Build quality
« on: July 07, 2015, 01:38:45 PM »
Is there a build quality with the Washburn guitars? I returned my LSJ743STSK as it had scratch marks on the back and the shop got me another from the UK distributor. That had scuff marks on the front each side of the fingerboard where it meets the body like someone had rubbed up and down with sand paper. It also had a chip out of the side of the neck just below the nut.

Not too impressed so far. I have never had a poor Epiphone but I want a solid wood top and not a Dreadnought. The only other Washie option seems to be the WSD5240STSK which is about the same size as the Lakeside box. Or I go vintage and get the WJ130EK.
