Editor's Notes & Price Research

Written by persian_mafia

Hollowbody guitars are typically lighter and more resonant than their solid body counter parts. This gives a somewhat mellower tone to the guitar making it well suited to Jazz, Blues or Rock. The HB30 features a double cutaway and includes a solid maple block in the center, increasing sustain and reducing susceptibility to feedback in high volume situations. ~ persian_mafia

Hi all, I came across this deal shopping for semi-hollow guitars. I want something that will be versatile and sound great, but I don't feel like breaking the bank. I also want a case as part of the deal.

World Music Supply has the Washburn HB30 Hollow Body Electric Guitar with Case was $599.99 now $299.99 shipped after coupon. Use coupon code hb30 (undercase intentional) at checkout.

Msrp $1100
Was $599.99
(-$300 coupon)
Now $299.99

This guitar is very versatile for blues, roots rock, jazz, alternative, etc. I played it at a local shop and loved it. They had it for $400, sans case. But this at $299 shipped with case is a slick deal. I have had great luck too with WMS. No tax for me when I buy there and great service.

It has Washburn open coil pups (the 621 in the neck and 623 in the bridge position) and I really like how they work being paired with maple. They can sparkle and crunch.

It has grover tuners too, which is always a plus.

Anyway, I always gravitate to that semi-hollow brilliant tone like Chuck Berry, Beetles. But you could easily rock out on this like the Foo Fighters. It would make a smooth jazz machine too.

They still have black and red available at the time of this posting.

Rock on!

Hi Bryan. Just my take here, but a lot of guitars are coming out of China and many are really good. The reviews and demos of this, coupled with my having played it, let me attest that it is very high quality. You may have been mentioning country of origin to contrast it from a Gibson and that is very true, it isn't made in the US. But I don't know if you could get a US guitar like this with case for even close to $299. Personally, I want one of these to have and use for a long time. Once it is beaten up and road worn, maybe I can sell it and make back 75% of my money on a great day, 50% on a bad. Then again, why sell it ever? I will probably give it to an aspiring musician (hopefully in the family) one day. That's the kind of guitar this is for me. It will have a distinct sound that I am going for and serve me reliably. It also looks great. Not worth paying more for my needs for the 35 model or even one of the vintage models, although those are sweet too. So, that's my take anyway and my use-case. Players (or investors) who are looking to flip one or have it increase in value as a collectors item will pass on this one.

Appears to be an older model, possibly made in China. HB35 seems like a newer, better regarded model. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Not sure there's a lot of resale value here. It's no Gibson. In addition, a handful of failed sales on eBay of these exact guitars from WMS. Maybe they bought old stock to turn a profit, and are finding it hard to move them?

Well said, don't ever get rid of your gear period!! That's unless you get divorced...even then I would highly discourage it. Washburn makes a good guitar, I'd also look at a used epiphone, the ones from Japan are a little more but are amazing, if u can find one.

Good catch on this one. Contacted WMS' president Jason Struble. This is a discontinued model and they caught a great buy out of this product. $299 with case is a great deal. It is strung from factory with D'Addario light guage (.009). If you like .10s you will need to adjust the nut a little. That's just a guess and won't know for sure until mine arrive.

I asked Mr. Struble if he could provide a similar discount for the HB35. He could not. The only difference betwee the two guitars is that the HB30 has chrome hardware and the HB35 is gold plated.

If you've got more than 2 or 3 that won't work..

Thank God my wife supports my habit. I have a Dean Dave Mustaine Mako acoustic/electric, an ebony Gibson Les Paul '50s Tribute, an Epiphone White Lightning Les Paul, an Epiphone Les Paul Traditional Pro Gold top and an Epiphone Tony Iommi SG.

Looking to buy an Epi flying v, a Dave Mustaine Dean Zero Punk, something with a floyd rose and maybe a John 5 tele down the road.

Possibly made in China? Today's Washburn is synonymous with made in China. And, no, if you are looking at resale value, you definitely aren't looking at Washburns or most any other made in china guitar. There are very few Chinese guitars that have demand on the used market. But there are some. Frankly if you are somebody that cares about resale value, you aren't looking at brand new guitars at all unless there is a considerable discount.
