My take on the "good-jazz-tone-on-a-budget" quest. I have recently bought chinese (!) Washburn HB-35 in cherry red. I did the unthinkable - I bought it ONLINE without trying it first. It actually turned out to be pretty good guitar with sweet and loud (and I mean LOUD) sound unplugged, but the stock Washburn humbuckers were plain terrible. They killed the guitar´s natural twang and resonance and added hars mids, muddy and boomy low end and ice-picky highs....oops- every guitarist´s nightmare, I guess :-D So I decided to fix it using HB-sized P90s from Bare Knuckle pickups. They call them Mississippi Queens and I call them Tone Kings. They literally saved the guitar and now it is not only a sweet sounding jazz-box, but killing classic and southern rock machine as well. I have to mention, that the Washburn is very well made, actually better than my former Gibson Es 135 LTD, which costs ten times more (really 10x - no exaggerating here) and had troublesome neck and crappy switch. Kudos to guys at Bare Knuckle. They make some great stuff ! :-)
