HB 35 do i have a japanese model?? Need help
« on: July 22, 2013, 08:21:21 AM »
I'm trying to find out the age of my HB 35, it has the old authentic label inside the f holes that says 'George Washburn, hand crafted in the washburn traditional of Chicago'.  It gives me the model number, but surprisingly it doesn't have a serial number at all! I've looked all over to try and find one somewhere but no luck, and it's not a case of it being faded away either. So I'm curios to know if I have a MIJ model or not!? Any help here would be very much appreciated!!

It's a red colour, that you can still see the word grain in, the headstock doesn't have the trademark symbol as the new ones do,  and tapers inward at the top  rather than bulking outward.

I'll try to upload a pic soon for you all

Cheers

Raudy

Looks exactly like mine, have you found anything out?
