Just wanted to let everyone know about this. I caved on the deal posted in the Great Deals thread: This is the link: http://www.worldmusicsupply.com/Washburn-WINSTDWH-Standard-Series-Electric-Guitar.html Very busy right now so I have not plugged it in and no pics but I spent a good half-hour or more playing unplugged and checking out the fit and finish. Pros: Maybe I got lucky but this guitar is one great value. Unpacked it and tuned it up. Playable right out of the box with nice neck feel and no buzzing. Frets are fine, no sharp ends and looks like I won't have to do any work on them. Nut is about perfect, especially the slot height. Very surprised at that. No need to work on it. Played up and down the neck and Intonation seems fine to my ear, nothing sounded out of tune, but I'll check that with a tuner later. I don't know if the strings are 9's or 10's but they feel like 9's and I use 10's so I'll probably put 10's on it at some point. The action is good but I might lower it. It would only need small adjustment (maybe 2/32 or so) and honestly you could leave it as it came and be happy playing. Cons: The paint on the neck has a small imperfection by the binding near the nut at the first fret where your thumb would rest. So small that I wouldn't attempt to fix it. Think hairline width and a pen point would cover it completely. It's really almost nothing. One tone knob needs to be pulled and reseated so the numbers are in the proper spot. Some cons huh? I've gotten many bargain axes over the years, ranging from "you get what you pay for" to "with a little work it's a fine guitar". Very few were this good out of the box. Gotta say this is one of the best "cheapos" I've ever latched on to. Perhaps it will turn out that I don't like the pickups (easy fix) or for some reason the axe just doesn't resonate when plugged in (doubtful since it responds nicely unplugged). Seems like an LP killer to me at that price.
