2008 models did not have pointy headstock. Look here: http://www.washburn.com/media/pdfs/catalogs/Washburn2008Catalog.pdf

Ok but mine has ebony fretboard and no binding and the one resembling it in catalog is rosewood fb w binding. There were a couple signed pictures in case from boogie street from Nick Catonese whatever that means

I apologize for typo in my previous post. Your guitar looks like modified 2008 WI566 model. Could have been custom order, who knows. Sorry I was not able to help more.
