Just a quick note to say one of my favourite guitar sites has moved from AbhinavSonkar.com to AbhiGuitar.com.
Pop on over and check them out as I learned a lot from there in the past.
Ola Englund must be a very happy man right now for Washburn have created not one signature guitar for him but 5, plus there are 5 USA Custom or 4 Indonesian versions available so really it is 9!
The Washburn Parallaxe Solar Series is available at a few different price points with two body variations, 6 and 7 string options and two colours Black or White. All models feature a 25.5″ scale which I’m surprised about as Ola has been using longer scale lengths for his 7 strings until now, either Evertune or Hipshot bridges and for the USA Custom versions Seymour Duncan 59’ SH1N / Custom 5 SH14B pickups and for the Indonesian models Duncan designed HB101N / HB103B pickups.
So here is how the new series is structured:
USA Custom Shop
PX-SOLAR6DLX (6 string) & PX-SOLAR7DLX (7 string) available in Carbon Black Matte with Evertune Bridge.
PX-SOLAR6 (6 string) & PX-SOLAR7 (7 string) (scooped cutaways on top of the body) with a Hipshot Bridge and available in carbon black matte (C) or white matte (WHM) finish.
PX-SOLAR6ET (6 string) EverTune bridge, soft “V” neck, available in pearl white matte (PWHM).
PX-SOLAR16ET (6 string) and PX-SOLAR17ET (7 string) EverTune bridge, available in carbon black matte.
PX-SOLAR160 (6 string) / PX-SOLAR170 (7 string) Hipshot bridge available in carbon black matte (C) or white matte (WHM) finish.

Pro-Arte strings are our the world’s best selling and D’Addario’s premium classical guitar strings. All Pro-Arte treble strings are sorted by a sophisticated computer-controlled laser machine which performs diameter/tension measurements and quality checks, insuring true sounding, precise trebles in every set. Pro-Arte basses are wound using silverplated copper on a multi-filament nylon core.
Like all the Martin SP Studio/Performance Series strings, the MSP4150 SP Phosphor Bronze Light/Medium acoustic guitar strings are ideal live, in the studio, or wherever maximum string life is desired. The creation of these high-performance Martin strings is a result of research done in cooperation with specialty steel producers. Due to the development of a top-notch ultra-high quality steel core, Martin SP strings resist breakage better than average strings. In addition, both the core wires and the plain strings are plated with a smooth, acoustic bronze finish. Though this golden bronze finish will enhance the beauty of your guitar, its purpose is much more functional—to prolong brightness, guitar string life, and provide superior tonal quality to meet the high expectations of demanding musicians.

Basswood Body With Beveled Top
Basswood provides a warmer tone than maple and other hardwoods, along with great low-end response, and is overall a lightweight wood. Perfect for non-traditional body shapes like that of the Warbeast.
Most of B.C. Rich’s body styles employ a beveled edge around the shape, including this one. In many ways bevels on a top are similar to facets on a cut stone. They catch the light and reflect at different angles, giving the instrument more of a three dimensional look. Some of the B.C. Rich top bevels are extreme and wide while others are subtle and narrow. Occasionally the shape of the instrument is accented by painting the bevels a contrasting color.
A number of B.C. Rich guitars use a classic Bolt-on construction. On these instruments a neck (typically maple) is bolted on with 4 screws to the body. This construction offers some added flexibility in the instruments adjustment and provides the option to change the neck in the future.
The Warbeast One features a maple neck with an ultra-playable natural satin finish, and a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard sans inlays, for a clean look. The deep cutaways make access to higher notes a breeze, so you can shred away in that upper register without any problems.
B.C. Rich BDSM Pickup
B.C. Rich designed their BDSM humbucking pickups to provide a solid sound and to be durable while delivering high output. BDSM stands for Broad Dynamic Sonically Matched. Which simply means that the pickup is designed to reproduce a wide range of frequencies accurately (broad dynamic). Then they are tested and matched in pairs (Neck and Bridge) by their inherent individual and signature tonal and output characteristics to give a solidly balanced tone (sonically matched).
The Warbeast One features a Tune-o-Matic bridge with string-thru-body design, for serious sustain and solid tuning. The chrome die-cast tuners seal the deal.
The Mockingbird ST is the most popular model in the Mockingbird family. The heart of the ST is its Floyd Rose Original tremolo and a pair of Rockfield Mafia pickups. These high output pickups are controlled with a selection of knobs and switches that include a 5 position varitone filter knob, two coil tap switches and a reverse phase switch. The neck-through construction also assures great tone and full fingerboard access. Other goodies include an ebony fingerboard, diamond inlays and Grover tuners. Both the Transparent Red and Honey burst color options perfectly highlight this model’s quilt maple top
Authentic Seymour Duncan gold cover for Humbucker pickups. Cover only, pickup not included. Fits Seymour Duncan and other humbucker pickups with standard string spacing (2″ or less at bridge).
Seymour Duncan made this model to look and sound like a well-worn ’50s humbucker as originally designed by Seth E. Lover. The pickups are built to traditional standards. Each has its own character and DC resistance, just like the originals. Seymour Duncan wanted to give you a pickup that looks like it’s been played regularly for 40 years, so they aged the nickel silver cover and the poles. Included is a front-tapered mounting ring and the screws that go with it. The pickup is not wax potted, which retains the vintage sound and appearance. Crafted by hand in my “Antiquity” room, each pickup is signed on the magnet and bottom plate to guarantee you are getting an original Seymour W. Duncan Antiquity.
Mounting ring length – 3.537 Mounting ring max height – 0.235 Minimal height – 0.150 Adjustable pole piece length – 0.750 Height adj. Screw height – 1.250 Magnet calibration – s-adj. Side Magnet gauss – 15-20 gauss DC ohms – 7.8k Inductance – 4.22 henries Q – 2.29
