Re: Washburn WG587??? $199.99????
I have a WG587. I bought it there too for 199 about 8 months ago. The pickups were garbage, so I changed them. It eventually became my project guitar. I have now changed the pickups to an EVO in the bridge and an Air Norton in the Neck. I stripped the paint on the headstock and the body and tung oiled it(the alder looks very good actually). It came with 18:1 ratio Grover Tuners, so need to change there. I may eventually get a tone pros bridge, but for now its fine. I LOVE this guitar now. It sounds the BOMB, and with the paint gone, it is nice and light(as weird as that sounds). I set it up perfectly with nice low action and it just flies. The neck is not too big, but it's no wizard. the fretboard has a more cushion feel and feels more fit for my hands than a wizard though. The fret access is good too. all in all, a fantastic deal. Pretty much, it was a 300 dollar guitar after putting pickups in it, but even then it is the real deal. For 199, you can't go wrong.
