Description: 

The Washburn MG122 ARTIST is part of Washburn's Mercury series produced between 1993-1996 under Grover Jackson. The MG122 ARTIST was part of the Mercury I series which were made in the United States. This serie was highly regarded as high-end instruments and the Mercury I series had "chunkier" necks than the Mercury II series. The Washburn MG122 ARTIST also has the advanced features like the Wilkinson VS-100 tremolo and direct-mounted Seymour Duncan pickups. The MG122 ARTIST is similar to the Washburn Mercury MG122 but they differ in the Bridge Humbucker pickup. The Washburn MG122 ARTIST has a Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates pickup as opposed to the Seymour Duncan JB pickup on the MG122. The MG122 ARTIST also didn't come in Trans. Red like the MG122 before it. 

Other features are:

  • Honduras Mahogany body
  • Quarter sawn maple neck
  • Offfset pearl dot inlay
  • 6105 Dunlop Fretwire
  • Wilkiloid nut by Wilkonson US.
  • Locking Gotoh Tuners (Magnum III)
  • Come with Washburn's OHSC.
  • C.L.A.S. (Convergent Linear Alignment System). This insures a perfectly straight string path through the nut to the tuner.
