quantat's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A gem"

Washburn WI66 Pro
The mine comes from Indonesia: for other characteristics, are the same as those shown in prior reviews.


The neck is absolutely perfect: very fine, very fair, offering great access to the treble.

The sounds are impressive (micro Seymour Duncan) and very versatile.

The VDC system is not a gimmick: it lets you go from single coil to humbucker (I really do not understand those who have replaced that system with a simple tone knobs :-(). This system offers really interesting combinations .

The body is rather "small" (compared to my Duesenberg Carl Carlton) not heavy at all.


I play directly on sound (Yamaha Stage Pass 500) via a pedal (korg ax1000g).
I play pop, rock and reggae and I found all the sounds that interest me: the VDC system allows a lot of combinations.


I use it for 10 months, a little less now since I have a Duesenberg.

I still have to emphasize that WI66pro does not look shabby next to it.

This guitar is superb: the violin is very neat and I particularly like his "mouth" (I prefer to that of Lespaul) ... a gem.

Washburn wi66pro between a Gibson and 1000 euros, I have no hesitation (we'll probably accuse me of exaggerating if I say that some Gibson, even though more expensive, seem "sloppy". I compared with a Mexican Strat ... again I would not trade!

I bought mine here on Audiofanzine (500 euros) and I do not regret (even if it is "sold off" to 400 euros).

Yes I would do without this choice problem. Although if I had not already a quarter of the cash I would take WI67pro.

Washburn WI66 Pro
MODEL manufactured in corre
22 frets Seymour Duncan 59 for the neck and custom bridge for
2 volume and 2 tone control knob micro contour (VCC)
al freight handle some pretty high end
j I changed the pickups and knobs and even better then two burtsbucker N2 in gibson's pretty class, I have also a Les Paul studio but washburn is more powerful, the Gibson is more than rass wahsburn but the sound in the least Dfine mdiums.les compltent two is in the studio I used both. but this little Washburn supprte compares well try!


- Trs argrable
- Medium
- Lgre weight more than a les paul like him in form
- I think yes and no changing the pickups for Gibsons is 59 but the matter of taste because the microphones are good


Apart microphones that suits me perfectly in a group I play punk / rock french (dogs, black DSIR)
I play a Peavy any lights on his clear and distos
lens too but a good sustain and bold enough to correct the Peavy good but a bit messy that's why I'll change the pickups;
his clear honest


I recently started using it a good feeling good geule also I play on a casino piphone gibson pickups;
it is a good quality it is worth the price double in the marks of references but I'm not sure it worth the shot put as much.
of course it is limited compared to a gibson but the premium must be at least 3000 euros for not speaking of product marketing of these brands all age groups.
just read some review the problem no polish or round, and all is well
this one costs only 790 euros (without holster) ... then!
addition 28/06/2006
j prciser have forgotten that I play now with custom Les Paul and it's clear there is a diffrence as I said you really have the luxury to make the diffrence is not the same price! maintenet I sell my washburn to buy an amp! or announcement.

avermeer's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Washburn WI66 Pro
Mahogany body
Mahogany set neck
22 frets
Radius 14 "
Nut width: 43mm
Neck pickup: Seymour Duncan ® '59 reissue
Bridge pickup: Seymour Duncan ® Custom Custom
3-position selector
VCC control: A system for progressively split the pickups from double to single coil
Tune-o-matic with stop tailpiece
Grover 18:1
Buzz Feiten Tuning System: System tempered tuning


Excellent ergonomics.
Ideal weight.
Perfect balance between the neck and body.
I was attracted initially by its handle ultra-thin.
In hindsight, I now find the handle a bit too late (very thin sleeves promote cramps).


With VCC device, which allows a gradual transition from simple double-coil, and excellent Seymour Duncan pickups, this guitar offers a range of sounds unique and extremely versatile.
It takes a little time to get the most out of the device VCC.
At first, we tend to believe it's a gadget, which is far from true.


I use it for almost a year.
It has replaced all of its rivals:
I no longer use my Fender Telecaster occasionally, my Godin Radiator and even my superb Yamaha SG1000.
Beyond the sound, weight and ergonomics make a friend on stage and in rehearsal: We think of music, we think the public is not thinking about his lower back!
Of course, this choice I would do without hesitation.

vincent palmer's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Washburn WI66 Pro
Guitar factory in Korea.
22 frets (see Gibson LP) 2 Seymour Duncan 59 (excellents!).
Tune o matic.
possibility to split the humbuckers into single thanks to VCC Systm (mine has t skillfully customizes the former Owner 'classic with a switch and two push-pull)
al neck jumbo frets (advantage makes the game sound bootleneck possible even with a relatively low action).


The handle is trs trs enjoyable! Jumbo frets are personally for me as a j'apprcie particulirement Discoveries (harmonic pleasures, Thurs bootleneck ais and sounding !...). Access in acute is better than a LP. The guitar is not too heavy (body + beautiful mahogany table Saddle flam. It is a balance but tends lgre ct body drag when playing seated ( cf. LP).
The sound! Oh the sound! ... Personally, it's the very first time I played with seymour 59 ... Well, for those who have a sound ® religion LP STANDARD for less than 800 euros ... This is the guitar for you! In dual configuration: the micro bridge is hot and brilliant position intermdiaire is pleasurable for blues rock, and the bridge position is bright and acute and possde sound approaching the LP SLASH MODEL (Si!. ..). In simple configuration microphones are the microphones close to the stratosphere.


Trs versatile this guitar and his brilliant all appropriate style of music: funk to old school hard rock through blues, jazz and pop-rock. By searching against the mtalleux a heavy sound will, I believe, change the pickups. In all cases the sounds obtained by dual configuration and excellent sustain nothing envy a standard LP.


I use it for 2 weeks. I sduit. This is probably the best guitar I possde! I purchase for 350 euros and this price is the ratio qualitprix die for (even at the cost of nine approximately 800 euros, I think she suffers not yet possible to no competition in the range of guitars like Les Paul). Acqurir before I tried many guitars type LP in the range of 500-800 euros (ROXANNE STANDARD, IBANEZ ART 300, CUSTOM CS3 77 ...). In the final 66 washburn pro bury any competition and teases of trs trs prs Gibsonian her older sister who is almost three times CHRE! ...
