Can you guess whats inside?



Yup. Washburn WI66PRO.



Specs:
mahagony body & neck
carved bound maple top
rosewood fretboard
wing(?) inlays
grover tuners
seymour duncan custom custom and 59

Review:
feel:
the guitar feels amazing, the neck profile is exactly the way i like it, frets are perfect, neck joint is the best ive ever seen, no problem at all playing the highest frets.
quality:
theres the vcc(voice contour control) instead of tone knobs, i dont like them and the volume pots are crappy, ive already ordered new pots, switch and input so ill never have to worry about it.
everything else is perfect
sound:
didnt get an amp yet but at the store it sounded awesome.

and thats my brief review, now on to the pr0n:

Congratz! I'm considering one of these really soon. What neck profile does it have? I played one old discontinued version of these Idol series and felt it was quite thin in comparison to, let say, an Epiphone LP neck.

Nice guitar man! I bought a washburn myself a couple of days ago. Their instruments are about the best bang for the buck you'll get these days.

Have alot of fun with that!

You are what they call a “rhythm guitarist”. While it's not as glamorous as playing lead you can still get laid. Especially if you can sing and play.

very nice indeed I like washburns, the ones I've tried anyway, as LP_CL says, were great bang for the buck.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Hey also how are the pickups/ coilsplits working out for you?

ill be completely honest.
im a beginner so i dont know if a tone is good or bad....
you can look for reviews on harmony central
the vcc thing is nice but i want regular tone controls
if you want single coil and humbucker tones i think youre better off with push-pull coil splitting
for now im going to change to regular tone controls and maybe in the future ill get coil splitting
btw, thanks everybody

that's an extremely nice guitar for a beginner

I agree about the vcc- the ability to go to parallel wiring (i think that's what it's doing) is cool, but not at the expense of tone controls. I'm the same as you, I'd rather have it on a push-pull, or push-push, pot, and then you have tone controls too. But that's about the only thing I didn't like about the one I tried (well, actually the one I tried was the 65pro, and it didn't have fretboard inlays, so I didn't like that either, but yours does ).

i thought of using a master volume and 1 tone + 2 vcc or 2 tone + 1 vcc
im not sure yet....
#17
i like 2 separate volumes... extremely useful. you can set it up like a pseudo-two channel amp (if you have a single channel amp). Volume on the bridge pickup up full for brootz, then volume rolled back on the neck pickup for cleans... sweet.

if anything I'd go master tone and one VCC. But to be honest I'd just put it on a push-pull- if the VCC is just swapping between series and parallel wiring there's no reason, as far as i'm aware, that you can't put that on a push-pull switch. I know I have series/parallel on a push-push on one of my guitars. Even better, you can do it for each pickup separately (that's what I have), have two push-pulls for the two tone knobs.

Thats one sweet lookin guitar. What kind of pickups do you have (LIke Hot Rails, Cool rails etc)
#20
yeah. though i've heard some people say they're not as reliable as push-pulls. And when you press it, it can turn a little, which can be annoying. but they are much easier to select than push-pulls- the problem almost is that they're too easy to select!

if you pick up the guitar and you dont remember what mode it was the last time you played, how do you know if its splitted or not?
#22
oh it pops up, just like a push-pull. it's raised off the guitar's body when it's split (assuming that's the way round you wired it, I could be wrong but I'm guessing you could wire it either way round).
