The entire range of Parallaxe guitars by Washburn is heavily discounted on PMT at the moment. The one on the title is the cheapest one on offer, but I would recommend going for the higher tier which have heavier discount and are quite great for their price. Whether you need a backup guitar for gigging, or just a great guitar to learn on for a reasonable price, this is a good chance to pick one up.

If you are looking for a mid-range axe without compromise for great features such as an Original Floyd Rose, Seymour Duncan pickups, and Ebony Fretboard, there are several models around the £550 mark (nearly 50% off their prices on other stores - around a grand on GAK). I would recommend the PXS20FRTBB, which has great reviews* at its original price and is basically a steal for £569. Currently the best deal on the market outside of second hand for a versatile guitar with an original Floyd Rose (not a cheaper, licensed one).

PMT also has good deals on Blackstar amps at the moment*, so if you are looking to upgrade your starting gear, this is a good opportunity to get a nice guitar and a nice amp without breaking the bank.

Yeah, it's certainly not the most sought after brand when it comes to electric guitars (they are known for their acoustics), but with all the features on these, I simply cannot fault them. And heck, although looks is not the most important thing for a mid-tier instrument, the finish on PXS20FRTBB (the one in the picture) is just killer! And this is mid-tier only in price; the features are commonly only found in guitars that cost near a grand or more. Outside the wood (mahogany), I think it is better than my £1000+ Fender in every way. Looks like Washburn really want to make a name for themselves in the heavy metal crowd.

Totally unrelated to this my good man, but check out the digital Yamaha THR practise amps. Basically they mimic five different famous amp set ups/sounds and you can adjust via USB to a computer. Oh my word. So much fun for a living room noodle...

Funny thing, I ordered the Washburn PXS20FRTBB and a THR5 amp yesterday. You must be my doppelganger.

Great deal, I would get that white one with the actives for £329 but i've got a Schecter that's similar and already own a Washburn N24 so i can't justify it .

My Ibanez just looked at me and said "Don't you dare"

Also great fun.

Crazy how good some of these emulated amps are tbh!

good spot. only issue for me is that its made in korea. I think that charging £1000odd is too much . Even half that is still too much. however that is the trend over the last few years. I prefer USA or Japanese made guitars. however, if you happen to be in the market for a high end (hardware) different looking guitar, then this is a good find. by the time you get the branded hardware, and get one built, it will cost more than the £550. i'll vote hot because we hardly see any guitar offers on HUK

I've been out of the game for a few years (used to work in a music shop in my youth) but this has more than a look of ESP about it for me.
Shall check the range and prices out tho, thanks

Made in Indonesia, not Korea, which in theory could be worse, but I guess the only parts that could theoretically suffer are the body and neck, as the rest is very high quality 3rd party hardware. To be honest, nowadays Korean factories make some very stellar guitars that are well above 1k, for example the "Woody" Ibanez JEM. Korea is very much going to be the new Japan; back in the day, Japanese guitars were the "cheap" models, similar to Korean ones now. However, their prices have been going up, and soon we will be seeing instruments from Korea being highly sought after while companies move their cheaper lines in less developed countries with perhaps more dubious quality control.

It has very similar features to the higher end LTD (not ESP Japan, those are way more expensive).

Yeah, LTD is what I was thinking, 2 kids have dulled the mind a little and I don't get to exercise my fingers as much as I used to.
Won't dislodge my Ibanez JS from top of my collection, but certainly worth a closer look, I can attest to the quality if it's anything like older Washburns.

Great guitars, Washburns. Superb find op!
