Washburn HB-50’s and a Vox AC30.
Steve Allen sent in this stunning shot, showing why some things are well worth the wait!
“After seeing the post of the Washburn HB-50 a little while ago I thought I’d share my recently completed collection of this amazing guitar.It has taken me 20 years to get all 3 colours, but well worth the wait. I also don’t believe there were exactly 50 made, but it’s true there aren’t very many!I bought the red one (serial #36) in 1991 as my first ever electric (I just saw it on the wall in the shop and thought…that’s for me!). The blonde one is from America (serial #50) and I’ve had it for about a year, and it still has some of the protective film under one of the truss rod cover screws! I’ve only just got my hands on the orange one (serial #15) which I’m in the middle of changing the pickups on and setting up. The amp is a 1962 Vox AC30 (Haddon transformers & military grade Mullard valves) which was wrongly being sold as a mid 70’s version….so I snapped it up on the spot!”
