year is usually the first two digits of the serial number
looks like yours was built in 2004
country of origin would usually be printed on the back of the headstock

Thank you for trying, but this guitar is probably from the 90'.
She was closed in the gig bag for at least Ten years......

Hi izikalon, reckon your Nuno is a 94 model, if it's a USA model the serial# plus USA will be stamped on the back of the headstock. Otherwise depending on the model N2, N3, N4 etc, it could be either Korean or Japanese built. If you put some pictures up it will help. The link below is free and reasonably easy to understand.

Hi again izikalon, if there's nothing on the back of the headstock it's made in Korea. There are a few that were made in China, but yours is too early for that. So I'd say definately Korean.

Most likely an '01 make. Probably chinese, although i'm not 100% on that, someone else should be along soon enough to help you out.

Sorry Ben. It would be a '91. You know for sure because of the neck plate or the extra tone nob. If it was an '01, the serial number would be 01xxxxx

Made in 2005, if the fret markers are central it's Korean built, if they're to one side of the fretboard, Chinese.

Actually Rad, you are incorrect. It's a '93. Made in Korea.

I'm looking to trade in a Washburn electric guitar s/n is S6127558, it's black with a white line around the the body. About all I know about it is that it's made in Korea. It's excellent shape, but I have no idea what it's worth. I got it in a trade about 6 years ago or so. Can anybody tell me anything about it? Hope so, and thanks!
