Show Us Your Washburn / My updated collection. 3 usa's and a dime 333.
« on: February 11, 2012, 09:33:42 AM »
Been a while, and my collection has changed much recently.  I just added 2 USA ST500's in voodoo red and a flame top tobacco burst.  In addition to my ruby red Pilsen, customized Dimebolt, and RG587.  Now that I fixed my HTML...

Here are the fraternal twins, jack and Jill ST500's.  Jill is pretty and sings bright and high while Jack is more plain with a deeper tone.

This is the "Panteritar".  Air brushed by a good friend of mine and I added a FR Speedloader.

And my Pilsen.  Sounds sweet with the dimebucker!

Guitar Care, Repair, Modification & Lutherie / Buzz and rattle inside neck
« on: February 09, 2012, 08:59:58 PM »
Found it.  I knew the buzz had to be something simple...  The nuts on my e and b tuner were loose and rattling.  Sorry to bug you guys!

i recently picked up a custom shop guitar, SN 090194.  It looks like other ST500 in shape and layout, but with a flame maple top with a satin tobacco burst finish. 

the owner of the shop where I purchased it new has had it on the shelf so long he has forgotten all details!

Thank you for any help.


General Discussion / I'm disappinted...

...with Washburn.  I firmly believe they make the best guitars for your money.  My disappointment begins and ends with product support.  Has there been trouble for about the last year or something?  How long did it take to launch the Pilsen XL?  I know I gave up checking the link about three months after finding it.  But then the Paul Stanley line FLEW along.  Then you have Greg Tribbett being endorsed for roughly a year now playing a V... I have yet to see a V available to buy from washburn since the Anarchy series. It couldn't be too hard to make it happen.  BSG and Funky Munky are able to get guitars made through Washburn, why can't Washburn get what needs made done? I'm just disappointed, and maybe the artists leaving Washburn lately feel the same.  I can understand that some have no loyalty, but those who do need to have the company they play for back them and show some support.  I could be way off base, being outside the window looking in, but this is what I am seeing.

General Discussion on Washburn Electric Guitars / Pilsen Idol pickups
« on: January 12, 2008, 05:02:16 PM »
Has anyone else in here not liked the tones from the '59 and Custom Custom in the Pilsen Idol?  I feel the the '59 is too deep when distorted, and I can't find a tone I really like from the Custom Custom.  Has anyone replaced theirs?  I have seen many with EMG's, but I really don't want to go with active PUPs.  Any suggestions?

What would you guys recomend for an accoustic for $750 or less?  I played the d10's and 9's but want a bit more.  Let me know.  And by $750 I mean street price not MSRP.  Thanks!

General Discussion on Washburn Electric Guitars / New Pilsen XL

Man I love the look of the XL!  The transblue is gorgeous!  I can't wait for more specs....

Is this going to be a major hassle?  My PI70 as 42's, I'd like to put 46's on but I am reluctant because I don't have the special tuner for intonating a Buzz equipped axe.[:o)]

One more thing...The Red PI70's are beautiful.  I think Washburn should have a picture it instead of the Root Beer.[:D]

General Discussion / Washburn Guitar in "the Pick of Destiny"

For those who haven't seen the movie, a Washburn Dimebolt 333 is played by the Devil in the Rock Off Challenge scene of the Pick of Destiny

General Discussion on Washburn Electric Guitars / Why?
« on: December 06, 2006, 03:15:23 AM »
Is it me or does Washburn make some silly choices with their electric guitar line up.  For example,

Why do they have 4 different carves for the carve top idols?  Wouldn't it make more sense, and save money, to adopt one?  I don't know about you, but I think the carve on the NC70 is phenominal.  Then the flat top idols have three different cuts.  Where is the buffer between the $1700 PI 70 and the $3500 opus?  I didn't realize an ebony fretboard w/Block inlays and multi-ply binding added $1800 to the cost of a guitar.

Why is there only one USA X-series?  Where are the fret markers on the higher end x-series guitars?  They look naked to me.  Why is there only one model of X with a Floyd Rose, and why does it have a differnet carve top?

I love Washburn guitars.  I just don't understand the marketing department.  Why are Ibanez, Schecter, and ESP are getting all the new and old guitar gods?  I know by looking at the catalogs that those 3 brands make some great looking instruments, full of features like abalone binding, custom inlays, and Floyd Rose trems on metal guitars. Plus their web sites and ads are stunning, and guitar legends(new and old) are endorsing their stuff.

I know that this doesn't mean they make better guitars than washburn, but with the explosion of internet sales, eye candy will win between two guitars in the same price range.  Washburn does have two old school guitar legends and two true shredders endorsing their wares.  Hopefully Nick and Jon's bands start to get more recognition since both their bands have signed with a major label.  And Joe Don does country as well and anyone.  But why does Washburn choose to endorse these other medicore guitarists?  Sure the bands they are in may have had some success, but will many people remember the guitarists name 5 years from now?

General Discussion / What amp(s) do you use?
« on: March 14, 2006, 07:30:43 PM »
Just curious.  These are mine...

Kustom Quad 200 & Kustom 412 cab
Fender Super Reverb
Peavey Rage 158

Nothing beats my Fender's clean tone, but the Kustom is a good value with nice tone and loaded with celestions, and the Peavey is a good little practice amp.

Okay, those of you who have played or own a Face Eraser, Evil Twin Idol, or Scott Ian 75:  Which do you prefer?  I know that a few of you own all three, and would appreciate any info.  I currently am favoring the Ian because of the V neck, but since I will never be able to play any one of these before I buy I was hoping some of you may have some preferences.
