TK, I asked this> How do you know that it was made in Japan? Do you know which plant it was made? What is the serial #? What is the condition of the frets?

If/When I get a reply I will post it here.

You have to admire the way he describes it, Washburn HB35 Deluxe built in Japan 1988

Makes me wonder if mine is the deluxe model and how the non-deluxe model is different.

Washburn usually puts DL as part of the model number for deluxe. Example- EA20SDL.

TK, here is what the dude says;

I emailed Washburn with the serial number and they told me that
it was
made in Japan. That is all they said and that is all have
said about the
guitar. I am not willing to tell you the serial as I
consider your tone
offensive. I would be quite happy if one of
the other 25 people watching
this guitar were the winner.

-bluebassmanmusic

I fail to see anything offensive, liars hate getting caught though!

Original question; How do you know that it was made in Japan? Do you know which plant it was made? What is the serial #? What is the condition of the frets?

TK, the dude sent me this maybe we all need to shoot an email to Washburn. I don't know if that 8 552 is a full serial or not, the guy got very upset with me and said the condition of the frets are not important, LOL. I am going to shoot an email to Washburn and see what they have to say about mine.


Hi David

This would be a 1988 Japanese Hb35.

Thanks

Too bad he's defensive. Not sure why you're thinking he's lying. I initially thought he's probably operating under the same assumptions we are, but thought MAYBE he had more definitive info.

We just ned to keep that other thread alive and get input and photos from other owners, and we'll boil it down eventually. Honestly, it's a sweet guitar.

His defensive actions and cagey protection of the information requested cause suspicions of untruthfulness. You don't bite off the head of a potential buyer by calling them offensive for asking legit questions.

I agree it is a sweet guitar, I have never heard any bad raps on older HB-35's however there probably are some.

thanks for the heads up CB!

That looks pretty straightforward, totally consistent with other string through guitars, right vintage, serial, features.

In fact, I may just be keeping an eye on it!

That is the same guitar I posted a link to a few weeks ago when we first began seeking serial info. I guess it didn't sell, it is a reserve auction. Don't know how much it got up to on last auction, could check out the link if still active and see though.

TK, it got up to $383 last auction reserve not met

His HB-35 is not getting any bids it is stuck on $159. I think the reserve turns people off, it does me!
