This 8-string Washburn Was Made to Shred

If you're into metal, then you'll love the Washburn Parallaxe PXM18 8-string solidbody electric guitar. Designed for the modern metal player, the Parallaxe PXM18 sports all the tonal tools needed to shred and chug like a pro. It starts off with a solid alder body for fat sound and big sustain. Tone screams out of a pair of EMG active pickups that are directly mounted to the body for maximum sustain and tonal transfer. Add to that a thin maple neck, ebony fretboard, extra jumbo frets, and a Tune-o-matic fixed bridge, and you're ready to set the stage ablaze with the Washburn Parallaxe PXM18 8-string!

Create metal mayhem with this tricked out guitar

The Washburn Parallaxe PXM18 8-string was designed with metal guitarists in mind. From the comfortable body to the thin neck and super-jumbo frets, this axe was made to shred. You'll never lack tone with a pair of EMG 808 humbucking pickups in the bridge and neck. These pickups deliver everything from clean to scream. The Tune-o-matic fixed bridge gives you the sustain you need to rock out. And the Buzz Feiten Tuning System lets you play more in tune than you thought possible. The sleek and good-looking Washburn Parallaxe PXM18 8-string is ready to take the stage and blow away the crowd.

Better intonation with the Buzz Feiten Tuning System

Hey, the Western tuning formula isn't perfect - that's why Washburn equipped the Parallaxe PXM18 8-string with the Buzz Feiten Tuning System. This compensated nut and saddle system corrects the inherent intonation problems any musician faces when using Western tuning. The result? More precise, stable tuning across every single note on your fretboard. Fans of the Buzz Feiten Tuning System include Eddie Van Halen, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, and Andy Summers, and we're sure you'll love it too.
