    Washburns are a great pick for anyone.
    Im glad you've picked it..
    they've got excellent voice contour control..easier/finer tuning possibilities..theres an easier access to play the higher frets.. especially when you got the stubby fingers and shorter arms :p..basically the washburn quality is unbeatable...
    i think it'll do a damn fine job for you..lead or not.


    naturally, i want you to get the anarchy series :rock:

    Dunno how good the trem on the X11 is (is there one?)
    But the X16 will be pretty decent. Washburn makes good guitars for their price (unfortunately in India this does tend to be expensive)

    i think you should also look at the N1 ...it should be in the same price range

    The N1 is a good guitar, though the N2 is much better.

    im not considering the n series cause its only 21 frets....

    Would a tune-o-matic bridge affect palm muting in anyway..

    Yeah. It would prevent the pitch from changing when you rest your palm on the bridge, which happens in some floating trems.

    he newer versions of the x series esp the lower end ones
    the brdge is not so great gives alot of discomfort when playing if ur used to a nicer bridge...but depends wht ur used to
    the older bridges were much better, even tho they didn hav a floyd rose u can still get some....the newer ones only allow u to push down no pulling up
