Hey gentlemen, I have a Black A20V with Red binding, I believe some call it an A20V BBR. I am wondering how I find the serial number (I took off the 3 back plates and there's no identifying marks in there. Is it under the pickups? or truss rod cover? Anyways I've always loved this guitar as it was my first real guitar after a cheap memphis that my father bought me when I was about 12 (1992ish) and I was also curious what the approx. value is on this thing? As you'll notice the only thing I've changed on the guitar is one of the volume knobs which broke a long time ago, other than that, it is exactly how i purchased it. Any info would be awesome thanks! ;)

The pickups have been wax dipped,as they went microphonic,but other than that,its pretty much as it was, and immaculate too. I dont want to sell it, but would like a valuation, i was told by washburn,and the shop i bought it from that only 40 were made like this,in this colour,with cream binding and gold knobs...Ive never seen another one this colour!

Apols for the first post - just amazed to see a pink A20V! Just discovered this thread and I too have a pink A20V bought with a hard case from a dealer in Camden Town London  around about 1980. I'll get some photos posted asap. I thought I was the only one to own a pink one as I had never seen another.
I bought mine after seeing Whitesnake play Donnington, and I so wanted a red one...
Mine has had a very peaceful life mainly in it's case for the last 20yrs...

I thought I'd plug in a note about my 1984 A20V. I bought it in 1985 and love playing it. It plays very nice and sounds great too. It is  black with black hardware and red trim. It has the Washburn 2001 tremolo. I will try to get some pics on here if I can figure it out.
