Washburn WI64BD
Made in Korea.

Mahogany body and head. Rosewood fingerboard with round markers. The body and head are dark gray / matte black.
All metal parts are made of copper matte with reddish reflections.

22 frets, graphite nut black 42.5 mm, two microphones WB630 high output double-coil and copper plate. 3-position selector. Easel style Les Paul.

One volume knob and tone for each pickup, the tone can change from one mode humbucker to single coil mode with a noise filtering (Voice Contour Control).

The mechanical, Exclusive Grover with a reduction ratio of 18:1, are also copper.

Buzz Feiten Tuning system as all the guitars in the range of Washburn WI

View of the electronics (this shield on the plastic, but nothing appears there in the body - nr. Despite that, no buzz to report, no obvious interference):

UTILIZATION

The handle is very nice, the hand moves with ease and did not catch the back of the neck. It is relatively thin and does not tire, radius fitted well in my hand. Access to the last fret is not a problem because the body cut in "SG" side of the chanterelle. The other side is also easily accessible. The guitar is very light and the whole is convincing in terms of ergonomics. No fault found on the side of the frets are well polished, just 2-3 little things that seem to violin a little less well done at the touch but really nothing too bad considering the price.

The knobs are solid and precise and the switch is located far enough rope to prevent slippage.

SOUNDS

I use it to sound aggressive, it's going from grunge to metal and this guitar does very well. The guitar does very well with blues sounds more 50's if you work a little on the knobs.

The humbuckers provide a thick well for the distortion and the VCC provides a more crystalline by switching to single coil, although it is not as crystalline as my Strato base. The Buzz Feiting System provides its just for agreements ( http://www.buzzfeiten.com/ ).

I am very happy together with my little VOX DA-5 (via a very good amp 5W). Should be tested on another amp to see what happens.

OVERALL OPINION

It's been about a year I play and move from a poor quality copy of this Stratocaster guitar is a true wonder. For now, I have no complaints with the sound, the guitar is quite what I do and if you are a beginner like me who wants to move up a gear in very thick rock I can only recommend it.

Aesthetically, the guitar is very beautiful with copper highlights the most beautiful effect, there is a side a bit vintage and modern at the same time. Cons: The brass parts are difficult to maintain (a tendency to oxidize and have parts duller than others) and are certainly less easy to clean than chrome, but hey, it's part of the look.

I was aiming to start a Les Paul or SG but I was drawn to this modern mix between the bodies of the two. In addition I was pleasantly surprised by its weight. The price / quality ratio seems very correct, it is a little more expensive than other WI 64, the bag was however provided.
