In the Chicago neighborhood of Pilsen on the banks of the Chicago River west of the Loop, you¹ll find the backs upon which the City of Broad Shoulders was built. A neighborhood founded and populated by hard-working laborers willing to put in a full day¹s work to earn the American Dream. Like you, they¹re reaching for their brass ring.
And that¹s the spirit behind The Washburn Pilsen Idol. A no-frills, humbucker-packed, single-cut slab of the finest mahogany with a carved maple top, mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard. Passionately hand-built in Washburn¹s Chicagoland facility by some of America¹s best luthiers, the Pilsen delivers night after night, city after city taking the abuse of the road in stride while responding to your every learned input.
With the Pilsen¹s coil-tap technology, you have the flexibility to shift the dual Seymour Duncan® pickups from a hammering humbucker crunch to a razor-sharp single-coil scream with just a flick of the wrist. Like all Washburn USA guitars, the Pilsen Idol incorporates the Buzz Feiten Tuning System™ for unsurpassed intonation. A stop tail with a TonePros® tune-o-matic bridge, stop tailpiece, and 18:1 Grover® tuners hold you in tune.
The Washburn Pilsen Idol: a shining example of gritty American ingenuity.
