Washburn Guitars Expands its Idol line for 2014 -
Washburn announces the arrival of two new Idol models at this year’s NAMM show in Anaheim, CA.
Originally introduced 15 years ago, the WI64 was the very first Washburn Idol model. The 2014 model WI64TRK reproduces every detail of the original right down to the revolutionary VCC tone controls. VCC varies the humbucker pickups from full humbucking mode to coil tapped mode and every tonal colour in between. Go from thick crunchy tones to near single coil pristine tones by just rotating the knob. The WI64TRK features a thin mahogany body with set mahogany neck. The 22 fret rosewood fingerboard has dot inlays and the headstock features a gloss black cap with pearl Washburn logo and stylised W inlay. Hardware includes chrome Grover® 18:1 tuners, tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece.
Continuing Washburn's vintage finish inspired guitars comes the WI60V Idol. It features a solid mahogany spruce veneer capped body and a mahogany set neck with recessed heel for upper fret access. The 22 fret rosewood fingerboard accentuates the pearloid block inlays and the matte black capped headstock features pearloid Washburn logo and stylised inlay. The vintaged hardware compliments the finish and features a tune-o-matic bridge with stop tailpiece, Grover® 18:1 tuners with ebonite buttons and ebony control knobs.
