The other woman

By Washburn Fan-7vBnY

from Michigan

My wife refers to my guitar as "the other woman" because she is jealous of the time that I spend with it and because of how much I love it. I try to work in a few minutes playing time each day (never enough time, though).I play this jazz guitar through a Fender Acoustasonic SFX amp when I want to strum and sing. You would not believe the tone quality of this combination. TERRIFIC combination!!! Also, extremely flexible. I'm constantly finding new combinations that provide totally new sounds.When I just want to jam with the radio (mainly classic rock or smooth jazz) I run through a "ZOOM" pedal designed for accoustic guitars. I know...sounds goofy...but I pick up a lot of flexibility. From the pedal, I go into a Peavey Transtube 112SFX amp. Again, I'm still learning what is available with this combination.I've only had this guitar for a couple of years, but the more I play it the more I love it. The tone is exquisite. The tuners are effortless. The whammy bar doesn't detune the guitar. The knobs and switch are just right.The only negative thing I can think of is the weight. Compared to my acoustic-electric guitar, this one seems heavy. But it's bearable. The price is high for an amateur, but you gotta spend your money on something, right? Can't go wrong for the price for what you're getting...true quality piece of equipment.I put ELIXIR strings on about a year ago...just broke in good (not showing any signs of wear). Real good tone quality. More expensive to buy, but cheaper in the long run by not replacing them. Also, don't have to wait for new strings to "break in" all the time. Good match with this guitar.

My Favourite Mistake...

By Peeler

from Brantford, ON

I say mistake because I bought this guitar when I couldn't afford it... a few years back - HOWEVER - it is my FAVOURITE MISTAKE.This guitar is GORGEOUS... when you factor in the price tag and the gorgeous case included with it... you can't go wrong.I play hard rock music with some driving rythym and spacious atmospheric sounds using Vox amps and this guitar, hands down is my most favourite and versatile. The controllable sustain and beautiful tones produced by this guitar have eclipsed many other more expensive guitars in my collection!!!

Great sound... great price

By TygerJER

from Cincinnatu, Ohio

See all my reviews

I have played guitar for over 35 years. This one gives me all the sound and more that I want. It is very high quality and looks sweet. I have played Grtesch, Gibson, Guild and others in this style, and for the price this one can't be beaten. For the Jazz player or finger stylist, this guitar is a workhorse that can really deliver. You will not be disappointed with this guitar!

Washburn J-9 Review

By Marty Brodell

from Ballston Spa, NY

A beautifully made archtop that sounds as good as it looks. Whether it's blues or rock or jazz, this guitar can do it. It was the first archtop with the small block inside to reduce feedback (copied by Gibson on the ES-137) and it has the Feiten tuning system. A great guitar for the bucks!

Have never felt the need to play anything else.

By Sam-PMl02

from Billings, Mt

I was originally planning on buying the wb-35 by washburn, but when I went to the store with the cash they had already sold it, but had this guitar on the wall. This guitar has a solid thin neck. I have gone from playing 13 gaged flat wound strings to playing 10 and litle adjustment was needed. The neck took a little getting used to because it's the thinnest and most narrow that neck I have ever played, but it has a great feel and plays verry fast. This guitar has a tonal spectrum that supports playing everything from texas "Vaughan" tones to BB king bright and tight tones. The tunning system works verry well...I'm not sure how it works, but this guitar stays in tune for weeks no matter what you put it through (even using the bigsby) and just sounds better than other tunning systems. I hold no reservations in recommending this guitar to anyone who likes the look.
