Hollowbody & Jazz Series / ?? Info about the pickups in my J-7 ??
« on: January 13, 2012, 01:14:33 PM »
I recently got a J-7, and love it.  But being sort of a gear nerd, I'm curious about the pickups in it, and haven't been able to find any information about them other than the obvious, that they are humbuckers with gold covers.  They measure in the 8 ohm range.

Who makes them for Washburn?  What kind of magnets do they use?  Does Washburn use them in any other models?

Show Us Your Washburn / My Washburns.... the old and the new

Hi!  I'm new to the forum, but have owned Washburns for awhile.  Below is my model 217 parlor and my J-7. 

The 217 was made between 1905-1910.  It is spruce top, Brazilian back and sides, ebony fretboard and bridge, and ivory saddle, pins and tuners.  A lovely old lass she is!

I just picked up the J-7 a couple of weeks ago and am really enjoying it.  It is a very versitile guitar, yet has a character all its own.









I have a lot of guitars... about 30 in all, but my Washburns hold a special place among them.
