  • Washburn J9 Hollowbody

    2000 Washburn J9 "Washington" Thinline hollowbody guitar.

    Fairly rare issue of the Samick-built Korean thinline jazz box (They no longer offer a similar guitar), most were aimed at the RockaBilly market and were black with a Bigsby installed. It has the full sized 17" body, but 2" deep at the rim - about the same thickness as an ES-335. Much more comfortable to play than the full depth body, especially when sitting.

    It's a hollowbody with a bridge block, a hybrid between the full hollows and the semi-hollows. Although the body is quite resonant (the top is about twice the area of an 335!) the feedback is much more controllable with the block. The internal volume of the body is much larger than a 335 so it retains a lot of the acoustic tonal qualities of a full-depth jazz box. Very nice player, and the tone can range from Jazzy to Bluesy.

    It's in very good condition and comes with the OHSC.

    Pictures of mine here:


    And to give you an idea of the Jazz tone there is a Youtube video here:


    $700 plus FedEx shipping, will consider trades.
