Tough choice but I'd probably opt for the washburn and spend real money (800+) on a fender later on in life.

Tough call to make, the guitars are pretty similar to eachother really.
However because of the gorgeous finish, the pickups and my slight bias i'd say the washburn. I belive they also come with ebony fretboards and not rosewood, mine did at least. Not sure if that makes me special or anything lol.
