Idol Series / Just bought a Pilsen
« Last post by ffjoey on March 26, 2017, 03:29:40 PM »
I just bought a red Pilsen on Reverb. I have never really seen one for sale before. I got it for $495 shipped. It was described as excellent condition. Anybody know if that is a fair price? It appears to be an '06 model. I am hoping this will be a guitar that is worthy of being a keeper. I currently have an Ibanez SZ and Roadstar II. I love the way the SZ plays, not as much the RS but it was a gift 25 years ago from my parents so even though I don't play it I also cant part with it. My dad has a '76 Les Paul standard and I am hoping this Pilsen will keep up with it. I can find very little info on this guitar and any help is appreciated.

I wouldn't recommend that anyone buy from Japanese dealers right now.....most of the USA made Washburns being offered are well overpriced....sometimes double or triple of bluebook.  Better than 1/2 the claimed USA made Washburns being offered by Japanese sellers are fakes or throw togethers.  Know what you're buying before you buy it!

The only Japanese store that I would consider buying from (assuming they're still in business) would be Dolphin Guitars, Japan.  (I've done business with them before)

I have made a replacement chicklet style saddle.  In my case for a EA20.  The white pieces do sit in a black plastic carrier.  Then the whole assembly sits in the bridge, on a UST.  Having said all that I think you could make 6 individual pieces that sit directly into the bridge, on top of the UST, w/o the black plastic carrier.  As long as the contact points  (where the individual white pieces make contact with the strings) are in the right spot you should be fine.  It's tricky even with the carrier.  The angle of each piece is slightly different.  If the guitar has good intonation now, then it's a simple matter of replicating each piece.  You could also cut a single piece, more conventional saddle.  Again, you just need to make sure each contact point is in the right spot.

I made my pieces from bone and used a  dremel tool to cut each piece.  It was a bit tedious, but not technically hard.

One other thought, even if you have Colossi cut new pieces you will likely need to do a bit of hand sanding to get the action and intonation correct.
