I need HELP !!!!
« on: August 17, 2008, 11:56:20 AM »
I recently bought a guitar for really cheap from some guy on craigslist.  He didn't know what type of guitar it is and there are absolutely no logos, serial numbers, or any insignia at all.  I'm guessing it's been refinished.

I posted it on craigslist for help on what it may be and a guy told me it was a washburn.  He wrote:  I think its a g-2v,...............only washburn in the early 80's had guitars with red fret markers & red binding,it was their own stlye......THAT IS A WASBURN!!!! no dought about it.............& those sell for like 500.00 on ebay..........as fare as the markings,I have no idea? the guitar might have been refinished.........but make no mistake that is a Washburn 100%

So can anyone else help confirm that this guitar is a Washburn G-2V?  Here are a few pictures of it:

Hi AJ, i'm no expert (one'll come along) but that looks entirely different from my G-2V. Body shape, headstock and my 87 model has a 5 way switch. Could be what the folk on here call a Crossover Model early in the series. Hey, nice find though, how's she sound ?

That would be extremely helpful.  i can't really find any guitars that look like it on the web so far.
