You will be sorely missed, Ship! For some time now you have been one of the few members who has a grasp on Washburn's historical workings, not to mention your knowledge regarding the older parlor guitars.

I wish you the best, buddy! Good luck (I had no idea you were experiencing multiple medical issues)!

Cheers to you, Ship!

Ship, sorry to hear about your failing health. I rarely participate in discussion but I rarely let a day go by without coming on site, I have to say that with the dwindling participation, I've always have read your comments. They were
helpful, informative and insightful in the history of Washburn guitars. I know your knowledge will be missed. I wish you good luck with the health problems and my prayers will be with you.  murph

Like Murph above, I don't say a lot here but check the forum pretty much every day for the last few years ... and have always found your contributions informative.

Fair winds, sailor.

Goodbye ship! It's been a while but maybe you still read this. I've been checking this forum occasionally since two years, also digging in old posts, and I very much appreciated all the valuable information and the warm atmosphere around here. You have been very helpful.
I wish all the best for you and your family!

Take it easy and drop in from time to time, Ship.  I love Washburn still and am thankful to have meet you all who make this humble forum great.. all the hard to find information both interesting and obscure being shared.. the randomness of the model names and serial number..  I almost always drop by 2x or 3x a week to read post.. admin please sticky all the historical and informative post that way it will not get lost in the forum. Thanks Ship for all your contributions to the forum and sharing your wit with us.
