ah- scion is that tiny delivery-truck that is very strange and square......made by toyota....?......could be the same martians that designed me sony digital camera......jim

18

General Discussion on Washburn Electric Guitars / String change

.....the only way to find out is to do it.....i would suggest though, that any truss rod adjustment be done with the strings loosened.....and to use a proper wrench.....ain't difficult if necessary.....to put a bit more bow in the neck for lighter strings, just turn the rod clockwise- a little at a time.....!....-you may want to experiment with different gauge treble strings......gbe.....to give yourself a custom set......just reset intonation, too.....you probably would want to raise the bridge saddles in any event.....it's your axe....lots of fun to experiment to get action to your liking.....cheerio, jim

nice axe, jeepee........!.......ebay should have a lot of switches......just ask about the attachment bolt spacing.......you may want to try spraying the switch with a good electric connection cleaner......just be careful of the guitar's finish.....for 125 bucks, it is indeed a fine instrument......no matter where it was made.....!......cheerio, jim

22
current auction......i have one in these colours.....super axe.....distinctive....!.....nice neck.....!....listed under electric- washburn

wow- with a wonderbar.....check the serial #.....a positive clue to the date.....my v is very similar, but with a kahler pro......the neck on yours is probably 24 3/4, eh.....i will check my serial # and get more info to you.....you may want to view the toronto v on ebay right now.....buy it now- $429....it was 459 last week.....kahler flyer.....nice axe, yours......!.......cheerio, jim

.........quick and easy nut fix- get some superglue gel.....mix it with a bit of baking soda or plastic dust.....fill up th e slot....wait a day....regroove the e slot with a serrated knife of sorts....[your local thrift store]....proceed carefully....when the slot depth is to your liking, then you've got it.....caution with superglue....!!!!!!!!.......it will bite into guitar finishes.....just a thought- what gauge e string are you using.....?........if the rest of the set is to your liking, then you could just substitute a thicker e string- and adjust the intonation for that string.....jim

....good you got both the neck and body together.....almost any floyd would fit......ebay always has lots for sale.....just measure the pivot post spacing and verify before bidding.....ibanez floyds have different string spacing, i think- so best to avoid those.....try dan erlewine's book or hideo kamimoto's book- both on guitar repair....[local library].....you should find a couple of diagrams that you could use.....pickups are are very personal choice.....good luck....cheerio, jim

#260219621212........electric guitars-washburn......toronto music store- just advised the cheap dealer to toss in a hardshell case for the 450 bucks.....!......i have a black one with red binding......nice axe, fine neck.......80's......this one looks cool- but caveat emptor- the cat only has 12 feedbacks- ask very specific questions re cracks, repairs, action, neck set, etc.....insurance and a free hs case should be mandatory......toothpick city otherwise.......jim

27
........not familiar with the models, but i assume that the hm20v is a set neck.....[?].....if the neck set is correct........[and the high action is a factory thing].....well, the tremolo could always be sunken into the body with a bit of a square rout..........nah, no other trem exists [that i know of] that you could substitute easily......if you wanted to just use a fixed bridge, a schaller is lower.....german-made......very cool.....i have a spare i would part with......$40....cheerio, jim

hi- i also got a wonderbar years ago- and saved it....[the answer model].....been checking ebay prices.......$100-125 is usual.......awhile ago, one went for 200 bucks.......you may want to keep it for a year or more.....then, ebay it.......jim

29
......just email the cat and mention that you may be interested in it if he'll consider offers.....as per ebay rules, natch.....jim

all 3 axes are just fine.....artistic......a too-conservative attitude about design ain't good......music make people happy......guitars make people happy......new designs are welcome.......fender with its 82 strato types and 60 t-caster types is not.......one should relax and be glad that washburn and ibanez have decent r&d cats.......i think that v type is neat.........looks well-made.....and with a floyd.....
