The Joe Trohman Washburn Idol WI26 is a modern single-cutaway style electric guitar. Tones ranging from punishing to pristine spring from dual humbucker pickups and the innovative Voice Contour Control. VCC is a unique coil-splitting system that allows you to incrementally blend humbucking and single-coil pickup sounds without the hum normally associated with single-coils. The solid mahogany body has a wide-yet-thin profile that is lightweight and well-balanced. The set maple neck has a fast profile, comfortable neck joint, rosewood fretboard, 22 medium-jumbo frets, and Grover tuners to keep you in tune.
"I spent a long time putting this guitar together, making it something that really represented me as a guitar player. This is the result and I'm so pleased with it. The fact that Washburn presented this opportunity in the first place means the world to me, and now I got to work with great people to create something I truly love. I'm a guitar player, and I'm obsessed with every inch, every nook, every aspect of guitars in general. I put my stamp whole heartedly on this guitar, knowing that it fully kicks ass and surpasses my standards. I'm excited to make it available to everyone out there. Enjoy it, it will bring you riffs galore."
Joe Trohman/Fall Out Boy Bio
The four members of Chicago's Fall Out Boy came together in suburban Wilmette around 2001. Vocalist/guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist/lyricist Pete Wentz, drummer Andrew Hurley, and guitarist Joe Trohman had all been in and out of various units connected to Chicago's underground hardcore scene. As Fall Out Boy, the quartet used the unbridled intensity of hardcore as a foundation for melody-drenched pop-punk with a heavy debt to the emo scene.
Their debut album,, appeared in May 2003, as Fall Out Boy garnered positive reviews for their gigs at South by Southwest and numerous tour appearances. Their breakout album, the ambitious From Under the Cork Tree>/em>, followed in spring 2005, quickly reaching the Top Ten of Billboard's album chart and spawning two Top Ten hits with "Sugar We're Going Down" and the furiously upbeat "Dance, Dance." The album went double platinum, and earned the guys a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist.
Fall Out Boy' toured extensively behind the album, both at home and abroad, including spring 2006 arena dates, in addition to appearing on TRL, late-night television, and music award shows. Without taking a break, the guys eventually hunkered down to work on their follow-up record, February 2007's Infinity on High. The title was taken from a line in one of Van Gogh's personal letters with the album spearheaded by the hit single "This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race." The album continued Fall Out Boy's streak, debuting at number one on the Billboard charts and going platinum about a month later. Released one year later, the CD/DVD package Live in Phoenix documented the band's strength as a flashy live act.
