I don't know if it was on ebay.  I can say $900 for a custom shop usa guitar is pretty cheap.  It needed a ton of TLC but I have it dialed in and it kills,  don't think I would let it go for 900 lmao.

also the build year was 2008 and in 09 Washburn came out with the George Lynch Outlaw acoustics so I am wondering if this was planned to be a part of something like that,  I am in the industry so I know projects get started and left for dead all the time, just wondering what the plan was for this guitar

Certainly an oddity! Very strange that they'd float an entire sub-brand for it, though, given Lyon -- my LCT24 is surprisingly well-made -- or Oscar Schmidt, especially with delights like the OE20 Serpentine.

Maybe this was a one-off or short-run demo. Are stamped #s typical for Chicago Washies?

The stamped (& kinda juvenile, IMO) logo seems weird for an axe that shows flashes of intentional quality -- 18-1 Grovers, the Rose rig, "random" dots.

The trussrod cover does look a little like a rounded-off Jackson-era shape.

All in all, a sweet find.

Nice find...  Sort of reminds me of a (hot rodded) nuno electric guitar with the reverse headstock.   No idea about it or specs but sure is nice looking..  Is the Floyd Rose original made in Germany or Washburn Floyd Rose license trem?

They were made in 2008 only. I was told by upper mgmt that it has a single JB and a licenced FR. 500 were ordered by a shop in San Diego California but something happened and they reduced the order to only 100 and paid a lot more for each guitar that was supposed to have an original price tag of $859-(with bag, $129 extra for hsc.) but since they reduced the order, the price was higher. I saw a picture of one and I like the"bullet" abd bullet holes on the fretboard. Great guitar designed by George Lynch and Washburn.
