Washburn Electric Guitars
Not many companies can say they've been designing and manufacturing guitars for over a century but here's one of them. Established in 1883, Washburn Guitars is a name recognized globally for their quality, innovation and commitment to producing top-quality instruments. They are endorsed by some of music's most influential artists including Warren Hayes of the Allman Brothers and Extreme's Nuno Bettencourt. With this impressive line-up of Washburn electric guitars, you're sure to find a model to call your own.
Speaking of impressive, nothing tops the PS2012 Paul Stanley Signature Starfire. A culmination of the long-standing relationship between KISS front man Paul Stanley and the Washburn USA custom shop, this incredible axe boasts a carved mahogany body with a raised center, a mahogany neck and custom- designed solid aluminum tailpiece. It's these unique features coupled with its sleek, one-of-a-kind style that give this beauty the tone, sustain and looks it needs to hold its own on stage with one of rock and roll's biggest superstars.
Another popular Washburn model is the Original Idol Electric Guitar. This affordable six-string bucks the trend of typical electric guitar design with its distinct rounded shape and eye-catching spalted maple veneer top. The belly cut on the back provides comfort during marathon jam sessions. With its bold single cutaway style and dual humbucker set-up, this Original Idol is built to be shown off, making it a must-have for artists who are searching for a guitar that looks as good as it sounds.
One of Washburn's greatest strengths is that they make guitars for players of all skill levels. From garage-band greats to internationally-renowned guitarists, there is a Washburn for everyone. Since first introducing the Lakeside Jumbo in 1912, Washburn has continued to build on their foundation of high-quality craftsmanship and it definitely shows in every instrument they turn out.
