Washburn Parallaxe S160
The Parallaxe S160 is a straight up shred monster and its high gloss black finish and katana inspired headstock design ensures everyone knows it! With it’s asymmetrical, double cutaway body with a Duncan Designed HB-101 in the neck position and Duncan Designed Distortion HB-103 for the bridge and simple 1 volume – 1 push/pull (coil-tap) tone along with a 3 way selector switch for the electronics outlay, the variance of the heavy and aggressive tonal ranges is endless.
A full 2 octave, 25.5″ scale Ovangkol fingerboard combined with the sonic characteristics of its basswood body and hard rock maple neck make for sharp and crisp note to note articulation; a fierce pairing with the D.D. Distortions.
Adorned in black hardware, including a hard tail six saddle bridge and string through body design for added sustain, the new Washburn Parallaxe S160 is not just fearsome to look at and lightning fast to play, it’s an absolute beast of a machine designed with the most serious of shred players in mind.
