This stunning solidbody electric looks like it should be hanging on the wall of a millionaire collector. But, as the latest addition to Washburn’s best-selling Idol Series, it goes without saying that it’s within reach of the working musician.
There’s something about vintage guitars. True, they have bumps, bruises and chipped paint. But they’ve also got character – and that’s exactly the vibe that Washburn’s designers set out to nail when they started work on the WI64V models. Whether you choose the WI64V Blonde or the WI64V Black, you’ll get an authentic ‘worn’ finish that makes these models look like they’ve spent a decade on The Rolling Stones’ tourbus. You’ll also get the same classic twin cutaway styling that has defined the Washburn Idol Series since 1999.
Don’t imagine that the WI64V is all about the finish. Beneath the surface, you’ll find a due-paying rock guitar that combines premium tonewoods with rugged hardware, along with some of the most professional features ever to appear on a guitar at this price. From the VCC Voice Contour Control, through the exclusive Grover 18:1 gear ratio tuners, to the Buzz Feiten Tuning System, this baby is meant for thrashing on a stage, not hanging on a wall. Just check out those twin humbuckers…
