunched up which, to my eyes, make the guitar look cheap

I regret to inform you all that the X series has now been discontinued. I wish I was told this before I made these concepts. Ohh well, the pictures look good at least lol.

brad22386, they made what your talking about in 2009 called the x200 vpro with grover 18:1,24 fret,SD custom-custom, SD 59, coil tap,licensed floyd rose,maple neck, agathis body,and all black.plays like butter,great tone and sustain originally retailed for $1299 and sold in stores for $799, when they discontinued the model it sold for $349 with washburn delux gig bag and free shipping from world music supply.com , they might still have a few left. Anyway you look at it its a steal. I know I have one.
