.....blimey- would suggest that you just play it and take care of it.......having a guitar that you have distressed [antique furniture term] might lead to disrespect of the axe.....carelessness.....dropping it...., etc.....and then- real damage.....if you treat it as a precision musical instrument, it will serve you best......do not care one whit what other guitarists think of the axe......ideas like 'hey, it don't look like stevie ray vaughn's guitar'.....i once bought new a 1960 fender jazzmaster in see-through blonde......sold it years later to a kid who was seen dragging it on the street without a case......i did not appreciate that.......anyway, the n2 looks very cool as it is......!!!!!!!!!!!!

General Discussion on Washburn Electric Guitars / Wondering IF/HOW?!
« on: November 27, 2007, 12:05:03 PM »
.....a safe way-plug into the randall..... run a guitar cord jumper from the unused input of the randall into the input of the kustom.....turn 'em both on.....avoid going from speaker output on the randall into the kustom....!!!!!!!!!!you would be putting 20 plus ac volts into the poor kustom......   a friend smoked a peavey pa amp by patching it into a roland amp's line out........when in doubt, just experiment with front panel input patches only....no harm....

i agree with djmonette, chaos rex and shaolin.....i avoid chinese instruments or parts.....have found that indonesian and korean axes were fine.....some marshall and vox amps are made in vietnam.....anyone buy one recently.....?......the epiphone les pauls all now seem to be chinese..... i think the made in china stickers can be removed.....[on purpose, eh?]......

......blimey- why complain...?????....hannah is a cute kid......i hope they issue a hilary duff axe, too....!.....yeah, it's good to encourage kids to play.....daisy rock girl axes, for example.....as well as miley's axe......her pop is billy ray cyrus.....one decent dude.......as fats domino said- music make people happy.....guitars make people happy.....

General Discussion on Washburn Electric Guitars / WonderBar

zac- i do prefer the kahler flat-mount types......have a washburn v [modified by someone with one- a kahler pro].....2 bc rich warlocks with kahler flyers.....and a very modified bich with a good kahler pro copy.....the wonderbar is neat since it does not require routing.....i have one, but never used it on anything.....above all, your playing style is most important.....i like to damp strings with me right hand......the kahlers are fine for that........the wonderbar has a few more rollers on it......i didn't think it would suit me.....original floyds and copies have the fine tuners up high......i think the floyd pro is a low-profile unit.....as are a few ibanez bridges i would suggest going to lots of guitar stores.....and looking at new and used axes ......hope this helps.....cheerio, jim

....check completed sales on ebay......especially the biiding involved.....good luck......i sold a nuno about 5 years ago......i don't recall details or price......but i was pleased with the auction results......

39
......sure, with ebay going strong, any metal axes will continue to increase in value.....occasionally, just check completed sales on your axe......!.....any unusual or custom color metal axes [even re-sprays] are getting lots of attention.....a lot of fun, these guitars......

40
ibz are good bridges....well-designed....a couple of low-profile types, too.....these sre probably made in korea......i have a bc rich with a kahler pivot bridge.....[strange adjustments with a hex key from the back of the guitar......best to judge for yourself as to whether a bridge is cool for your playing style......many floyd types always for sale on ebay.....

.....just a bit more on contemporary gibson quality.......check each axe individually.......the are fine examples......but, sadly, too many gibsons leave the factory with finish blemishes....especially near the fretboard......also fret edges on many are not properly filed......for $2000 plus, as a consumer, you should expect excellence......

......best of luck in your search.....i would guarantee that current washburn quality is top-notch.....just make sure you like the neck profile.....[current gibson quality control is not what it was in the sixties......and prices are sky-high....although there are a few good new gibsons at dealers, for their current prices the whole lot should be perfect.....]

General Discussion / how to ship a guitar?
« on: March 27, 2007, 10:59:41 AM »
......hi-    extreme caution.....!.....if electric bolt-on- just remove the neck......otherwise, try a pawn shop for a cheap hardshell case.....ups is by far the worst shipper......us mail is far more kind to packages.......i have heard many stories of broken axes......jim......
