Hey Squint!  Glad you found your way over here!

Yes they are!  I'll put my D52 against many of the high end brand name guitars anytime!  Not only does it sound good but, it plays WERY well too!

Is yours an actual Timber Craft or a Timber Ridge, because as far as I know they are different the D52SW ( Timber Ridge ) is a Dread and the J52SW ( Timber Craft ) is a Jumbo, but both a very sweet guitars and worthy of their stature in Washburns line.Ship

The Washburn catalog lists it as a Timbercraft.  Sure you don't have the models reversed?

No, but I do wonder when they switched over the name at one time the Jumbo's were called Timber Craft and the dreads were known as Timber Ridge, here is a pic of my label. and a pic of my guit.
But both are very nice guitars, aren't they.Ship

Here's the Timbercraft series from the 2007 Washburn Product catalog:





Too bad this series was dropped (with the exception of the D-64 SW Bluegrass....I think it's still being made)....excellent value in solid wood guitars....my personal favorities are the J-56 SW and the B-52 SW.  I believe the J-52 SW and the D-56 SW were also a part of this series. [:)]

You betcha Jim they were also part of the series ( J-52-SW and the D-56SW, I have the J-52SW and it is still one of my favs to get that big sound from her ) ), but according to my older (96) cataloque the Jumbo's { J series } were called Timber Craft and the Dreads were called Timber Ridge along with the folk guitars.
I am still thinking hard about that D-64SW but I am also thinking of Rockets J-58SW and so far I am leaning towards Rockets if I can swing my wife over ( doesn't help that I just bought some more recording equipment though to help boost production )Oh well do I really need another guitar, while being retired, you betcha.Ship...and on a side note Jim I am still pushing hard for them to write that article and do some photo's of your collection, which I believe is the largest single owner collection of any make of guitars in the world ( not owned by a company or employee )incredible is all I have to say

The pickguard, is it original? It looks different from the pictures I see here.

What is your selling price for this guitar?

There were a couple of items I didn't feel were up to standard so I did some upgrades:
Replaced standard chrome Grover tuning machines with 18:1 gold locking Grovers.
Replaced plastic bridge pins/endpin with Rosewood w/Abalone pin set.
Replaced Timbercraft with Cumberland style pickguard.
Replaced standard HSC with deluxe brown leather HSC w/Washburn logo.

Price: $600 US... (buyer ships)
