FYI-Rare WG2S Ltd. Ed.+ case on Ebay, great price
« on: October 09, 2011, 02:40:03 PM »
Just bought and should next week receive a hard-to-find WG2S Limited Edition, an exceptional little 0 body git.

For anyone interested, a store in Canada is selling them on Ebay at fantastic prices. Here are some forum threads on the WG2S:

From what I've been able to gather they were made about 10 years ago and are about as easy to find as abalone encrusted hen's teeth. They're wonderfully playable (I've played one), have a nice small body sound and, cosmetically and feature wise, they offer a beautiful solid cedar top with real abalone purfling and rosette, psychedelic abalone headstock details, striking (laminate) quilted ash back and sides, and gold Grover 18:1 tuners.

Not sure what the forum policy is on talking prices, but I doubt it matters in this case given that these guitars are older and next to impossible to find. The one on Ebay comes with a beautiful little blue, hardshell case with plush lining and gold Washburn on it, for $349. Believe it or not, I got mine with the case for significantly less than that, even though it's new, in the sense not having a previous owner, and in perfect shape. Can't wait to get it. As well, I think the company might have another one still, without the case, for around $200 because I nearly bought that one.
 
Also, for anyone who has wanted a WG4S -- same design and features as the WG2S, but Grand Concert 00 or 000 size -- there's one of those available 'for a song', but it doesn't come with a funky blue hardshell case.

Cheers . . .
