You're obviously not happy with it, so if I were you, I'd send it back, pronto!

Good luck with it, man.

Hi Michael.
These guitars are supposed to have a distressed (aged) finish, but they're not supposed to be cracked.  Those pictures look like cracks to me.  I think you did the right thing - hopefully the seller will take it back.  Keep us posted.

Hey, when you get a chance, can you share some pictures of your 1906 parlor?

Michael, just curious, this 'crack', does it show up on the inside?  It is a solid wood model, right?  I would think an actual repair might go all the way through the side, rather then a surface distressing..... Digital Piano

A bit of excessive aggression in the Washburn distressing department[?]


It actually fits into my theory concerning all of the distressing.  I believe that instruments that are damaged during the course of manufacturing and can't be sold as first grade instruments are being beat up further and sold as distressed.  Why reject it and take a loss on the labor an materials to date in the instruments' life when a few more whacks will maintain the profit levels.

Your crack does look cool in the distressed category.  Not near the effect of the one on my beloved Sovereigns' lower bout----but that one came during a natural distressing moment.


If it's got tuners, tits, or tires----it's gonna cost you.

Nick is the biggest help we get on the Forum from an actual Wshburn employee.

You might PM him.  His user name is WB-Nick.

sorry i haven't been around much.  I've been doing alot of traveling.  No, a repaired crack is not part of the distressing.

Sure... Ockham's razor:
The seller lied to you and ripped you off. Get your money back before it's too late.
