Washburn Electric G5-V
« on: July 02, 2004, 10:36:35 AM »
I have owned this guitar for about 2 years and cannot seem to find anything out about any of this series of guitars, red crackle effect, immaculate condition apart from Floyd Rose Trem Bar missing but inc. hard case

Can anyone tell me anything about this guitar, history, value, ???

The G5V was probobly the most popular model of the Panther Series. They were made from about 1985 to about 1988. Value depends on where you are, and the current trends. Right now 80's metal guitars arent exactly popular..........

I've got the blue crackle G5V, great guitar that has served me well over the years.

However, it is in need of some work and I need some help. I need to replace the 5-way switch and the output jack, but don't know what to get. Anyone know any specific part numbers that'll work from places like All-Parts or Stew-Mac or anything like that?

Anyone know what the body wood is on the G5V? It's heavy, so I'm thinking it is probably maple or something along those lines?

The wood is Maple as far as I am aware,

As far as parts are concerned, I have bought ALL replacement hardware from www.wdmusicproducts.co.uk. They are fast, ultra reliable and know their stuff. Need to check the overseas availability.
