    Washburn WIDLXAPLTD Original Idol

    I don't buy guitars online. I don't buy a guitar that I can't put in my hands. But was checking out the Sweetwater catalog and this guitar caught my eye and then just kept calling out to me. The guys at Sweetwater were so helpful in giving me the courage, I was so worried about the neck, the action, I have never done anything like this. But, I went for it and wow, when I took it out of the box I was blown away. It was perfect in every way, the action on the neck was set up very low as I requested, and it played like a dream, just flawless. Then I plugged it into my Marshall and the tone was amazing, wow. Everything on the guitar is first class from the workmanship, pickups, tuners and hardware. And it is simply as beautiful to look at as it is to play. I could not be more pleased.

    Absolutely FUN to PLAY Incredable !

    As an avid guitarist,I rate this instrument at 5-stars for just the facts alone-of it being the ONE of many guitars i play as a FUN to play-guitar. After all this is one of the reasons one may play anyway, not to mention the fact that after five or so minutes of playing it, you can't put it down.Being a wood-worker and finding spalted mapel a plus in an instrument that sounds and plays even better than it looks,the basic attitude of what a fine instrument is all about . This guitar comes alive with flat-wound strings I added to it and my fellow band players can't keep their eyes off it..Amazing enough it can jump from an acoustic sound to an electric lead in the second of a toggle switch when playing it through a Fender reverb amp-SO SWEET ! This washburn so unexpectedly took me by total surprise being use to playing the fender telecasters and the gretsch guitars i so often handle as preferance for a good sound and their playabilties. No adjustment made right out of the box just chunked on a set of flat-wounds and it automatically turned my head as this instrument as a piece of art..-Hats off and a standing ovation to Sweetwater Music and of course Washburn for this True Quality experience of what some of the best things in life can bring.Someone MADE IT HAPPEN, and i was one of the Lucky ones on the receiving end.

    good guitar for the money

    This is the second guitar I bought from sweetwater without playing it first.I talked to the guys and Will said it had a thin neck & nice action, He was dead on! the only thing wrong is very cheep tuners so back online I went, This time I got a call from Mike setting me up with a set of Grovers. I can't say enough about Kyle my guy and the rest of the people at sweetwater! I will keep shopping with you.
