Is this the right place to talk about the D21S?
« on: March 12, 2013, 05:16:20 PM »
Hi,

Just purchased my second Washburn, a D21S, #950658. It needs a bit of work on the saddle, a set up probably with new strings to play well, but it is in pretty good shape overall and it felt good in my hands. For a modal that had just been sitting in someone's closet for 10 years it still played ok, and I saw it had good potential to get back up to steam. I got it for 75.00. Any thoughts about the guitar?

That shold be a pretty good buy.  Here is some info on your Washie.

Grading 100% Excellent Average
$450 $275 - 325 $150 - 200
Last MSR was $600.
In 1992, Tobacco Sunburst finish was disc

Dating your guitar is problematic as it was made over a long period of time and the serial number system is not straightforward or consistent.  The first number or the first and second numbers are the year of manufacture indicator.   So, it could be 1989, 1999 or 1995.
