I came upon this on another forum and thought that I change my strings every 6-8 weeks still even when I rarely play certain guitars for a while and just tossed them out like everyone one else does ( well they actaully go into the recycle box ) and then this came up and thouight others must do what I do and this seems like a great way to help someone else out, so I thought I would share.

They will get my next 12 or so and I'll try to leave them just a tad longer and extra wind should be enough.Ship

I know they announced this a while back http://www.washburn.com/news-and-reviews/news/iq-system.html but I have yet to see when and which guitars they are going to use them in and when are they actaully going to hit the streets with them and what kind of cost will be associated in either increasing the price or lowering the price of the guitars, any body from Washburn know what is happening with these, lets hope its not one of those news announcments that go no where.Ship
Thanks Rocket

General Discussion / John Stover
« on: October 11, 2009, 09:27:21 PM »
Well USMusic now that there is a new line up of folks there what are the chances of having our John Stover guitars being built in the US of A again and having the custom shop really do custom work like the older D-82SW and D-84SW bought back to life once more and maybe allowing John to do more custom builds with our beloved Washburn name on them.
I know I crave to have some of the older guitars brought back, and I realize you may not want to bring back them all, but surely you need to have a true custom shop where we can order certain appoinments and I see no reason you can't limit those like certain types of binding or certain wood combinations or what ever.Ship..........lets get moving on bring Washburn to the fore front of Acoustic Guitars again

Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / Kudo's to Funkymunky
« on: October 04, 2009, 09:40:49 AM »
Recently I had the pleasure to read an article from Acoustic guitar mag. about a teacher in Nashville,Tn ( this one http://www.acousticguitar.com/article/Default.aspx?ArticleID=24736 ) and because of my involvement on another forum I was asked if I could provide some help to this school and teacher, especially when I found out these students were playing on guitar strings that were over 3 years old.
So I sent them a package of a dozens sets of strings which ran me over $100.00 Canadian by the time all said and done. And I felt that there must be a few more things that they could use, but the costs from shipping and buying here in Canada were just a tad to much.
So like any good consumer I started to look State side to see if I could find a on-line seller to let me purchase and ship to them directly, well low and behold most would not ship but to my pay-pal account ( go figure, its still a sale right ).
Then I remember Funkmunky that I bought my D-78Sw from and contacted Jon there and explained the situation to him as to what I was doing and guess what he came through with flying colors for me, and sent my little care package of 6 tuners,6 string winders and a dozen set of strings plus shipping for the almost same amount of $'s that it cost me to send a dozen set of strings from home to them.
So Jon a big huge thanks from the Ship of Fools who decided to give to those who need it sometimes more and I will try to be a big user and recommend your services where ever I can.Ship..... never hurts to give back what I got from music and playing it and who knows I day there might be the next Tommy E or Stevie Ray in that group of kids.

Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / New Vinci strings
« on: June 18, 2008, 07:46:12 PM »
Well I am curious as to how everybody is doing with the new strings. I know at first I thought they were actually pretty good and then about 20 hours into play time they seem to go quiet on me(the bass E and A strings in particular ) so I left them on and continued to play and they seem to have sparkled back up, still a little quieter for the bass strings but, they seem to have finally completley streched out and are holding tune.
I am not going to get the same set as what I asked for the first time (Vinci 807 Light String Set ), I think the Bluegrass strings might offer a tad more volume then the light set I recieved, the guage was slightly larger and I am hoping they offer the same volume as I origianlly had, so its been long enough now for all to have some opinion.louis

Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / J27CE
« on: June 10, 2008, 09:10:00 AM »
Just curious as to if any of you have ever played or tried out the J27CE, I am curious as to opinions as to the wood I have never played anything made from Java Ebony, and I am curious as to if it sounds as heavy ( thicker might be the better word ) as I would imagine the wood to be, I am thinking its time to try something different.louis

I would like to take this oppertunity to thank MarkD for his mentioning the Washburn Prewar Instrument Styles book written by Hubert Pleijsier, my copy came today and I have to tell you just what little I have read and skimmed through I found this book to be of great value and a great read.
So once again let me take the oppertunity to thank you again MarkD for all the valuable information you have shared with us and recommending the book for those who are interested in some of these older models, I know I will be reading for some time now and hopefully learn some new information.louis
