How about the AB10 accoustic electric bass if I just ordered one, will it be USA or import, and at some point did the complaints about the ACTION on the AB10 get corrected for "fresh out of the box" models like the one I am expecting delivery on within a week from now (4/16/13)

Welcome. I have not read anywhere about this Bass being made in USA, I think just a few high end guitars are US made. The current catalog is on here, and the answer should be there.  Also Washburn.com  , should have your answer.  Tom.  :)  Hum,  it don't say, sorry.  http://www.washburn.com/products/basses/acoustic/ab10.php      also try     http://www.washburn.com/media/catalog.php     I downloaded it on my Google Nexus 7, would not download on my pc.  2013 catalog does not say were it is from.  page 35.

Current models made in the USA are signified by a U.S. flag on the Website.

 This thread is a real help for people that are not experts on the older Washburn acoustics, and will probably prevent the likes of myself from being ripped off. Think I may keep eyes peeled for one of the superior pre 96 models.
Thanks

I have a Washburn Cumberland Acoustic/electric, model J28SDL, S/N G03041136.  Made in China.  I am hoping to learn approx how old it is and if it is a quality guitar.  Tunes and sounds great, has Grover tuners. Can you help me with some information on this instrument?
Thanks,
Rich Benedict

I have a friend's D100B that he would like to sell. I can't find any info on what he has or what it's worth. Not good condition but sounds good to me. What if it was in good condition? SN: G00020341

I was told the D-100 is just a D-10 series made for Musician's Friend & maybe other big retailers. The "-B" suffix means it's black, of course. All laminate (including the "slect spruce" top).

A reliable low-end acoustic guitar for many years. Worth less than $100 in Very Good shape -- not due to quality but because that market segment is "overserved" -- but sellers keep asking $150-$200 because they're aware buyers don't know the difference between a D10 & a D-10S. ::)

Let me clarify, though. I am in the minority, a fan of all-laminate acoustic guitars. These don't need as much TLC as a "real wood" guitar, & therefore tend to be much more sensible for gigs, jams, all-around play. Some sound like cheap guitars, some sing like angels. If it sounds good & plays well, it will likely stay that way for many years.

What is so wrong with the quality of Imported Guitar since 2001?
Is this a Problem of all manufacturers like China etc. Or are some netter than other countries?WCVYXW
