i have two suggestions for you...

Dragonfire Phat Screamers (17.5k bridge 8.8k neck - ceramic humbucker pickups) theses sounds really nice

MightyMite Motherbuckers (22.k bridge 17.8k neck - alnico V humbucker pickups)

I suggest upgrading (2) for the pots to Linear B500k push-pull pots = coil tap the humbuckers...  and you get more options to your sound.

Ok, I guess you probably saw this one, but i figure you can follow the diagram...  forums.washburn.com/index.php/topic,18997.msg146717.html (http://forums.washburn.com/index.php/topic,18997.msg146717.html)

You asked about what humbuckers to upgrade to..  but I think since you will be making some upgrades...  I might as well try to give you more ideas how to hotrod your Washburn. from "I like it" to "I love it!" from "nice" to "Wow!"

Guitars that are company by the washburn is really having the sound of denote all musicians and then pavement of the sound will be create. With the robust of the guitars in which australian writing (https://www.australian-writings.org/) are not be withstand own by the look to be professional.
