Washburn Pilsen Idol PI70 Electric Guitar

In the Chicago neighborhood of Pilsen on the banks of the Chicago River west of the Loop, you’ll find the backs upon which the City of Broad Shoulders was built. A neighborhood founded and populated by hard-working laborers willing to put in a full day’s work to earn the American Dream. Like you, they’re reaching for their brass ring.
And that’s the spirit behind the Washburn Pilsen Idol PI70 Electric Guitar. A no-frills, humbucker-packed, single-cut slab of the finest mahogany with a carved maple top, mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard. Passionately hand-built in Washburn’s Chicagoland facility by some of America’s best luthiers, the Washburn Pilsen delivers night after night, city after city taking the abuse of the road in stride while responding to your every learned input.
With the Pilsen’s coil-tap technology, you have the flexibility to shift the dual Seymour Duncan pickups from a hammering humbucker crunch to a razor-sharp single-coil scream with just a flick of the wrist. Like all Washburn USA guitars, the Washburn Pilsen Idol Guitar incorporates the Buzz Feiten Tuning System for unsurpassed intonation. A stop tail with a TonePros tune-o-matic bridge, stop tailpiece, and 18:1 Grover tuners hold you in tune.
With its long sustain, sweet tone and ergonomically design, the Pilsen Idol PI70 guitar easily competes with the others USA custom-built guitars that cost four times as much.
The Washburn PI70 Pilsen Idol: a shining example of gritty American ingenuity.
