Hi there

I would like to know your opinion/experience with this guitar... Washburn MG230
I wasn't planning to get another guitar but I came across it by chance.. played it for 5 minutes... I liked it although I am not a strat player (maybe that's why I liked it because I haven't played a real Fender strat before) ... I searched for it on internet.. seems to be a relatively rare guitar.. it is exactly like this one:

Made in Korea.. just made in 1996 (as per internet reviews).. few reviews on this guitar and all are positive

Any thoughts on this one? Any of you already owned it?

Thanks

The listing has already ended so you're probably too late to buy it now.

And well yes, I'll enjoy the carpal tunnel and tendonitis, because trying to get one is clearly smarter than any word you have spoken thus far.

If it feels good and the price is right I'd say go for it you could always upgrade the pickups if it is a good player.

rare does NOT always mean desirable.

if you like it, good. i have owned several Washburns. nice guitars. they are practically impossible to sell, they are not high demand.
