Roughly ten years ago I got this amazing WP-50 for around $ 100:
Great guitar, perfect axe for me. Best player I ever owned, hands down. Just felt right. Over the years, I swapped most of the hardware, the pups, did some mods on the wiring and so on, and even though the tone was superb to begin with, I still got some little improvements out of it. It still remains my main guitar for gigging and recording.
Now, I wanted to know a bit more about this guitar and found a lot of conflicting info regarding WP-50s in general (MIJ, MIK, some have a pointed headstock, some have inverted-point headstock, placement of the pickup-switch, bolt-on-necks vs. set necks and so on), so I wanted to ask for the knowledgeable people here for some input. Especially since the info in the Washburn Archive is pretty basic and the good folks from customer support never responded to my questions.
Serial number starts with SL#89, so I gather this guitar was built in 1989? Is the SL some sort of factory prefix or what does it mean?
Neck is set, headstock looks like this:
Any info about this guitar would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, guys!
