MGR/washburn praiser's review"Washburn Maverick Series"

Washburn BT8
I've owned and played my washburn maverick electric guitar for almost 4 years now and just love it!!! It has proven itself to be a solid, reliable, axe. I play with our church praise and worship band 4-5 times a week. we play contemporary christian praise and worship so the range is pretty demanding... the maverick handles it well... lite weight, easy to play and has surpising tone for being a low priced catagory guitar.. I highly recommend it>>

It is easy to play with full range neck

It has only 1 tone control and 1 volume control

hard body

see above

Washburn BT8
I see no notice given so I'm t tried to dcrire the best.

What country does she makes? (United States, Japan, Mexico, France ...)
United States Chicago.

What type of bridge (Floyd, Wilkinson ...)?
Tune-O-Matic tailpiece Stopbar.

What type of handle, body, table?
Bolt in Saddle with rosewood fingerboard, mahogany body and table Saddle flame.

How many frets, what kind of micro as well as their configuration?
22 frets, 2 humbuckers, a knob, volume and slecteur three position.

As far as the indoor connections this guitar is terrible because the microphones trs simple branch. They are taken both on the slecteur.


The handle is it enjoyable?
Yes the neck is really terrible, trs end, not too wide perfect for aficionados of the heater string Marcel!

Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
Personal love, trs original mm and not too long which could make it less practical or too cumbersome. As for weight it is reasonable and trs I'm not at all a bad back.

Access in acute (dernires freight) is it easy?
Yes as much as my SG.


So in terms of sound I do not just our answer to the questions because there is a point I put forward. The original pickups are really rotten a wish, I failed to sell there's six months and one day I wanted to change my micro SG (replaced by Duesenberg) and not knowing what 490R and 498T do I put it on the Washburn and l. .. c'tait the rvlation I started playing a little blues and I t transport by the sound of this guitar, even my SG seems to me dull the blow now. This Washburn is a mix between an LP and a Start. She heat of lp and the roundness and the slamming of the stratum. Sustain as good as my sg and a clean look to it even. APRS short if everything you did not understand that I love ...;- b. A rgale to play the blues until
hard rock to reggae and jazz. A real treat.


I've had 10 years to beginners I bought this guitar secondhand because I could not afford to put too much in a musical instrument. Pay 300 euros secondhand this guitar is by far one of my prfre that I have. If you have the opportunity to buy one, jump on it, please put the mics direct the trash and enjoy taking the microphone that suits you and the plug on this guitar.

With the exprience, you do again this choice?
Not because I t on by the original pickups, but I really missed something.
