What is this?
« on: July 06, 2014, 09:26:02 AM »
Hi I'm about to buy an washburn guitar in a second hand auction site in sweden, but I dont know what washburn it is I'm looking at:

Can somebody help me? I Think it is the model Tabu, but what is that extra switch at the tone Control? Kill switch/coil tap/sustainer? What can it be?

Hi, and welcome to the Forum.
looks like a Wing Series Raven Model from the 80s, also looks like a few mods have taken place. the Raven had Four knobs, two tone, two volume.
I've put a link to a very good site on the Wing Series below, check it out and decide what model it is. On a lot of the Raven models (Although not all were affected ) the neck seemed to slip down and bend or break the pup surround, the surround on the guitar shown seems to indicate this small defect. Any way check out>>>>>>>>>> http://www.matsumoku.org/models/washburn/wing/wing.html

yikes, how long has it been partially strung is my concern... that neck could be more warped than timothy leary.
