Headhunter pickups and Feiten tuning provide snarl with stability!
The Washburn X30 Electric Guitar features a solid carved-top alder body, rosewood fingerboard and a high gloss finish. Equipped with Washburn Headhunter pickups and Grover tuners, this string thru the body beauty is full of long lasting tone. The carved top X guitars are beautiful to look at but even more beautiful to play. You'll find the tones you need in the X30 for many different music styles, particularly for the heavy stuff!
The Buzz Feiten Tuning System and Grover tuners keep you perfectly in tune, and the Washburn Headhunter humbucking pickups provide the power you need for both chunky rhythm lines and soaring solos.
The Buzz Feiten Tuning System is a tempered tuning formula, which uses a compensated nut and saddle to correct the inherent intonation problems of the Western tuning formula. The system that Buzz devised has been a godsend to guitarists. Fans of the system include Eddie Van Halen, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Liona Boyd and Andy Summers. The Buzz Feiten Tuning System is standard on all USA made Washburn guitars and basses and is featured on select imported models. Washburn is the only major guitar manufacturer to incorporate the system as a standard feature on production guitars.

As the first Washburn I have ever owned, I was impressed. I was really just in need of a new guitar when I bought it, and I brought it home and found it looked really nice, considering it's Washburn, and you really don't expect 'metal' looking guitars from them (think Bootsy Collins Space Bass)I plugged i tin and right away noticed how bright it sounded, and how accessible the fretboard was. The 24th fret made a difference, and the frets were good for a guy with bigger fingers like myself. Luckly, I needed it for a rock show with my friend that night, so it held up pretty well, and sounded as good as I could have expected (The Head Hunters were new to me, but sounded fine)The only read issues is that the black gloss finish shows fingerprints really easy, and if you are super OCD like me, you can't stand it having smudges all over. The strap buttons are a bit small, so I just invested in some strap locks and the stock strings are twangy, and not gread (I just replaced 'em with some earnie balls right away anyways)This guitar is all around good for any type of playing, as long as you don't expect it to compete with the respective big names in the genre (I can play some clean alternative and classic rock, as well as use my boss ds-1 and get a crunchy death metal tone) but I'd much rather just get another guitar respective to what I'd like to be playing
It does what it would usually take 3 or 4 guitars to do. weather you are rockin it out shredding, playing some jazz, contemporary gospel, or some out of the box fusion stuff......This Guitar can do it all!!!!!!!! I was looking for a sound that was close to a paul reed but had the depth of a strat with more warm and bright sound and I found it in this guitar!
Dont get me wrong this is a nice guitar. It has a very fast neck, awesome actions, and sounds ok. The first thing i did was switch out the headhunter pickups for some emgs and it sounds nice now but i shouldnt of had to. it should have sounded alot nicer.
its a washburn... what can you say... pretty good over all in my opinion. i would get it if i had enough money but i just bought a hummingbird so im pretty poor right now
I just recieved my X-30 a half hour before my regular Thursday night gig. I took it out of the box, tuned it up and went to the gig. I played it all night and was surprised it delivered every sound I needed, right out of the box.The coil splitting knob gives a nice clean twang on the single coil setting and the humbucker mode made it scream almost like a Les Paul.If I rolled off the volume and tone knob a bit I was in jazz country. I was using a Vox 50 watt valvetronics amp. The Buzz Feiten tuning system is a big plus.The only problem I have is not having inlay markers on the fretboard and on some of the ads there is a X inlay somewhere around the twelfth fret, mine doesn't. Other than that,I would recomend this guitar to anybody. Your getting a lot of guitar for your money.
