Tell Me about My D-28 S/N
« on: June 16, 2007, 01:07:11 PM »
Hey folks, I recently accquired a Washburn D-28 S/N. I bought it at a pawnshop for $90 used, but in fantastic condition, I could not get it out of my hands when I tried it out. I can't tell if this is a recently manufactured guitar or an older one that was barely played. I noticed the bridge had started to come up, so I put some money into it and had my luthier/repairman friend reglue it and setup the guitar. This guitar looks like a Martin D-28 Herringbone but with a D-35 3-piece back. The body wood is what I am curious about. It has been identified by Harmony Central owners and in other text as rosewood, but it really does not look like that to me. It has the color of contrasting shades of brown as does rosewood but the grain pattern is wrong (to me) this pattern almost looks almost like ash. Any help with this? BTW this guitar plays and sounds great; even with dead strings, this guitar is rich with tone and sustain. The serial number is 9403073 if this helps

Welcome!

And here's a picture of Pike for people who want to put a face to the name.

They had to feed him some stuff to stop him absorbing all his Washburn guitar knowledge.

Thanks for the info Pike (my name is actually Joe) The specs you gave me line up exactly with what I have- still it does not look like any Indian rosewood I have seen. It actually looks kinda like Brazillian (we know it isn't that, but possibly a veneer, or another wood that looks like it) Sorry I don't have a camera to take a photo! thanks again

Dear Forum members,
My Washburn has been stolen, which I am very disappointed about.

I'm pretty sure it was a 1988 Washburn D28 S/N bought for around 5 or 600 dollars , can anybody give me an idea of what an equivalent new Washburn guitar would be.  Though it will be hard to replace.
Here is a picture.
