Guitarsite Forums Discussion Popular Topics Washburn WP-50 Re: Washburn WP-50


I have a beautiful tobacco sunburst WP-50. I bought it for a bargain price of $400 (Australian) and have to say it totally kicks butt. It plays really well and sounds even better – mine still has the original Washburn humbuckers and they are VERY loud pickups – some of the best I’ve ever heard. This plays better than almost all Gibson Les Pauls I’ve played, even those upwards of $3000. If you find one, buy it. They’re not worth a whole lot in the marketplace (you’d be lucky to get more than a grand for it) but they play like they’re worth five times that.
