Could also be an EA40.  It appears to have birds eye maple back and sides.  Washburn switched to birds eye on this model in the late 80's/1990.

Should be a model number and/or serial number imprinted inside the guitar.  On the back, or neck block.

I don´t have the number, cause I have to buy it to see. $230 I think is a good price. The seller told me, that this guitar is about 25yrs old.

There is a N° 82192 on the interior heel and there is N° 125 on the barrier.
I think its an EA 40. Made in Japan?Korea?USA?

Keel is right....it's an EA-40.  Probably made in Japan, not made in the USA.

Today my washburn has arrived. Its sooo beauty. Solid spruce top, solid birds eye maple on sides and back.
EQ 300 is mounted. Is it really a EA40?
The pics show the numbers inside.







Who can say, what this numbers say? Build in 1982??

I don't think any Festivals were made with solid backs and sides. Tops, yes.

Very nice.  Looks to be in great shape.  Well done.

FWIW even though the grain of the wood for the sides looks the same inside and out, it's laminate.  Not a bad thing, but it's laminate.
