Show Us Your Washburn / Pics of my guitars
« on: March 19, 2009, 04:25:19 PM »
These are my current guitars.  Though, I might be selling a couple of them to increase funds for I'm trying to purchase my second Idol.  I'm hoping to add more Washburns to my collection.[:D]

This is my WI66PROZ, my main guitar.

My Ibanez RG470

Yamaha Pacifica (Satin Alder body)

Cort Stering 1000.  Photo doesn't show it well, but it has a transparent red finish on a 2 piece mahogany body.

Cort Effector.  The strings have been removed in this pic, because I'm in the process of taking out the bridge.

Ephiphone Mark 3

My custom guitar project.  Still have to apply finish, drill more holes for pickup selector and tone pot, change pickups, and other little things here and there.  Just did a fast assembly to check on a few things before further steps.

Has anyone seen these?  The pickups act like an E-bow, but with filters and sustain control built into the guitar!  It produces some very unique sounds.  Here's some vids on it.

That would be cool if Washburn came out with something like that...though, sales on it would probably be really low due to the really high price that it would come with.

I hadn't noticed this until now, but the Seymour Duncan bridge pickup in my WI66PROZ is a trembucker.  Shouldn't it be a standard size for a stop tailpiece bridge?  Now the '59 in the neck is standard.  Is this the correct setup that it should be or not?

General Discussion / Custom guitar project
« on: November 19, 2008, 01:42:01 AM »
Hi everyone!  
I thought I would share my custom guitar project I'm working on.  It started off with an older guitar I had laying around collecting dust.  It's metallic red paint had suffered many shows with lots of chips along the edges.  Sounded like a great time to do something different with it.  My idea was to sand it down and put a Flamed Maple/Rosewood top on it.
The first pic below is the beginning of the tear down process.  Neck, tremolo, and pickups removed.

This is the alder body after it had been sanded down 1/4 for the top to be put on later.

Both Flamed Maple pieces and Bolivian Rosewood are now glued together to make the top.  

Headstock sanded down and a flamed maple veneer glued and trimmed.

This is after top is glued on, routed, and rough sanding. (Bridge and pickup only placed in guitar for checking router cuts.)

With neck placed on.  This is where I am with it currently.

Now, I need to final sand and apply finish before installing hardware.  I'm still debating on whether to use Seymour Duncans or Dimarzio pickups.  I'm also in the process of getting my volume and tone pots, plus other things for it here and there.  So that's my little project. [:)]

Hi everyone.  I've been really searching hard for information that will tell me what kind of wood top is on my WI66PRO.  I have even called Customer Services, but they just sent me basic information about the guitar that I already know.  So, I emailed them (along with pics and Serial #) and they didn't know.  The representative I had been talking with even had the Product Manager look at it and they were stumped as well.  I'm starting to think that this Idol might be rare.  I believe it to be a Ziricote exotic wood top, but not really sure.  By looking at different exotic woods, Ziricote looks the closest.  So, hopefully someday I can find information to confirm this!  Does anyone know where else I can look?

Hi, I have a WI66Pro and when I purchased this guitar the guy at the store told me that the top was a Macassar Ebony.  However, just recently I seen some exotic Ziricote wood and it looks more like my Idol's top than Macassar Ebony.  They both are very beautiful exotic woods, but now I'm confused as to which is on my guitar.  Can anyone help?  I've never seen another Idol with this top before.  Is it rare?  I greatly appreciate any information that could help!


Hello!  I am new to this site and to Washburn.  Before, having never played or even thought of owning a Washburn, that all changed when I saw a WI66Pro hanging on the wall at a guitar store.  It's unique wood top drew my attention and I loved the way it played!  The guy at the store said the top was an exotic Macassar Ebony.  They also had a Spalted Maple WI66Pro, but I liked the Macassar Ebony top much better.  I am very happy that I purchased this guitar.  I have searched all over the web looking for another WI66Pro with this top, but cannot find any.  Has anyone seen these exotic tops or know how many was on the limited run?

Below is a pic of my Idol.  I'm putting some other pics in the Post Your Idol Picture.
