Ta, C! Hey, how about this? Some sharp Korean edges on the new one that will be dealt with, but I like this. Yes? No?

Nice pair. A couple of questions. How do the single coils sould? And what do you use for an anchor point on the reduced pickguard, at the bridge?

It's like an orchestra of telecasters in a huge hall if that makes any sense. The pups are sensitive and full. The anchor point is a little secret I picked up from Mr. D'aquisto. just a ring of felt in the right place....

I'm not really impressed with low end Gretschs, but the Ibanez AF series is really nice for a Chinese mfr. The fretboard is wider on the Ibanez which is good if you have large fingers, but these J9s are so different from each other, they cover almost all of the sounds I need. You could get an Oscar Schmidt and add the GFS Dream 90 pickups to it, and you'll have a super rockabilly OS or Gretsch without the price tag.

Hey, Fretless has dibs on my brand new AF86, but if you like it, I'll check with him and see if he's still interested and if not, I'll give you the family price. This Ibanez can do it all...

Sorry, John...Fretless does still want the AF86, but they're out there on eBay, so keep looking! And if you need an opinion, you know where to find me...

Good hunting!

The new pair...



One is pure country and one is pure jazz.
Both too new to name yet...

It will happen in its own time.

Hi all first post here and I need help!  About 6 years ago I purchased this wonderful Washburn J9 Washington.  I am very happy with the guitar and play it on a daily basis.  Here is my dilemma, I have not been able to locate one guitar with the particular finish of this guitar nor found anyone that knows anything about my guitar.  I had several E mail conversations with Washburn customer service and all I was advised was wow i have never seen one like that and I have no information on it for you Lots of help there....Hopefully someone can tell me why I cant find anything like it anywhere.

Thanks

Welcome!

I've seen only one other one, which was 51 of 100 from 1997.
