Robert Palmer – Addicted To Love video – just what guitar is that she’s playing?

Ok – I know most of you don’t care since the ‘lead’ guitarist (the one immediately behind Robert to his right) is so utterly gorgeous that one hardly notices she’s even  carrying an instrument, but it did make me wonder what kind of axe it is. I thought I could discern the Washburn logo but wasn’t sure, so sought some expert help.

Turns out that it is a Washburn – an HM 20V model (no doubt ‘HM’ tag is derived from it looking bitchinly Heavy Metal in shape). I found out with the wondrous help of the Internet – I’d posted the question on thegearpage.net and the next day, some cork sniffing gear geek (and I mean that in a nice way!) had the answer. Here’s the picture from the 1985 Washburn catalogue:

There you go. The full video is here – enjoy!

  1. The HM used in this video is actually the HM-80 and NOT the 20. The HM-80 has the hockey-stick version and it is bolt-on, where the HM-20 is neck-thru and has a pointy end.

    Yes, very confusing. The HM-80 is also very, very rare.

  3. I have the HM20V and It is absolutely amazing. Stays in tune even when breaking a string, and playing it is like driving a highly expensive car. Bought it new in 85, have been offered big money for it but just cant bring myself to part with it.
