Show Us Your Washburn / My Washburn WI64DL
« on: July 03, 2013, 02:08:37 PM »
I have upgraded the neck pickup to a Gibson 490r and the
bridge pickup to a Duncan 59. Both are single conductor
and I have installed standard SG type wiring,


Idol Series / Upgraded My Washburn WT64DL

My Washburn and a small amp cost me $150,

It is a wonderful playing guitar, but the electronics
are more shredder oriented,

I changed the wiring to SG type wiring. It looks
messy, but all wires are shielded except the ground

I also upgraded the pickups. I got these off CL
for $80.  The neck pickup is a Gibson 490R. That
is one of the most used humbuckers for Gibson
LP's and SG's. This is the one they call the 57
humbucker and it is the classic pickup for that
fat Gibson Humbucker sound.

The bridge is a Seymour Duncan Model SH-1 1959.
It is a reproduction of the 1959 Gibson Les Paul HB.
It is more bluesy and clear than the neck HB.

I haven't played it much sense the upgrade, but it
seems pretty awesome so far. Luckily, the middle
position of the selector switch produces a much
better than expected mix of these two pickups.


Pickups,,,,,,,,,,, $80

Pots and caps,, $23

Total cost so far is $233. I'm pretty happy with that.
That is about $80 less than a new set of Gibson HB's.

Thanks for lookin,

I got a WI-64DL yesterday.

I was wondering if this would be a 2004
model. Anybody know?

Hi Folks,

I've had a few Washburns and still have a few,
both basses and guitars...... Yesterday, I got a
super deal on a WI-64DL. I love this thing and
having so much fun, I can't take time to change
the old dead strings.

It came with an Esteban G-10 amp.

Bodie approved and christened it,

Thanks fer L@@kin,
