SOURCE: what kind of strings are best for washburn X 10

the washburn X10 is an electric guitar.

first thing you you want to make sure of is that you ask for electric guitar strings

next consider what kind of music your are playing...

heavier music or really moody warm tones your going to want thicker strings

med to heavy guage

if you want clear crisp tones than go with lighter guage

light to med

lighter guages are also easier on the finger tips.

the sizes usually refer the the smallest string on the bottom or the first string.

9 is the light 10-11 is med 12 is heavy

you might also want to consider nylon coated strings

they last longer

have great tone

easy on the fnger tips

but they cost more

SOURCE: washburn guitar mg-20 pick up switch position 5

if everything is standard on that guitar then the only reason that pick up wouldnt work is because its a defective pick up or a wire is disconnected. it may also be possible that the selector switch is bad. take a small screw driver and tap the pick-ups in all positions while plugged in to the guitar amp and the volumes up ( not all the way) just loud enough that you can hear the tapping. you find the bad pick up when you cant hear the tapping with that pick up selected.

SOURCE: string peg required for washburn d10b

http://www.stevesmusiccenter.com/EZPeg.html

A new type of peg that makes it easier to change strings!

Either that or most guitar shops stock string pegs, Just ask at the counter .. .If they don't have them and can't get any in then they are not a real guitar shop in my opinion

What would cause certain strings on my banjo to have a flat sound and not a ringing tone? These are a brand new set. thank you ...


The laws of physics govern this. The strings "ring" while they resonate. The time they resonate is related to the "Q" of the string or the efficiency. The Q is the enrgy stored divided by the energy lost per CYCLE of the oscilation. Strings that damp out quickly have a low "Q". This can be caused by any of several things thaat include anything that can dampen the oscillation. String quality is important as well as secure attachemnt at each end and proper placement in the nut at the head. See if you can find anything that creats drag INCLUDING string height that affects the windage as they vibrate. First place to look is at the resonator end. Are the strings well attached at the end? Is the bridge properly placed and setting tight on the head? The bridge often has offsetss for some strings... check that it is properly oriented. I will refer you to videos on banjo stringing on YouTube, They can cover much more than we can here using text.

If I strum harder on my guitar a buzzing noise comes out of the amp. Also every sound I try on the amp sounds very twangy and painful to the ears. I use an overdrive pedal with it, but every setting is...


If you don't want distortion, get rid of the overdrive pedal... Twangy USUALLY comes from the GUITAR and NOT the amp... test it on a different amp to decide... Buzzing CAN be caused by "fret buzz" which is due to IMPROPER guitar setup such as neck bend and string height.
Start using ONLY clean channel on the amp and NO reverb. If you verify that the guitar sounds bad on a different amp, take it in to have it setup properly.

I need to know how the five way switch works. I don't know which switch position turns on which pick ups.


In a guitar with 3 pickups a 5 way switch works like this. With the switch all the way forward( towards the tuning pegs) the pickup closest to the tuning pegs or end of the neck is completely on ( if your volume control is all the way on). The next position (moving away from the tuning pegs or neck) is a combination of the neck pickup and the middle pickup. The third position moving away from the neck is completely the middle pickup. The fourth position is a combination of the middle pickup and the bridge ( where the strings are fastened) and the fifth position is completely the bridge.

Washburn guitar B and high E string sound real buzzy-tinny. am fretting it clean. It just started doing it. Any Help?


Probably time for string replacement !!! They do go bad...

Get a set and try the E string... if it fixes that one, change ALL the strings at one sitting, but do them one at a time and tune each as you go... this keeps the tension and minimizes the interaction when you do the final tuning.

Washburn D10BK has a background buzz i can not isolate! Constant


sound like a bad audio cord.  Are you too close to the amp and getting feedback?  Do you have the gain up to high?
