Woohoo!
We've got our own bit of the forum!

Maybe the lifetime warranty is easier (and cheaper) to manage be because it's on Washburn's own turf?

Brand New - Boxed - LIFETIME WARRANTY!!!
 
This is what Richtone Music one of the Washburn suppliers in the UK used to have just under the model of the guitar and just above the price in their ads. I've only just noticed they've done away with it but if you highlight it then it becomes still visible in their ads. Maybe send them a mail shot just to see why they've suddenly removed it. Somebody must have told them it was no longer a lifetime warranty.
On the dark side of the arguement maybe the cheaper imports from China are not expected to last a lifetime !!!!!
It's a strange world when a guitar Japanese made in the eighties is still sought after and recognized as a lifetime companion and yet a guitar made today is only guaranteed for a year.

The GS1 looks nice, need some strings and pegs on that GS2 quicktime mate!  I think youve finished off the headstock pretty well, could have been alot worse!

Welcome TREEROOT,
just had a quick visit to your store, nice to see hand made saddles and nuts there, always worth knowing a stockist of bone and lignum vitae in the UK.
