Help Identify My Washburn!
« on: June 18, 2017, 01:36:07 PM »
So I have this V-style washburn, sn K850700, model FV-5V, and Ive tried to research it but to no success. What I gathered is that it could be an 85 made in japan. If anybody knows more about it i'm desperately eager to hear!

Not a whole lot of info to be had about that particular model. Seems less common than its line mates FV-2V, FV-10V, FV-20V.

If it's got the tapered 3-3 headstock, it's probably Japan, Matsumoku in fact. But I think the FVs reappeared later with a hockey-stick head, which is likely Korea.
