Idols seen for sale
« on: June 26, 2016, 03:25:36 PM »
I talked myself out of buying a WI-64DL for $100 + shipping. It needed some TLC, & I'm feeling overwhelmed by projects at the moment.  :(

And on eBay I see a 66 Pro that looks to have had almost no play: correct branded ABS case, hangtags, VCC sticker, even what looks like the protective foam piece on the switch. Asking $399, delivered.

A mere $300 can get you a goldtop.

Not exactly common, yet the second WB-66 I've seen this week, this a 2007.

The only bass in the Idol family, & about equivalent in quality to the WI-64. The reason it's only $150? Store says it's got significant back-bow.

The WI-1800 CM.



Seller's asking $995. With the Washburn numbering system, isn't this essentially a gussied-up WI-18? ??? Seems like a steep price for an Indonesia axe, anyway, but YMMV. ;)
