So obviously this is the guitar I just won on eGay.
I was bidding on it from the Devin Townsend show, totally didn't expect to win because, as you can imagine, I totally wasn't paying attention to the auction So I just put one bid in and thought fuck it, if I miss it, it was for a good cause. However, nobody else bid.
The guy calls me during the show, leaves me a voicemail saying he just so happens to be coming to my area tomorrow, so if I want it now instead of getting it posted I can meet him somewhere.
Lo and behold...
It was CRYING out for a set up. Spent a good couple of hours on it. You wanna talk about hardcore neck shims? It took 4 business cards There are some buzzy frets but nothing I can't live with.
Overall this thing is actually a really fucking nice guitar for being 20 years old. I don't know what pickups are in it, but I know they're not the stock ones, that's for sure. Well... they're white, for a start, and they look very DiMarzio-esque. One thing's for sure they fucking rule. It absolutely screams man, like harmonic overtones everywhere. It's such a shred-guitar, which is what I wanted.
Very small Strat-like frets, the neck is a handful kinda like a tele, but it plays real smooth. Utter score, really happy.
non-recessed Washburn floyd knock-off will have to be replaced down the line though. Didn't even come with the trem arm!
Will take more pictures once it's cleaned and in daylight, plus I'll do a few sound examples.
ooooh. I like the shit out of that.
