General Discussion on Washburn Electric Guitars / questions about WI66PRO
« on: September 06, 2005, 10:21:15 AM »
oh, and ive never had a 66v so i cant truly compare them, but i have played a 64 and the 66pro blows it away.  I also like the 66pro's set bridge as opposed to the trem on the 66v.  To me, a trem doesnt fit a les paul style guitar very well

I agree with the chicago kid on everything.  I have the trans black finish and it is a sweet, sweet guitar.  I covers all genres.  Compared to the USA models i think a 4 out of 5 is suiting.  But consider that the thing is made in korea at 1/3 the price of a USA custom and i could easily justify a 5 of 5.  if you like the way it looks, get it, you wont be dissapointed in the sound.  The custom custom in the bridge definitely has a good crunch

yeah, ive never heard of a 68 with a trem.  Im not trying to question whether its a 68 or not, but it may be a 66v which is still a killer looking guitar............

my guitar is the top import model and it says that it has the system.  the only thing different that i can see is that the nut is wider that normal and tilted back at the same angle as the headstock.  i can see where this may help in the area of truer, more stable tuning and proper pitch. but at the same time, i dont see where buzzy gets off charging 130 for a system like this.  I mean, how much does a nut cost?  not 130

I was hoping that someone could help me here.  I have a wi66pro guitar that supposedly has the Buzz Feiten tuning system on it.  Problem is, i cant tell the effin difference between the nut or bridge on my guitar and that of any other les paul copy.  The nut has no lightning bolt on it(signifies authentic feiten system) and the bridge looks just like a gibson bridge.  I know its made in korea so granted it wont be as nice as some american made washburn, but it seems that the sticker on the back of the head stock that say buzz feiten is just for show.  anybody know anything?

Im interested in getting a nice shred guitar but i dont want to spend a ton of money......any suggestions.  Id like to spend less than 500, and i would also like a floyd rose.  

By the way, it doesnt need to be a washburn.  im open to anything.

To expand on my previous post. Today, I played the washburn again and it seems that every time I pick it up i love it more and more.  I am confident that this is as good of a guitar as any SG special, and some standards.  I realized that the guitar i picked up at Guitar Center was an SG standard.  It had block inlays, which most specials dont have.  It was an incredible piece of gear, but i was playing through a very nice fender amp.  Here at home i have an old 80s solid state crate and the Korean made washburn is equally impressive.  I would recommend this guitar to anyone, anyone...

Well, to be perfectly honest, i dont know.
I played a new SG Special at guitar center the other day that felt awesome.  It was probably about the same quality as the wi66pro but at 900 dollars compared to my $535(with case and shipping).  I would say that if you got a New SG Standard, then yes, it probably will be a better guitar.  Hopefully some others can add input to this too

I resently paid my taxes and took care of a few other responsibilites and i have about 500-700 dollars laying around.  Im interested in buying another guitar, maybe a washburn maybe not.  I would like to get some first hand opinions on what a good deal for a guitar in the 500-700 dollar range is.  I really love playing rock/hard rock so i plan on getting dual humbuckers.  any opinions?

What are the general thoughts on the WI66 Pro.  Is it worth the 650 bucks that most music stores are asking?  It looks sweet and the Seymour Duncans look awfully tempting......but it doesnt seem like a lot of people are too interested in them.....It seems like the WI64 gets more attention

Im interested to know more about the washburn tabu series.....Does anyone know anything about this line of washburn guitars?  when were they made, for how long?  I also would like to know more about Washburn Head-Hunter Pickups....
any help please?
