Your photos do not appear in your post.
Go to the General Discussion board and look for a thread authored by t.y. In the "stickies/pinned threads" at the top.
It explains how to get photos to display on the forum.
Your guitar sounds like a unique piece. Could the nickle inlay be some custom work for a Dimebag Darrel fan?

Sure would like to see those photos!

Show Us Your Washburn / Washburn WE333SC with nickel plate inlay
« Last post by TheGuitarKid on Today at 04:29:37 PM »
Hi,  I joined the forum to see if anyone could tell me about the washburn guitar I recently picked up at a pawn shop.  It is a wasburn WE333SC according to the cereal number on the truss rod cover.  I have found similar ones online,  but none with a nickel plate on the 12 fret with "DIME" cut out of it.  I was wondering if anyone has seen anything similar, and knows if it is something special or not.

Show Us Your Washburn / Re: what is this???
« Last post by carl300367 on Today at 02:50:48 AM »
that is a model A Falcon circa 78/79/ or very early 1980 the truss rod cover is from a later model . Under the stickers it might have the brass ring inlays but early models had perloid.
The back plate IMO is not origonal either it should be wood to match the back of the guitar .

Big givaway as to it being a model A is the jack input is on the front of the guitar it would also have had a brass not as origonal

X Series / Fretboard Radius
« Last post by bjgrifter on May 23, 2017, 09:14:50 PM »
I picked up an RX10 last year and while I love it, Washburn is skimpy on some details. Specifically, what Radius is on the X/RX line?

Bonus: Radius of a WG587.

Thanks.

Good luck with it all Dugly.

If you decide you want to try a few other options here are some good pieces of equipment that will work well.  I would not hesitate to buy this kind of stuff online.  It's pretty cookie cutter and any of these options will perform a lot better than what you have.

FWIW I own a street cube and use it for farmers markets gigs when electricity is not available.  It works really well.  Great sound, good effects and runs a long time on 6 aa batteries.  Also runs on standard 110 volt.

For a bit more you can get a bigger version, also battery power as an option.

and one more good option from Peavey.

Thanks, Keel! I like the option of battery power, there is a local water recreation site near my home that does not have any regular form of electricity, so a battery powered amp would allow me to perform in what is a quite nice natural ampitheater-like geological formation. I have often thought that might be fun! Lots of high school and college kids frequent the place, so there would be  ready audience on almost any weekend! A friend had a "Pig-nose" amp (does that sound right?) that was rechargable, but I have lost touch with the guy and in all honesty would prefer to buy new, anyway.

Cheers!

LOL!!!! I guess I never did know Rule #1...but I won't forget it now!

I did figure out that I need a heavier pick to get a decent tonal balance...my light gauge picks do not produce enough of a "treble" signal, for lack of a better term, when I play it in a manner similar to which I play my acoustic guitars; however, when I play one of my electric guitars (an ES335 copy by Epiphone, called a "Dot") focusing more pressure on the treble strings the tonal balance improves.

It is going to be a long avenue of discovery ahead, I can tell that...but I'll always remember to turn it up to 11!


Cheers, Dave!

Hi just wondered if anyone owns a Washburn D30s MIJ. This is the original version, solid spruce top, lam roared back and sides. Flat top headstock not v headstock. I've bought it, just wondering if anyone else has one and what you think?
