I WILL TRY TO POST PICS OR LINKS TO PHOTOBUCKET.
HAVE NOT PLAYED THIS VERY MUCH LATELY. IS IN NEAR MINT CONDITION. PLAYS WELL EVEN TUNED DOWN A FULL STEP, WHERE I KEEP IT
SET TO REDUCE NECK TENSION AND GO BETTER WITH MY OLDER LOWER VOICE !  HAS THE OLDER PRE-AMP WITH ROTARY KNOBS(EQUIS II)
SO I BELIEVE IT IS PRE 1987 OR SO.  IMPRINT BELOW SOUND HOLE IS USUAL WASHBURN BRAND PLUS "WOODSTOCK-12". LOOKS LIKE
THE 12 STRING JIMMY PAGE USED ON OUTRIDER TOUR & PAGE/PLANTE TOURS IN LATE 80'S EARLY 90'S. TUNERS IMPRINTED WITH A GUITAR LOGO SURROUNDED BY A BELT WHICH HAS THE WORDS "GEORGE WASHBURN" ON IT. BASED ON S/N 289947 I THINK IT MAY BE A BUILD DATE
OF 1982 AND IS AN EA40-12 MODEL.  IN NEAR MINT CONDITION WORTH ABOUT $600 TO $700. IF IT IS A 1982 BUILD, THE CONDITION IS
AMAZING. i AM CONSIDERING SELLING IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED. I DO NOT PLAY IT VERY OFTEN AND DO NOT HAVE AN AMP TO PLUG IT IN TO, WHICH I HAVE READ IS WHERE IT SHINES. HERE IS THE LINK TO PHOTOBUCKET WITH PICS   http://s87.photobucket.com/user/sdwakaturtle/library/

Nice looking Washburn 12 string.  Here is a bit more skinny.

EA40 WOODSTOCK
- single sharp cutaway dreadnought style, mahogany top, oval soundhole, bound body, abalone purfling/rosette, mahogany back/sides/neck, 21-fret bound rosewood fingerboard, rosewood bridge with pearl dot black pins, three-per-side chrome diecast tuners, Washburn 3200/Equis II preamp system, available in Black, Natural, Tobacco Sunburst, White, or Wine Red finish, mfg. 1979-1991.
Grading 100% Excellent Average
N/A $500 - 575 $325 - 375
Last MSR was $1,000.
In the mid-1980s, a spruce top replaced the mahogany top. Circa 1987, EQ300 electronics were introduced (sliders instead of knobs). By 1990, Equis II electronics were being used. This model had birdseye maple back/sides with Natural finish as an option.
EA40 12 Woodstock 12-String - similar to the EA40 Woodstock, except in 12-string configuration and six-per-side tuners, mfg. 1979-1991.
Grading 100% Excellent Average
N/A $525 - 600 $325 - 375
Last MSR was $1,040.  In the mid-1980s, a spruce top replaced the mahogany top. Circa 1987, EQ300 electronics were introduced (sliders instead of knobs). By 1990, Equis II electronics were being used.

Let's put a pic up for the gang to see.

THANKS FOR POSTING THE PIC. I COULD NOT FIGURE IT OUT. DROP n DRAG ?  ONE ASPECT OF THE EA40 DESCRIPTION YOU POSTED THAT
HAS ALWAYS CONFUSED ME IS THAT IT SAYS "DREADNOUGHT STYLE".  I HAVE ALWAYS THOUGHT OF A DREADNOUGHT SHAPE AS BEING
LIKE THAT OF A MARTIN D-28, WHILE THE BODY SHAPE OF THE WOODSTOCK-12 IS MORE AKIN TO THAT OF AN "000" STYLE MARTIN. FOR
EXAMPLE THE MARTIN 00016. IT APPEARS TO HAVE HARDLY BEEN PLAYED. I KEEP IT TUNED DOWN A FULL STEP TO REDUCE STRESS ON THE
NECK. NECK APPEARS STRAIGHT, BODY 100%, ETC. PLAYS FINE. I HAVE NOT HEARD IT PLUGGED IN THOUGH, WHERE, I AM TOLD, IT SOUNDS
BEST. I HAVE SEEN COMMENTS IN THE FORUM THAT THESE ARE HARD TO COME BY. I AM NOT A WASHBURN AFFICIADO PER SE AND WILL CONSIDER 'PASSING IT FORWARD" AT A FAIR PRICE TO A WASHBURN ENTHUSIAST WHO WANTS TO ADD TO HIS/HER COLLECTION. ANYONE
INTERESTED CAN CONTACT ME AT sdwakaturtle@hotmail.com or text me at 603-730-7109.
