Washburn HB35 – ‘Hearts’


This Washburn HB35 was received at the same time as my other HB35 ‘First Male Lesbian‘ guitar. It has seen very little action over the years, was never played live and has always been kept in my studios guitar rack. It featured in a handful of ‘365 Sparks’ tracks as well as some early solo tracks, but beyond these, it has sat largely unused on my guitar rack – which is a shame because it’s a lovely guitar. Had i not been fortunate enough to have two of these, it would have seen a lot more use.

SKU: 0078 Category:

As part of my endorsement deal with Washburn guitars, they sent me two HB35's in identical colour at the same time at my request. Out of their entire range at the time, i really thought these suited my sound and style the most. Due to the fact i had two of these [alongside another two guitars they sent me of their Pilsen Idol guitars!....] this one has seen very little usage since the day i got it. It's sat in a smokefree recording studio environment since i received it and has only played a part in about 20/30 tracks and has never been played live [or been removed from the studio for that matter]. Due to the fact it's been barely used, it's in great shape with no issues at all and plays great.

How old is the guitar?
The guitar was sent to me as part of an endorsement deal with Washburn Guitars in 2005 and it was made that year.

How does it play?
It plays great. There's such little usage on the fretboard that it still feels like new.

Does it stay in tune well?
It does! It has grover machineheads that are optimised for staying in tune and these are still holding up.

Can i pay in instalments?
I was asked this question a few years ago by a friend that wanted to buy the guitar. Yes. I'm up for you paying for the guitar in instalments so long as they don't exceed 2 monthly instalments. Obviously, i will only send the guitar once the entire fee has been received. Get in touch if you want to speak about this.

  • Guitar
  • Hard Shell Case

This guitar is in little-used condition. Unlike my other HB35 that was used quite a bit and has some very obvious wear and tear, this guitar looks pretty much new, has no issues with the pots being a little loose and very faintly has a slight gold peel on the tuners and pickups, but very slight - this obviously does not affect the sound in any way. There's no major dings or scratches, just a single minor one and a few buckle scratches on the back of the guitar. The hearts that i have stuck on the guitar come off very easily and leave no visible trace [before sticking them on i tested with one].

Shipping cannot be determined until i know where i'll be shipping the item to. Obviously if i'm shipping it to somewhere in the UK the price will be fairly cheap - however if i'm shipping it to Australia for example, it's going to be more expensive. If you want this item and would like me to get you a shipping estimate, please email me before purchasing - daveit@daveitferris.com.

In regards to packaging, i have a hard shell plastic guitar case designed specifically for this case that i will ship it with. It may increase the shipping price a little, but it'll be worth it for the case and safety!
