Received my Washburn Joe Trohman signature guitar in the mail the other day. It was a bit of a hassle getting it (off ebay) because when the guy (who turned out to be a really nice guy from a mom n pop type store) went to ship it, he noticed a flaw he found unacceptable and decided to not ship me that guitar, but another new one he would receive in a shipment he was expecting soon. So after about 4 days, it finally came, he shipped the new one, AND gave me a 20% discount off my already cheappp price of $220!

The thing is gorgeous!!! I chose the one in the sexy white, and as "simple" as the guitar looks, it's pretty banging. I love the simplicity of it, especially being that it's a signature model. Joe really designed a great guitar to give his fans.

It may just be the setup on my Epi LP (which i received from a trade and havent done anything to it "check-upish" except put new strings on), but the Washburn totally slaughters my les paul in playabaility and sound. The neck is thinner than the LP and gives great access on higher frets, the pickups are great to be stock, and the guitar gives a nice SG-esqe crunch..which I'm new to having never played an SG, but knowing what one sounds like. The VCC is alright...I tend to stay on "full-humbucker" sound most of the time instead of the single coil sound, but i notice almost a "tone-deterioration" when the VCC is somewhere in-between HB and SC. This DOES allow you to mix the two sounds, but I found I had to boost my volume a bit when set in-between one or the other.

Overall a greattttt guitar I'd recommend anyone to pickup given the cheap rpices these guitars are now (relatively unheard of, so I assume that's why such a price drop has occured)

PICS to come sooooon!!!!!!!!!!!!

you're not gonna want to take a dump in a gross, off-colored, vintage toilet. you want something that is white and pearly; something that shines. something that you can put your cheeks against and say, "f*** yeah"

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

1. Pics are mandatory... otherwise TTIWWP
2. If you reckon the owner did a good job, maybe it would be nice if you could share the name of the store with UG... might give him some extra business, which is the least you could do if you think the service was great.

my brothers got this washburn from the mid 90's and while the pups suck, the neck is really thin. almost TOO thin. i have this weird washburn tele that i dont know much about, and this wonderful washburn 7 string. they seem to make decent stuff but don't get a whole lotta recognition. hell, both guitars i have are kinda old, i wasn't even aware they were still making guitars!

pictures too
