Title: My Washburn lyon series WE2
Post by: R-Fier on November 02, 2013, 07:22:09 AM
Hi guys! (sorry for crappy picture)

This is my Washburn lyon series WE2 (it's 1995 I think) with my Randall RG75 with 4x12 cabinet (unknown to me. It's my friends) It's little bit modded. I've chanced one humbucker pickguard and 16-19 frets are scalloped. Electronics: Bridge pickup (Humbucker from Ibanez RG270) --> killswitch --> output jack.

Thanks! And sometimes I use my Washburn WD-700 rack delay in Randalls effect loop. Anyone know how common these Washburns are? I've never seen exatly same model. This guitar has originally HSS-routing.

I think this model has been on stock only 1994-1995.

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.)
