I figured I would get the most responses out of the pit.

Has anyone ever played any type of Washburn? How did it sound/feel/play?

Are they generally good guitars?

My biggest question, how come on the Washburn site, there will be 1 guitar selling for 2,000+ then another for like 300 dollars? Doesn't seem like they separate their guitars.

You'll get more responses out of the Pit, to be sure, but half of them will be nonsense. Go to the right forum, dude.

I played one of those anarchy series ones, it was ok.

They make great cheap guitars. I own one of their 7 strings, and even for a crappy guitar, it's a pretty good guitar.. If you know what I mean.

So the high ends will probably be good then.


I'll go post in the electric guitar forum then :P

They do, Nick Catanese plays one, and whathisname from Disturbed has one too. They look like what would happen if a Gibson and a PRS had a baby.

I've had a Washburn BT-6 for about 10 years now, and it is my main metal axe. It has never given me any problems and once the Floyd Rose was setup correctly it never goes out of tune. The action is pretty low, with only a slight buzz on the low E string for about the first 4 frets. The only thing that's not original on the guitar are the pickups. I have a Seymour Duncan SH-4 in the neck position and a SH-12 Screamin Demon in the bridge (disconnected the middle single coil).

Washburn makes low end and high end guitars and yep there is a big gap between them but price shouldn't really be a factor, what is more important when trying out a guitar is how close to perfect it is right out of the box and does it feel and sound good to you. Electronics, strings, pickups can all be changed later. I have a Fender Squire (Mexican Strat) that cost me about $150 15 years ago. It had great feel, great action and the stock tremolo bridge had already been set up to float. I swapped out the electronics with a EMG-DG20 David Gilmour Pre-Wired Pickguard and Pickup set and it is #1 blues guitar and plays and sounds better than Fenders that sell for $1500+ IMHO.

I played one between £500-600 and it was absolutely amazing, although i don't know the model make. I actually saw the guitarist of Fall Out Boy using it last year, which i imagine isn't a huge redeeming factor in the Pit.

Seeing how the one I posted in electric guitar died, I shall resume here.


I have another question.

I was looking at the Washburn X50 Pro, looks nice, I've read some reviews people love it. But one thing I don't get. If its such a good guitar why is it so cheap? The list price on the Washburn site says $1,149.90 why does it go for $699.00 on musicians friend and thats the general price from all reviews i've read.

Possibly because the model is either made in China or Indonesia. The guitars are hand built but the area they are made in may make vendors think that they will not get the list prices. What is important to anything manufactured overseas is how stringent the initial company (Washburn in the case) is in their qulaity control. If they have a high level of involvement and quality control then you can get really nice guitars made from almost any country, and that savings is passed on to us...

I played a washburn dime once, the stealth model.

and loved it.

I really want to get one, and have seen a discontinued one on ebay.

But the new snake skin dean stealth looks pretty funky.

Yes, I have the X50Pro with SD pups. It's amazing, and with a cube 30 = sex.


I also know someone who has a washburn acoustic, it is amazing, and not that expensive.
Overall, great guitars.

My first guitar was a washburn and for a starter guitar it was absolutely marvelous. Way better than any squire or other newb guitar for the same price.

They also make some higher end guitars that play and feel very nice, although I do not own way I have played them and can say they are very good quality guitars, just not my style.

Forgot to mention my Acoustic is also a Washburn, and it has excellent tone
