General Discussion / How to Write a Controlling Idea Essay
« Last post by robbinrwhite on Today at 04:59:55 AM »
One of the initial phases of making a compelling essay is declaring a controlling thought. The controlling thought of the essay expresses your driving supposition, conviction or contention in regards to the essay subject. A solid controlling thought is sufficiently expansive to incorporate various examples and points of view, however sufficiently centered to keep the essay around a consistent and simple to take after track. Once you've found your controlling thought, you are set up to expand the thought into an insightful, balanced essay that gives proof to help your position. Set up a realistic coordinator to give a visual manual for your essay. One way to deal with a realistic coordinator is a crate web.

To the handful of people (as opposed to adbots & scammers ::)) who still read this site, my apologies for not keeping up with this thread. I'll eventually clear out the dead links.

A WI64M3, $200. An unusual variant, nice red "crackle" finish.

If you'd like to add a great Tele clone to your arsenal, the WI-36 is unique: basically a Gibson-scale Tele with a mahogany body. On this one, the butterscotch blonde finish is quite nice, as is the $150 tag.

A nice red hss Shadow Series WS-6 (with, naturally, Grover Rotomatics), a mere $70.

As I've often said, "the market" is populated with fools. There are all sorts of Mavericks littering the landscape, prices continue to slide, yet people will pay more for a beat-up Fender Affinity than for a sweet Maverick.

Don't see many of these, especially at this price: a BT-3 in cherry sunburst, $80 (+$60 s/h). Sometimes the "clown paint" CSB looks pretty good.

If you don't mind black, you can get a BT-3 for twenty bucks less.
BillyT[/b]. The pre-Mavericks often had generic diamond-can tuners & other corner-cuts. However, this BillyT (basically an early BT-2) had some unique attributes:
  • gold hardware
  • Grovers
  • mini-humbuckers (metal cans like the old Firebirds)
Well, save me from myself -- here's another, $130 + $55.]'m being responsible, paying down my credit cards. Naturally, highly desirable Washies appear at bargain prices. A month back, I pointed up an eBay listing for a two-HB [b]BillyT[/b]. The pre-Mavericks often had generic diamond-can tuners & other corner-cuts. However, this BillyT (basically an early BT-2) had some unique attributes:[list][li]gold hardware[/li][li]Grovers[/li][li]mini-humbuckers (metal cans like the old Firebirds)[/li][/list]Well, save me from myself -- here's another, $130 + $55.[url]

A few others catch my eye. While it's $281, that's not bad for Washburn's short-lived RS-10V, a PRS clone but with Rose bridge. Even the series prefix is begging for a lawsuit, but it gives you the Standard 24 config AND the discontinued classic short neck heel AND higher build quality (& significantly lower price) than the SEs AND a vibrato too.

Finally, the one I hate walking away from: D-46SCE. I am proud to own a D-46CESPK, but I've always wondered how much better the spruce-top version would be. Making it tough is the recent price drop to... $180. :o

IME, not quite so good as the subsequent Shadow Series models (which have Grovers), but still a higher-quality guitar. I think the Lyon Series was actually spun off as "Lyon by Washburn," intended to get the parent brand out into large retailers (particularly Canada). My guess is that these clones were short-lived because cheaper (& lower quality) clones swamped them. (The Shadows were soon dropped in favor of the unique Mavericks.)
