It helps the guitar's intonation.

It's not actually a Washburn invention for a start; it was invented by a guy called Buzz Feiten oddly enough.

Either way, the guitar is technically built wrong; the strings never intonate perfectly for various reasons so the idea is that the Buzz Feiten system adhusts the intonation at the nut slightly to remedy the problem. There are a couple of other systems that do the same kind of thing like the earvana compensated nut and the frets that aren't straight on Steve Vai's guitars.
