Need help about "Dark series limited edition"
« on: September 07, 2017, 03:57:43 AM »
Hi,

i've found a "supposed to be" washburn Dark 4 limited edition in a kind of pawn shop (so he's unable to tell me anything about it).

The only "info" i was able to find online is this link http://www.master-music.it/strumenti/washburn-dark.html.

Does anyone know about this "limited edition" series ? like year of production and "what kind of  series"  it is ? Super cheap ? entry level ? medioum quality ?
Woods and pickups info would be great !

Is kinda strage being unable to find on internet any news about this series....

I know is made in china and serial number is  12031158

Thanks in advance

Aimed primarily at wannabee shredders who're more concerned with looks than playability: "occult and gothic styled graphics in blacks, whites & grays, perfectly capturing the essence of dark metal music."

Basswood body -- reliable, boring. Rosewood fretboard, painted black. Maple neck, also boring. Fake EMG-look pickups.
Built 2012, FWIW. Nice heel relief, very nice body cut.

If it plays good AND sounds good, cool. Otherwise, it's more a fashion statement than a working instrument.
