Re: Washburn N4 pickup dilemma
It has a grain similar to mahogany, however, one thing that caught my eye was a spot on the Stephens cutaway that looked blonde, like it was stained and someone missed a spot.
Anyways, besides looks, the guitar from top to bottom was a disappointment. Its felt cheap like an indo guitar. The "ebony" fretboard looked like rosewood. The guitar was never setup out of Boogie Street, and pinch harmonics were non existent. Pretty sad for $1700. I had it refretted with stainless wire which mildly improved playability, but the tone sucked. Im pretty good with wiring and pots etc, and I can assure you its not wiring. Any ways the guitar is in Ct and Im in Fl. I told him to try a Tone Zone.
Can someone educate me on the difference between the L500 and a Bill and Becky?
