Washburn wp 100
« on: May 08, 2017, 09:23:24 AM »
Hi,
I have a washburn wp 100 les paul copy, and am thinking of selling it. There is so much different info. on this guitar, that I don't know what to believe.
I know that it is rare, and some say made in japan, and there is also info. that  says it was made in the washburn custom shop.Any info. that people might have would be appreciated . Also I would just as soon sell it to a washburn collector, who would appreciate it,
Thanks

From the Classic series (later Tour), 1987-1991. Well-regarded guitars, with the WP-100 being top-line. Original MSRP $1,299. Only belatedly developed interest from players, as they realized it's not some mere LP clone.

The whole "where was it made" thing is largely irrelevant. Anyone who knows nothing of Washburn in general (let alone this model) will look only at the "MIJ" or "USA" part... & lowball you. Someone who recognizes how good the WP is will know what it's worth.

Fjestad's Rule is that very few guitars will ever be worth 50% of their MSRP. This is one of the exceptions, & in 95% shape could be worth $650+.
