Washburn 200 PRO Series...

...are now available from your friendly neighbourhood UK dealer. We gave the guitars a rave review back in issue 289 and we can still heartily recommended them to anyone who´s after a decent electric that´s full of tone, plays smoothly and yet won´t break the bank

The Washburn 200 PRO Series was designed around the single premise to create a truly professional series of guitars offering the best value for money in today's electric guitar market. As such, all six models in the range feature either Seymour Duncan or EMG USA pickups, top-class specifications, and are all priced between just £379 RRP inc VAT and £499 RRP inc VAT.

The 200 Pro Series guitars are available from all good retailers now.

What he doesn't know about Brian May's playing and, especially, the Red Special, isn't worth knowing.
