Stepdad's old Washburn acoustic, any info?
« on: February 11, 2017, 08:32:47 PM »
My stepdad got this guitar off a neighbor when he was a kid, and we've never been as to find much information about it. Does anybody here have an idea? Serial #: 940 / Style #: W-200

Remember, though, these are Beckman guitars, & have absolutely nothing to do with the present company.

I've heard good things, if not wildly enthusiastic. The W-200 is a beginner guitar, roughly comparable to the current WD-10. It's the upper-end models (280, 300, 500, 600) that get people all excited.
