I have been playing for 30 years and I love this axe. The L-5 style is dead on and the playability is nearly unsurpassed. Great tone, look, and feel make this J6 a players axe. Washburn has hit a real home run with the J6 and few others come even close to all you get for the money. These are no longer being made and as such will become a classic in no time at all. If you are lucky enough to get one for under $600.00 don't delay; you'll be glad you bought it. Fit, Finish, Tone, feel, is all there.
In my 15 years of live jazz playing my best 3 recorded shows have been with this guitar, the Tone is rich and smooooooth, the playability is silky yet expressive, and because of the price I was able to get that new THD univalve AMP too.....
I own one of these guitars. I was saving up to buy an ES 175 Gibson, after hearing this guitar I said, "This is the sound I want!" The heck with the ES-175. It had everything I wanted in a jazz guitar. I would have paid double for the guitar if I were blind folded and wasn't aware of who made the guitar, plays like a Gibson. Best hollow body guitar out there in this price range!
This is the poor man's Gibson L-5. I use it as my main guitar and it has not let me down so far. I love it!
Great value, reliable and tone is super. Bridge pickup a bit weak but good for adding color to neck pick up. Well worth the investment. Looks good too.
Tone and action so good, I sold my ES 175. I'm adding a P90 to the bridge position to make it even more awesome. Excellent attention to detail and good acoustic sound as well. Tail-piece being replaced to reduce cheesey look. Well-worth the money.
I have used this guitar for two years now in the Ball state university jazz program, and have been very happy with it's tone for both big band and combo playing. this guitar is the best value on the market, alot of guitar for not alot of money.
I searched for over a year to find the right guitar and stumbled upon the J6 while p;aying a Gibson ES 137. Was just about to give my plastic and picked up the J6 just for the heck of it and couldn't put it down. The tone, feel, quality and sound far exceeded my expectations. The price was unreal. I had to have it. Best purchase decision I have made to date. I have several other good guitars including a Fender Strat and Gibson ES 335. There is something very special about the Washburn that fits my style to a "t". I have stopped looking at the name on the instrument, and have started to use my ears to decide what's best. The bonus is I now own a good quality jazz box and a lot of extra dollars in my pocket.
Nice L-5 copy great tone
