Now - how hard was this guitar to photograph? It took Dan and I to combine our photos to get good examples of how many colors are in this 'Solar Fire' paint finish!
As you may have seen on the video I recorded once this guitar arrived - as the biggest Washburn Idol dealer on the planet - it's really an adjustment for me to see, feel and play a thick body Idol guitar with a reverse 6 inline headstock.
However - after visiting Washburn and carefully listening and personally playing the HM Series.... I think I get it. I may not fully appreciate the headstock on an Idol, I do completely understand how amazing the Parker carbon fretboards are on these Washburn HM guitars.
BSG will be doing many, many HM series guitars going forward with Washburn and these Chewy MASTERPIECE is a great way to start!
Again - the specs are solid mahogany body back and carved top and mahogany set-in neck with a Carbon Glass Composite 24 fret fingerboard.
Add in 'direct mount' EMG 81/85 humbuckers and an Original Floyd Rose Trem... and you have one pretty aggressive guitar - ready for battle.
But the paint on this guitar just overwhelms. Even the photos below really can't explain how this paint's colors 'move' when the guitar is moved. Much more than the often used 'flip flop' paint....there is a huge palette of colors on this guitar. Literally. Chewy once again - just amazes!
The eBay and Gbase price on this guitar is 1975 USD. This price includes worldwide shipping.
The BoogieBoard and BSG Family pricing on this masterpiece is 1775 USD - delivered anywhere in the world!
So how about that? This is an amazing guitar - fast as you can imagine - with a totally custom paint job by Washburn's guru - Chewy! For 1775! And we will ship it ANYWHERE on the Globe!
Oh yes - did I mention the neck? Fast is the ONLY description that is appropriate. This neck profile - matched with the Carbon Glass Fingerboard is an incredible combination.
