Diamond plate Dime Bag for sale.
« on: July 26, 2012, 02:47:47 PM »
I have a diamond plate dime which due to my ever growing family has become a luxury item. I bought it new 10 years ago hoping to achieve greatness. After the birth of my youngest, priorities obviously had to change and practice on the axe became impossible. The dime went back into the hard shell case where it has spent the majority of it's 10 life. I'm not saying that this guitar is in showroom condition but I'll challenge anyone to find a better example of the great Dime's model of choice before his untimely death. Imported from the "US of A" Chicago custom shop this truly is a rare instrument and will provied the lucky buyer with all they would expect in a signature series Dime Bag. I have searched the web for information on this model and have found very little. The information I have read suggests that this is one of only 25 in the world. I am willing to ship this world wide but as this is a large heavy item I will have to add the shipping cost to the price of the guitar and payments will have to clear before dispatch. I'm looking for bids in the region of £3,000. Please feel free to email any questions you have. As I have had difficulty adding pictures from my so called smart phone, these will be posted on my return to work tomorrow.

Cheers

Andy.

There is more than 25 in the world but that would be a series of 25

There are three different Diamondplate models out there.. The first run of 14 that fetches the most $$$, it is the bulkiest.. The second run is alittle skinnier and I believe there are 50 made (but I'm not sure).. The third run is called the anorexic run.. It is the skinniest of them all (one was recently on eBay and sold for $2501)

The diamond plate goes all the way to the edge of the body before tapering off. The Washburn logo on the head stock is white writing on a black background. The name plate it's self is made out of plastic.  :D

By chance do you have a leather strap with it?

Is there a serial number or anything? You could get it decoded on the website or ask about it on the washburn website? That might tell you a bit about it.
