Maybe 1986 EA Festival Series
« on: February 26, 2011, 05:16:34 PM »
Looking for information about my guitars, I stumbled across a post on this site from Remnant in 2009 at

This guitar looks very much like the one I have.  However, also on pgs 6 & 7 of a catalog at Vintage Washburn.  Mine has no label inside, however, it has the number 263 on the inside neckbrace, and the number 82936.  It's birds-eye maple and has the most wonderful sound.  Everyone who has ever heard it has complimented me on the sound, and jazz musicians go crazy for it.  Of course, I'm also crazy for it.  I got it used, many years ago, at Guitar Center in L.A.  If anyone has any additional information, I'd be most appreciative.

Incidentally, I'm new to this site, but I love it.  I've learned an awful lot about Washburns today just browsing around here.  A lot of very knowledgable people.  Thanks for the enlightenment, all!

Welcome Fngrpkr, Sounds like a 1988 EA-40.

Welcome to the forum.  If you put up a few pics of your Festival that will probably get you a bit more info.

FWIW I used to have a EA-20.  Eventually sold it.  Wonderful guitar for playing live.  Nice sound amped up.
