Washburn Parallaxe: Menacing Metal Tone and Looks to Match!
Made for metal, the Washburn PXL20EWH Parallaxe electric guitar delivers striking looks and boatloads of resonant tone. EMG 85 and EMG 81 pickups yield a wall of sound that'll pour from your amp in a powerful flood, as this axe's mahogany body and neck resonate with a dark, warm tone with plenty of sustain. A secure Babicz Full Contact bridge and black Locking Grover Exclusive 18:1 tuners will keep your strings in tune for longer sessions of rocking, and an ebony fingerboard with 22 frets harnesses a tight action for hours on end of speedy runs and metal-infused licks.
Single-Cutaway Solid Mahogany Body
It's hard to resist that powerful sound yielded by mahogany-bodied electric guitars. Just the weight of a mahogany axe gives you an idea of the heaviness your tone is resonating with. Mahogany will really push those low and middle frequencies for a sound full of darkness and sustain. Cut in Washburn's PXL body shape, this Parallaxe features an eye-catching single-cutaway contour, giving your fingers easy access to those higher frets.
Mahogany Neck and Ebony Fingerboard
The mahogany neck on your Washburn PXL20EWH Parallaxe electric guitar is cut into a comfortable C shape for your hand to enjoy. 22 frets span over a smooth and buttery ebony fingerboard, and each fret gets nice and close to your strings. This is a great neck to take advantage of if you're into speedy metal runs. When you juice up on gain, you'll never be short of sustain -- a great bonus if you like to fuel your output with some menacing feedback.
EMG 85/81 Pickup Pairing
The EMG 85/81 pickup configuration is undoubtedly a popular pairing for metal enthusiasts. The EMG 85 at the neck fuels your signal with a thick and dark sound that really gets at those lower frequencies without getting muddy. The EMG 81 at the bridge pierces the air like a knife through butter. Take advantage of your tone control and independent volume controls to find the right combination of brightness/darkness you're looking for.
Babicz Full Contact Bridge
The Babicz Full Contact bridge will hold each string down with assurance and security, so you can focus more on your game without worrying about your intonation. This guitar's black Locking Grover Exclusive 18:1 tuners will help each string maintain its tuning for longer sessions of rocking while also maximizing on sustain.
