Seems like a lot 0' guitar (solid woods and all) for not a lot of coin.  Tempted.....

Dear thomas201020,

Hi,

It is a model WD-9SW - SI50505752 is the serial number. It's from a "Solid Tonewood Construction" series years ago. I bought a few, because I really like them. I got them from a guy who bought out a bunch at a NAMM show back then. Really nice guitars.

Thanks for looking!

This was my answer back. A little confusing on numbers but I wanted the year.   I know it is not a 1950.   Tom.  :)

I agree that the 3/4 size might be nice for travel, etc....but if you haven't played a guit with a mahogany/sapele soundboard (these were represented as having true mahogany), you should before you consider buying it.

Hog has a "muted" sound to me.  I played one of these at Pearl when Shiner and CB and Chad were going....Chad's wife had one.  It was a nicely made piece...just sounded "dark" to me.

Before I ever got my first Washburn I was checking out Martins...played a Martin with a hog soundboard and even the least expensive Washburn on the wall sounded better.

Almost certainly a 2005. These were in the Washburn catalog when I got my first Washburn, and that was 2006, I think.

Cheers!

Thanks Y.D.   I knew it was not a 50,  some times these numbers can get confusing.  Tom.  :)
