Native American Series , Symbols
« on: March 02, 2008, 09:14:55 AM »
Does anyone know which symbols are on the headstock of each guitar ?  I know the Cheyenne has a head dress , but what about the Navajo , Savannah , Comanche , and Apache ?  Are there any other Native American Series ?  Thanks  Red

Hey Red, this is the best I can do for you
Cherokee, has a pearl and abalone inlay of two teathers crossed at the bottom.
Apache, has a singular Abalone feather, with a single 12th fret marker
Comanche,has a singular pearlized dot with featheres draping off both sides
Cheyenne, has the full head dress
Savannah has the wheat stock bundle
As for the Navajo well I have never really seen one, so I am afraid I can't tell you anything there.louis

I am working from a 96 Catalogue, as to jwalter I do not know him and I have mixed feelings as to him re-posting all of that,so I will not bother to voice anything more on that.louis...but again thank you my catalogue doesn't say what the symbols are for the savannah or Comanche and I haven't found a Navajo yet, but will look later.

Thanks Ship , I'm not sure what Magoo is talking about ? ? I would like to contact Washburn and get a definitive answer on the Native American Series . For many of the Q's that have been posted regarding these guitars , such as ; what do different serial #'s indicate , where  each - and how many of each at each location - were made ,  who made all , or just a portion , and prototypes ??????  The more I read here the more confused I get .  Thank you really , for all help !

There were other posts here Red, that have been deleted by the posters, so I know it looks funny, as to the Native series, well that one seems to go around and around, depending on who you ask, I know some where really sought after and a few of the made by Dana had a very small amounts made, as  to the prototypes well good luck it would be nice to get some sort of definetive answer, I sure hope some says something.louis
As for Washburn you can contact browndog,customer service, a really great guy to work with and he'll find you as many of the answers as he can.

Use the search function at the top right. Navajo returns quite a number of threads with detailed info.  It's not difficult to find out that most reports the Navajo having a headdress, but some without headstock symbol... Start with these:
