Washburn Guitars is bringing back one of their popular models from the '90s, the unique looking Washburn P4.
Washburn P4 Tiffany Blue
The new P4 guitars expands Washburn's Nuno Bettencourt signature guitar series, providing a nice contrast to the superstrat shred machines it is lined with.
At the core of the guitar is a solid mahogany body cut into a retro looking double cutaway shape. A carved and bound maple top adds to the appeal of the guitar and unique look of the guitar.
Attached to the body is 25.5" scale length mahogany neck, topped by a bound 22 fret ebony fretboard. When you play it, elegant pearl teardrop inlays guide your left hand position.
Keeping the strings in-tune and stable are TonePros tune-o-matic style bridge, Schaller fine tuning tailpiece and Grover 18:1 tuners. Aside from these hardware, the P4 also features the Buzz Feiten Tuning System, which helps ensure accurate intonation across the fretboard.
Capturing the sound of the guitar are two Seymour Duncan '59 pickups. These humbuckers were designed by Seymour to reproduce the tones of '59 era PAF pickups, resulting in a retro-ish sound that matches the guitar's over look. The pickups are controlled via a straightforward combination of a 3-way toggle switch, volume knob, and tone knob.
Washburn P4 Silver Sparkle
The re-issue P4 guitars will come out of the Washburn USA Custom Shop and are designed to be faithful recreations of the original P4. Washburn describes the guitar tone to be thick and meaty, ideal for blues, jazz and classic rock.
It comes in two finishes, Tiffany Blue and Silver Sparkle. To find out more about this guitar, you can visit Washburn.
