Well, I just traded whatever guitar it was I just got for a Washburn Parallaxe prototype.





Parallaxe inlay



Weird headstock logo



Stephens extended cutaway



The one thing that ruins the look of this guitar for me





So far I'm liking it pretty good, it's the first guitar I've gotten recently that I'm not thinking about trading yet. I'm thinking about changing the pickups out, most likely either a set of Black Winters or Distortions.

And here's my video I did for the one take challenge with it.

And according to the dude I got it from's conversation with Washburn this has the neck from the EC and the body from the EXLXTBM. There does seem to be a difference in the base wood of the body though. Production EXLXTBM's are shown to be Maple over Mahogany and the EC is Alder. This one appears to be Maple over Alder so it is a unique mix of the two models.

Shit that's sexy. I can see why you think that plastic bit ruins it however I think it really adds to it.

HNGD!

It's not plastic, it's part of the neck. It has a Stephen's extended cutaway on it to give you better access to the high frets. Nuno Bettencourt has it on his guitars, but it's not as noticable.



I just don't get why they couldn't at least make it the same shade as the rest of the guitar.

Yeah, shame that the cutaway is colored black, when the only parts in the guitar that are black are the pickups, the control cover plate and the nut...
Nice score though.

Hahah whoops. That's actually really cool, I'll have to look into this.

Nice guitar. And I'd actually like the black cutaway part if the headstock had matching black finish.

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.

I know, right? Or at least, "Please God, let him decide to trade me for something else!"
