My Washburn D-20s/n
« on: November 01, 2015, 06:55:56 PM »
My Washburn D-20s/n, solid spruce top, maple back & sides, bought new 1989, built 1988 according to serial number.
It's my first own guitar, payed with the money from a summer job when I was 16.
The frets are very worn, I think of getting them fixed.
I love her sound and it looks beautiful!
I installed a tusq saddle recently and it sounds even better.

Here are some pictures from the couch:  ;D

The only thing better than seeing a nice new guitar, is looking at an older one that's been well loved and played throughout its life. Nice Guitfiddles man!!

That's very nice. I hope to get one like this soon.
