I don't think of the G2-V as a Vintage instrument, age not withstanding. Now if you see a '56 Kay, well, ok.... Vintage. Or a 1920's anything.
My G2-V seems to be an el-cheapo that has somehow acquired status among some people. As I understand it, this model was maybe retailed at $400.00 dollars, so not really an expensive item. I have not seen much data on the Wonderbar, as Washburn has said it does not HAVE much, other than the PDF's they forwarded. As for the guitar itself, I'm still looking to find out more, but so far, all I have been able to learn is very basic and personal opinion orientated comments.
Glue pots? Reminds me of the cute chick in first grade that begged to be the runner so she could get first crack at the warm horse based paste....that kid hoarfed it!

Dude...it was WAY before Lapage'...it would come in huge tubs, and the janitor would have to schlep it into
individual containers to be picked up by the glue person (future politicians no doubt). It was lumpy, and smelled.
Cindy ( yes I remember her name...)said it tasted like mint.
On a more topical note, I sent you some PDF's from Washburn I received a few min.go related to G series electrics...
