Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? With this model, I had nothing but trouble. The first one I received the strings were laying so close the the frets on the neck, I couldn't play it. I took it to a Luthier for adjustment and he said the neck had a bad twist in it. Okay, so I send it back in exchange for another thinking it may have just been a fluke.When next one came I took it out of it's beautiful case, and looked at it. OMG I said. The strings were so high and hard I really had to push my fingers down to clear the notes, plus the mother of pearl up the fretboard were cracked. One of them actually fell out of the diamond shape slot. I just about cried. I called Washburn to find out what the heck was going on why they couldn't seem to get me a decent guitar sent out. Customer service was nice, and refunded my money. I'm starting to think this guitar is made as a show piece. Something you might want to hang on your wall as a conversational piece!!!! General Your general opinion of this product. Cheap, cheater, the cheapest! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Twingy, twangy, and I couldn't hear the difference between the mid range, and high range, it's just one big range of "DEEP" sound. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? It did look very Antique, which drew me to it in the first place.
Great for the price!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Good quality. General Your general opinion of this product. Great little guitar for the price. The v-neck is a bit hard to get used to but after that it's fun to play. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Well balanced but more on the bright side. Not a lot of low end bass as expected. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Fine. Be warned it's an "antiqued" finish.
