Pics are dinky bud. I'm an acoustic player and know next to nothing about the electrics. You could post your question on the electric forum. Folks there will have an answer for you.

Generally, vintage for consumer products refers to 25+ years.

Right you are Rocket....so as I said...if one is to use term in vernacular of the day, it's 25 and or denotes a year of production or Vintage. Ok is the dead horse beat!? LOL

I think that since Washburn had such a long time not producing guitars, I think we have to use the term 'vintage' loosly.



Leader/President/CEO of RYLANDIA.
Also known as the vintage Washburn section

It's pretty much common knowledge that Vintage is 25 years, but this just works better, unless we get another section titled Unique or Unusual instruments from the past or something like that.

We are not Forum Nazis so i think allowing rare or unusual guitars in the Vintage forum is fine.  I can edit the title of the forum on Monday.

Do rare or unusual Washburn players count?  That makes me very special indeed, I'm old as dirt, and about as unusual a person could be without being institutionali,,,, uh, never mind.
