Some information please
« on: December 13, 2016, 12:49:51 PM »
Hey guys!
I recently aquired a a Washburn Mercury Series guitar MG440W-TB it has a HSH set up with a Washburn under licence 600s Floyd Rose Trem and locking nut.
the truss rod is accessible from the body and not from the headstock...
i'm trying to find some information about the guitar but its really difficult... i think it was mad in 1993 in Japan ( the floyd is stamped " made in Japan " ) but im not sure.
the s/n is 3 120378
thanks in advance!
Sol good

Hello Sol good,

I'm not an expert but this is what i found - http://forums.washburn.com/index.php?topic=15489.0

It's either Padauk wood stained or Ash wood stained.. I believe it is either made in Korea or Indonesia by Samick.. brief history of Samick, so you will get some knowledge when they moved production from Korea to Indonesia.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samick

You could always write Washburn customer support for assistance. - http://www.washburn.com/info/contact/

Thanks Ric,
 
i tried contacting customer support but they didn't answer my mail..

the guitar that you linked me is very similar to mine but with one big difference-- the truss rod access location.

i think this may be an important feature that may help to determine that guitar history.

if anyone has any information i'll appreciate it.

thanks!

Hey Tony,
I am trying to find out as much as i can...
Year and place of manufacture for example.. monetary value... and why is it so hard to find info about this guitar.
Sorry for not responding sooner,
Sol,

Since you're so readily willing to be an abject jackass, I guess you'll have to wait for all the other members to answer your oh-so-original questions.
