Washburn Guitars Presents the HB45WH Hollowbody Guitar

Washburn Guitars Presents the HB45WH Hollowbody Guitar -

PRESS RELEASE: Long a staple in Jazz, Blues, and Rock circles, and loved for its fat, meaty tones, the hollowbody has been ubiquitous in 20th and 21st century music. Washburn has contributed to much of that music and is proud to introduce the HB45WH double cutaway hollowbody guitar which is based on our best-selling HB35 model.

The HB45WH features a double cutaway maple body and includes a solid maple block in the center, increasing sustain and reducing susceptibility to feedback in high volume situations. Additionally, we’ve removed the F holes traditionally found on guitars of this style to further reduce susceptibility to feedback and contributing to an overall cleaner look. It features a maple neck capped with a 22 fret rosewood fingerboard with split block inlays. The gold hardware includes a tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece with Grover® 18:1 Rotomatic tuners for exceptionally smooth tuning and stability. Humbuckers in the neck and bridge are selected by a three-way switch and provides players with a wide range of tones.

The Washburn HB45WH will be available in June 2014 at an expected UK RRP of £529 inc VAT.
