Offer less.  $90 to $100.  You never want the pawn shop to say yes to your first offer.

 Thanks for the replies, I assumed the K was for Korea.after looking at the washburn archives I think it may be, like a 96 dot inlays and headstock artwork. I will try a lower offer.I gave my D10 SDL away to an old friend and kinda miss it I think it would be a good replacement.

SK = Samick, Korea (referring to factory where guitar was manufactured - Samick Musical Instrument Co., Ltd.)

  Thanks I was pretty sure thats what the SK meant although some of the prefixes who knows.I just went and looked at it again and played and compared it to a Yamaha FG370 they had.The Yamaha sounded a bit better. I am pretty sure the nut and saddle were plastic on the D21S,and that was why.I also noticed a buzz on open E and saw where the action was to low,the bridge angle a little forward.my overall impression on sound was even in need of a setup it had a better lower end than my old D10SDL and probably would sound better after some adjustments.But would never play better I had a great setup on it.So I will hold off I may get it if I pay low enough or buy a D21S if I see one in the future.Both my D26S and D60SW have flat bridges and they are much older 79 and 83.By the way I have really developed a good appreciation for the D26S I put GHS Laurence Juber Signatures on it and it really sounds pure and deep when fingerpicked.it sounds a little dull with Martin Phospher Bronze and too harsh with 80-20s.It took me a while to figure it out. I don't think i would ever sell it.Probably the D60SW first.sounds hard to believe.I paid 200 for the D26S on CL and it is near mint a real tribute to Cedar Mahog combination even if it is laminate back and sides.
