Overview

Hollowbody guitars are typically lighter and more resonant than their solid body counter parts. This gives a somewhat mellower tone to the guitar making it well-suited to play jazz, blues or rock. The USM-HB35 features a double cutaway and includes a solid maple block in the center, increasing sustain and reducing susceptibility to feedback in high volume situations. Deluxe features include flame maple top, gold hardware, split block inlays and Grover 18:1 tuners. Includes case.

As the name suggests, the USM-HB35 comes with Duncan USM pickups, the result of a collaboration between U.S. Music Corp. and Seymour Duncan. The two companies have worked together for many years and have shared many artists along the way, including Nuno Bettencourt, Dimebag Darrell, Paul Stanley, George Lynch, Scott Ian, Warren Haynes, and many more.

Designed by Seymour Duncan's Santa Barbara-based engineers to USM's requirements, Duncan USM pickups are available in two voices, the HB-103 and HB-102. The HB-103 is a high-output humbucker aimed at heavy rock, metal, thrash and punk players. It's an extremely aggressive pickup with powerful coil windings ceramic magnets, but it will maintain string-to-string clarity even under the punishing picking assault heavy music players subject their guitars to gig after gig. The HB-102 is a classic, hot-rodded humbucker set that handles a wide range of styles from blues and classic rock to metal. The HB-102 bridge pickup has high-output coil windings and the neck pickup is backed off a bit. Both pickups use Alnico 5 magnets and are very musical with great high-end detail. The USM-HB35 gives you two volume controls, two tone controls and a 3-way pickup switch so you can get the sound you really want.

Comments about Washburn USM-HB35 Hollowbody Dual Humbucker Electric Guitar:

Special ordered this one in white. This has to be my favorite axe of all time. Very forgiving, and beautiful everything! Didn't need any adjustments, just a slight tuning and it was flawless. My pride and joy.

      Comments about Washburn USM-HB35 Hollowbody Dual Humbucker Electric Guitar:

      I have owned the USM-HB35 for several years now. It is one fine playing guitar. Great for any style of playing. I did some appearance customizing on it as shown in the photo. The strings I use are 9-46's as I mainly play blues. The USM-HB35 compares very well with the Gibson 335, but the Washburn has nicer looking multi-binding trim.

        Comments about Washburn USM-HB35 Hollowbody Dual Humbucker Electric Guitar:

        just got this in Natural & i couldn't be more happy. I was a little leery about a foreign made guitar , but remember , you've got the GC return policy in your back pocket , if you're skeptical. i did my homework on semi-hollow body guitars (Gibson , Epiphone , Fender , Guild , Gretsch , D'Angelico & more) & found this & the Epiphone Casino to be the best ones for the money.

        the intonation was perfectly set right out of the box ... it has quality Grover tuners & stays in tune real nice (very important) ... the pick-ups are also of high quality & you should be able to dial-in any tone you desire. considering that it plays real nice (action) , looks gorgeous with the gold hardware & comes with a hard-shell case , you'll be hard-pressed to find a better deal. i was very very surprised at the quality craftsmanship that went into an affordable guitar. if anyone is on-the-fence over this guitar , don't be ... trust me , you won't be disappointed.
