POSSIBILITIES...
« on: August 08, 2003, 06:18:00 PM »
can you help me out- im stuck in the middle of a decision of what guitar i should get. i'm on a VERY strict and low budget, but i have found guitars that i can afford and want. here they are:

1. a washburn X-10 for $120 with two single coils and a double humbucker pickup
2. a washburn WI24 entry level Idol for $200 with two 630 humbucker pickups

i already have a wahburn very similar to the X-10 with the same pickup setting, so i'm wondering if i should start playing a double humbucker guitar. i've played double humbucker guitars before- they sound better for dufferent things, and worse for others.
please keep in mind that i play punk and hardcore with a mix of metal.

make a suggestion please. THANX![:D]

I didnt even know they made an X10........

I wouldn't buy either, and instead save your pennies until you can buy a little higher end. Of course alot of punk guys play the low end guitars, so if thats what you want to do, then go for the WI24, 2 humbuckers rule, and you already have a S/S/H..........

Punk77,

Funny you should be looking for a WI24. Check this out.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2549457285&category=33048&rd=1

Yup, I am selling one and unfortunately for me it looks like it is going to be sold for much less than I had hoped. If it had the Feiten system it would be a keeper.

Have a great day!

yeah i would save up but the thing is, it's not really my money. a friend of mine who is really into guitar volunteered to buy me a new guitar, but he put a price of $250 or less on whatever i get, so those are the two best Washburns so far i found under that price.

and yeah, i was thinking about getting the double humbucker

if it was MY money (that i actually had) i would get a higher end X-series guitar

Link works fine for me. Consider a Washburn Tabu 100 it looks a little more Punk than the WI24 and has better fret access.

I was just thinkin'

For $250 on eBay you could get a WI64. I sold a brand new one 2 weeks ago for $250 total - shipping and all - and I was lucky to get that. I sold it because I bought one just like it for $177 (after I sold the gig bag it came with). One sold the other day for $225 + 30 shipping and it had a hardshell case. Yes, the is some minor risk but if you do your homework on the seller you canget a good guitarv cheap.

YEAH- THAT WAS IT! there was another guitar that i was going to metion, but i couldn't find where i kept my info on it- it was the washburn Tabu 100 for $180 from Woodwind and Brasswind. i went to the shop, its brand new, plays better than i expected, and the volume and pressesnce knobs are out of the way of my strokes and palm muting.

here it is http://www.wwbw.com/item/?itemno=94212

yeah, i'm going for the tabu. it also has humbuckers, so i'll have a double humbucker guitar, and then a S/S/H/.  besides, the more i've looked up and seen, a punk bands actually use more humbucker guitars. that kinda surprises me, because the single coils are great for choppy sounds from palm muting...

OK TABU, HERE I COME!!! BRING HOME DA CHEEZE FOR PAPA!!![:D]
