This HB-30 is in Near Mint, barley touched condition and has a sweet tone with an upgraded set of Seymour Duncan PAF humbuckers.
Resonant Tone with Incredible Sustain
The Washburn HB30 semi-hollowbody electric guitar is a prime example of how versatile these semi-acoustic instruments can be. You get the warm, resonant sound you’d expect from a hollowbody, with enhanced sustain and note definition from the maple center block. The center block reduces resonant feedback too, so it’s great onstage. For tonal flexibility, two humbuckers with their own volume and tone controls are ready to rock. Long story short, you’ve got a great guitar for almost any style when you’re holding the Washburn HB30 semi-hollowbody.

Long spruce center block enhances your tone
You get a lot of tonal bang for your buck with the Washburn HB30, thanks in part to its maple center block. The center block allows the otherwise-hollowbody to resist resonant-frequency feedback. That means you can rock out louder, with more gain, without your amplifier squealing out of control. Maple is a snappy tonewood that enhances your note definition, clarity, and sustain.
Elegant appointments throughout
Washburn designed the HB30 semi-hollowbody with a decidedly vintage vibe. Multi-laminate binding adorns the body, F-holes, and fretboard for an incredibly smooth appearance. While it plays incredibly well, it doesn’t hurt that the HB30 is a great-looking guitar too.
