  • WASHBURN XMPRO2FBB ELECTRIC GUITAR

    Anyone has any experience with this guitar. I really like this guitar but only thing which makes me uneasy is that this guitar is made in China. I can get one for 330 dollars. Please advise. Previous guitars I have owned are Indonesian made Ibanez Rg321 and GRG270B guitars. Both are very good guitars that I have been happy with.

    Have no experience with washburn company. Someone have experience with other chineese made models of the big brands. Any comments most appreciated!

    Here is a link of the guitar specs from the company website:

    Lots of guitars are made in China these days. As long as you like the guitar, I wouldn't worry about it. FWIW, I don't think there are any US made Washburn guitars any more unless you find a used one.

      Washburn has always been a bang for the buck company to me.  I have a Bantam Series Bass and a P290 both made overseas and they have been very dependable instruments.  Having owned other Budget Imports in the past, I would say that these are in the upper echelon.

    Except for the very low end line, Ive found Washburn guitars and basses to be good qaulity equal to and sometimes better then other mfg similair price range offerings.

      Seem a little bit below the going rate per a quick Google. I saw new one for $399 mostly, one listing for $359. Used, that might be a little high.

      In my experience Washburn offers a good value at around this price point. I wouldn't worry about it not being decently made.
