I've had the itch for a 7-string after messing around with a Demon 7 and JS22-7. However, given how cheap I was looking, it seemed kinda iffy for what you got. Over the course of reading, I ran across mentions of the Washburn WG-587 and I became more interested in it as it seemed to blow past pretty much everything else in the sub-$200 7 string category, especially in the used department I was checking out.

So, I found one for $79.99 online at Guitar Center. For that price, it's pretty hard to go wrong, so I bit. Got it in today, and the packaging was excellent--GC hasn't disappointed me so far.



Anyway, the neck is definitely more akin to Ibanez and with the 25.5" scale, the entire neck is easy for me to access. The headstock has Grover tuners on it, FTW!
The body has a few nicks, and some of the bridge's paint is worn. The rubber plug (or whatever it's called) on the pickup selector is missing, but is functional. The pickups are stock, and while not on the same level as the EMG H4's on my Damien, they're better than the stock on my Squire.

I haven't played with many 7-strings, however, if anyone is looking for a dirt-cheap seven and you see a 587, it would be worth it to check out.

I used to have this same guitar but in silver.
Pretty fun for the price man, The neck pickup actually sounds pretty good clean.
But you're crazy if you think that weird shaped neck is anywhere close to an Ibanez

This is my WG587 MiC S/N: SN 0C04031626





I have Washburn guitars 'Maverick Series' and bass 'Bantam Series' and a few pedals and amps, but man I wish to have more patience and drive practicing my playing, if it's equal to the modding itch, then I'm golden.

I had one of those a decade ago. It's not a bad guitar on a budget. I can also say that I wasn't a fan of the neck.

Ibanez is the closest I could think of as a comparison. I've also played with the RG8 a bit recently, so that might be why. Either way, the neck is great in the hands.

Congrats on the new acquisition!

If it plays well for $79 it sounds like you got a great deal, I had a seven string itch a few years back but didn't want to spend a fortune on one I had a friend who was needing cash and sold me a mint condition Schecter Damien Elite 7 with EMG 81/85 for $200 it has satisfied my 7 string needs, I'm a 6 string guy so this one works fine for what I needed.

HNGD rock on!
