I'm confused about the 125th anniversary WSJ125k..

Hey everyone! I'm new here, though I'm not new to washburns. Been playing their acoustics my whole life.

Anyways, I'm a little confused as to whether the WSJ125K has a solid or laminated top. When I bought it from the store I was under the impression that it was solid. Not only did it sound like one (it sounds great btw) the guitar shop owner didn't mention anything about it being laminated after I specifically told him I was looking for something high quality, that would age well. I can't tell by looking at the sound hole because it's tinted, and to be honest I'm not exactly a guitar expert. I've heard people say that tinted or stained usually means it's laminated, but I'm sure that's not always the case.

Of course, when I came home and looked the guitar up on the net, I found the three 125th anniversary models listed on the Washburn site, and the WSJ125 is the only one that doesn't say solid. I started to freak a little, did I just buy a laminated-top guitar for $700?! So I emailed Washburn all but convinced that I'd end up exchanging this one for something else, and I just got a response back from them saying: The WSJ125K is a solid spruce top.

So now I'm confused. Is it or isn't it? Is there a difference between the WSJ125 and the WSJ125K or is the Washburn staff mistaken?

Here are a couple hi-res pics, maybe you guys can see something I don't:

John, the K signifies that it comes with a case.

Murph, I think both of John's posts are just copies of Freegman's original post at the top of this thread.
