I just got done talking to my inside sales rep from Washburn.  He told me that as of right now these guitars are a limited release.   They are not part of a series.  They are just a great USA made guitar at an amazing price!

Aren't they blowing out all the unused Face Eraser bodies on those?
 How do they stack up to the Grover Jackson era mid 90's USA MG's? I own 6 USA MG's none are hardtails so---.

This is a new model, not a closeout model.  Right now Washburn just did a limited run for now.  The price is right for a USA made guitar that is for sure!  I would think they match up very well to the Grover Jackson guitars of the 80's.

Here is the picture of the natural:

Thanks bro 4 of these are from 1995 ( Starting third from the left MG 120 and 122 maple top over mahogany Artist series MG 102 and the 100 laying down from the swamp ash Pro series )they only used that particular neck profile for around a year and a half in 95-96.
I wish they still made these guitars!
