Hello John Black,

Welcome to the Washburn forum..  I own a Idol WI64 too +OHSC..  I have an earlier post with pictures about it, I'm the 3rd owner of a Korean flat black with distressed hardware (original owner prefer the WI64v which came relic'd from the Washburn factory) .. The 2nd owner didn't like the relic'd look so he sold it at a good price.. At first I thought about repainting the sanded areas but the relic'd look matches well with the distressed hardware..  Adds vintage vibe. There were maybe 3 fresh that needed recrowning and polishing, but i opted for refret instead..  Jescar stainless steel frets.. bends are so smooth and frets are so so shiny..  ;)




Congratulations on getting one..  I really ad that it's Washburn answer to Gibson Les Paul / SG..  Honestly, I don't care which other product they are competing with..  Because I just like how it looks and plays.

Can you post pictures of your guitar?  Thanks

I recently missed out on a trans red one, and am hoping to pick up a black one, soon.  Not played any of these, just a wi45, and a wi66.  I think these look cool. More SG than LP..
