Idol questions
« on: December 17, 2011, 12:36:54 PM »
Hi All,
I am new here and have used the forum to research a lot about a Washburn that I have purchased.
I ordered a WI100 carbon black from WMS.

I have a few questions:

The guitar is supposed to be delivered today. I have read that you need to keep it in the box for 24 hrs to adjust to the local climate. Is that true?

What year were the WI100 build. I do not see them in the current catalogue. And the internet is returning that that is a 2011 model.

How does the WI100 compare to the other models?

The pickups are Randall or Randell Egnators UL and SL. Apparently a name used without authorization. What do these compare to.

If the guitar arrives in good condition (never dealt with that company before). I am considering an upgrade on the pickups. I am looking into the Alumitones from Lace.
The only post about that wasn't by a very polite user.
My question is if the Alumitones can just replace the original Pickups and if the VCC can still be hooked up, or if new tone pods need to be installed instead of the VCC pods.

Thanks in advance for your help and responses.
