Washburn is widely known to have produced guitars that have been played by some of the heaviest shredders to ever live. The Washburn Parallaxe V26 is a take no prisoners guitar that is fully optimized for the heavily saturated music for which it was designed. The offset V shaped body with its chamfered edge in Carbon Black Matte immediately conjures images of a stealth fighter. Paired with its 1985 Washburn HM Katana inspired headstock, the Washburn Parallaxe V is a threat to behold. The Mahogany body, glue-in Maple neck and Ebony fingerboard combine to create a tone that enjoys the thickness and richness of Mahogany and note-to-note precision of the Maple/Ebony neck. Sustain is helped by its Tune-O-Matic string-thru bridge and graphite nut. This tone travels to your amp through a pairing of a genuine USA made Seymour Duncan 59 and the Custom 5; a pairing preferred by some of the heaviest guitar players in the world. The 1-Voume / 1-Tone controls include a Coil-Split feature allowing you to switch between full humbucker and single coil. Jumbo frets allow you to fly through your riffs, Grover 18:1 tuners allow for precise tuning and the Buzz Feiten Tuning System ensures that your guitar plays in tune in all positions. Sold with a custom formed gig bag, the Washburn Parallaxe V26 is simply one of the baddest, heaviest, meanest guitars in the world.
