New WI-568
« on: May 04, 2012, 05:44:31 PM »
Is there anyway I can have my serial number looked up so I can have some background on my guitar ?  for example   0603100 would mean manufactured in June of 2003 and it's the 100th one?

On 7 numbers, the first number is the year.  On 8 numbers the first two numbers are the year. Almost all the time.  Tom.   :)

Ok. That kinda helps. Can anybody tell me exactly how the serials are coded ? Also, does anybody from washburn know what the neck measurements and radius is ? Were they standard on this guitar or are some different that others ? This neck appears to be a compound radius.

There is not much more to tell.  There are a few threads on here, about decodeing numbers.  They will tell you what I just did. Most times you look at guitars , and whats on them. Then go to Washburn dot com,  History,  and look at your years and figure out what one you are. Now if you post a picture, there are guys who can tell you about your guitar by looking at it.  hope this is a little more helpful.  Tom.   :)
