Re: Washburn N6 - comments please!
i have a paduak one (n4), it sounds really badass with the bill lawrence L500 in the bridge. you'd know if you had a paduak guitar though, they are heavier than hell. my paduak n4 weighs as much as my les paul studio ('91). but jono is right, if you watch ****, you can find custom n4s made of all sorts of wood types with different finishes (i've seen a tobacco sunburst which looked gorgeous).
another (albiet more expensive) route you could take is to have washburn custom make an n4 for you. i originally considered this because i do love the n4 a lot, but really didn't dig the floating bridge. i talked to this guy who was a dealer in chicago and they were willing to do a lot of different options (except for 24 frets). my dream n4 was going to have a gotoh hardtail, swamp ash body and my own custom choice of pickups. i was almost ready to push the go button on it...until i found out about ekg and realized i'd rather have an rg body with those features...for about $1000 less. lol.
