MGR/Cheese Shredder's review"Washburn X20"

Washburn X20
Musician's Freind.com

There isn't too much to dislike about the guitar. The finish is as good as guitars costing 5 times as much, and the machine heads are worth half the price of the guitar.

The pick-ups and tone control are pretty cheasy, but again, for the money, there's nothing much to bitch about.

The fit and finish are excellent overall, however the lamination on the headstock looks like it may not survive a rainstorm. So, don't play in the rain.

If you're looking for a nice playable guitar that you won't be afraid to have stolen, or bang around, this one is tough to beat. I don't even keep it in a case, and I throw it in the back of my truck (camper shell) whenever I'm on the road, using my Marshall MGC10 and Behringer V-Amp2 to wake up the hotel guests. The tuners are above average for this price range, the neck is sweet, and it takes a beating with the best of them.

MGR/R. Langford's review"Washburn X20"

Washburn X20
I found this Guitar on Ebay and I won the guitar with my bid of $96 and $26 to ship it.

The neck is decent quality Maple and the fingerboard is good quality Rosewood. The frets are nicely installed with no buzzing anywhere along the 24 frets on any string.
The body is comfortable and the Pickups are clear and hot. The surprise is that the single coil pickups are as loud as the humbucker so it is the same volume as you select the different pickup combinations. The tone control works well from bright to a dark jazz sound. The finish is well applied and polished nicely. It is easy to play and it sounds really good clean and distorted. For a Guitar you can get under $200 it is the best I found. I plugged a Mexican Fender Strat into the same amp I use and the Washburn sounded way better and played better, more comfortable

The metal posts that support the flushtrem bridge are really poorly plated. I attempted to lower them for a lower action and the Chrome Chipped off instantly. Open the Control knob access panel and you see some really cheap Pots. The truss rod adjustment nut is really cheap and poor quality, It is nearly impossible to adjust the neck and not scrape the edge of the fingerboard above it as well as nick up the finish on both sides of the access hole behind the neck pickup. The control cavity is not shielded so it can be noisy in certain positions as it picks up interference in the room from amps and electrical wiring.

It seems to be well constructed, other than the truss rod nut and the poor quality tremolo mounting studs. They say the body is maple but what kind? I pressed my thumbnail into the wood in the control cavity and the wood is softer than any maple I know of, but still better in my opinion than basswood.

Buy this guitar instead of any other strat style and use it til you can get guitar that costs over $600 so you can have better quality parts and truss rod. When I play it I hear how great the sound is and how cool it looks.

Washburn X20
It is made in Korea or China's last Asian
it has a double 24frets microphone market washburn and 2 single microphone.
it's a simple little vibrato bridge which nothing special.
a volume knob and one tone knob switch 5positions for more Polivalente.
type of handle I would say it is very pleasant and raproche epiphone studio and a bc rich

UTILIZATION

For a guitar trainer for sale entry-level so the handle is more than the pleasant slides alone.
access to the acute is superb talonette the handle does not interfere at all to tickle the 24th frets it is a wonder to the next.
the guitar is very well balanced no worries of weight very very slight so basically the interface is Remarc whatsoever to play standing or sitting.
the sound comes out very easily but can be a lack of Légé sustain.

SOUNDS

Yes she is perfect myself playing more metal and hard rock it out without worry-free and with my digitech grunge pedal is a little merveille.En clean sound is very good on the other hand when you switch to move to the humbucker sound is clear Puncher that provides a clear one pe grunge bavouille What's a can is the only concern.
I play my Ibanez 15W ADJUSTMENT not drive out all the sounds in my head alone and combined with a 150W line6 my harley benton cabinet 412V what the sound is great given all the possible settings you can customize the sound as you want it a treat.
I like the lil rock metal side has what we believe what is not like his style but to cut it makes the sound clear merveilles.sinon apartheid suits me the little worries of punch at the humbucker.

OVERALL OPINION

Its been a year and a half that I use.
its weight is the sound that I love her jadore least it can be an input jack that motto from time to time.
The Gibson Flying V Zakk Wylde is my uncle and a jackson kelly usa.
The report price is EXCELLENT Calita what it nine for 230 € more than your time.
7années with my (and yes I started small) experience I will remake choice
