Why is this called Birdseye? Is that a type of wood, or is that for the little patterns in the wood. It is a real beauty, thats for sure.  Tom.

Bird's eye maple even washburn can't peg

Hi Guys

I have two of these Washburn EA30 Guitars both almost the same and both with birds eye maple finish which is an all round finish apart from the neck. I purchased one about 1990 ish and the other about 3 weeks ago. The first one was a replacement for one which I brought in Winchester which was red. That was a shop display guitar I paid 685 pounds for it and shortly after the frets began to lift, so the shop keeper ordered me a new one to replace it. The new one was natural bird’s eye maple. I loved it so much I brought another from a seller on eBay which is in near perfect condition for 300 pounds. Both of my EA30 S has equis electrics but I mainly use them for acoustic work only. I should say I am a closet guitarist but what the heck I just love strumming away. I will show some pic’s later if anyone is that interested. I just found your forum when I was trying to find out how rare my guitars are. Bill

Not sure if this thread is still active...
I'm new to this forum.

My first and only guitar ever purchased was exactly the same as the one in this post: Washburn EA 40 rosewood neck, spruce top, birdseye maple sides and back. Bought at Guitar Center in Chicago (Arlington Heights).  I remember buying it in college so I think that was 1988, latest would have been 1989.  Still own it 25 years later.  Too bad I don't play it much.  Hopefully one of my kids will pick it up.

So yes, that guitar is a late 80's Washburn EA40.

I bought this birds eye maple Washburn accoustic/electric EA40 brand new after my divorce in '88. I was so proud of myself, my first big purchase all by myself but I sold it when I was a struggling single mother a little over 10 years later. Wish I'd never sold it, I loved that guitar!
