Any information would help
« on: June 05, 2012, 07:31:34 PM »
Hey all, I hope your days are going well  :)

I am getting ready to take my Washburn in for repair (bridge replacement) and decided to finally try to figure out what model it is.  I bought it from my guitar instruction back in 1985 (and by '85 I mean somewhere between 1984-1986) Kelly Joe Phelps; if you've never heard him you should do yourself a favor and check him out on Youtube.  Anyway, I bought it from him, don't remember how much, but I seem to remember him saying something about it being a proto-type.  I have searched through A TON of information and have come up empty.  There is no sticker on the inside where it would state the model number/serial number, which seems to support the proto-type recollection.  I'm wanting to see if I can figure out about what it is worth so I can add it to my insurance.  I much appreciate any help on this, thanks.

OK, I see the pictures didn't come through.  I'm trying to fix that :-)

Welcome to the forum.  Here is a pic from the 1984 catalog, thanks to Jim Smiths collection.  Your guitar appears to be the one on the lower right.

If I'm right, then your guitar has a value of about $350.

Thank you very much and that certainly does seem to be it.  I can't wait to get it fixed and play it again, sounds amazing!

Thanks again,
