Weird Neck on this one - Washburn A-5

Anyone every played a Washburn A-5? They look a little like an explorer body shape. Guitarist in Quiet Riot used one back in the day. The guy who sold it to me said it's called a "speed neck" and it comes to a V and slides nice into your palm. I'm not sure I like the action on it, but it just feels so different than any other guitar I've ever played. I bought it anyway but I was wondering if anyone else had any info about it?

Isn't that the one thats got the headstock in a 90 degree angle?
Never tried one but I thought it looked cool in the 80s.

No, it was kind of a slightly smaller explorer with the last few inches of the points chopped off. *A pal had a yellow & black one. *I told him he was ready to join Stryper...

Sounds similar to the neck on the MMEB Luke Model. It's really fast and quite slim but with a pronounced V shape to it.

Yeah, the neck on the Luke is definitely V-shaped. *Good guitar, and the guy has good taste in bridge pickups *
