USA Custom Shop Washburn WV 540
« on: May 15, 2012, 05:42:46 PM »
Hi:
I recently traded my PRS CE 24 for a USA Custom Shop Washburn WV 540 in matte black from a guy in NYC. Its the model that usually comes in white with the blood splatter finish (discontinued Scott Ian-Anthrax) but this is matte black. I have looked everywhere and can't find another like it anywhere. Guitar has  Mahogany body, Mahogany set neck, Carbon Glass Epoxy Composite,  Original Floyd Rose bridge, Seymour Duncan  El Diablo  pickups, Single tone & single volume control, Three way pickup selector, Grover tuners, Buzz Feiten Tuning System, Built in the USA Custom Shop. Does anybody have any idea  or info on how many of these were ever produced especially in this colorand how much this guitar would cost? If anyone has another one that they are willing to part with please let me know. Any and all info on this model is greatly appreciated. This is by far the greatest guitar I have ever owned and played!! Also is the Washburn Custom Shop still up and running?

Thanks
George

Here's 10 pictures of it that I have uploaded to photobucket.

Washburn sold all of their USA stock with matte finish after the Jam take over of US Music, as part of
stopping USA guitar production.
the prices were significantly lower than usual production models.

try checking with Washburn customer service, they might have more info on production numbers
