What are the materials in a WA90CE? Top wood, back and sides, nut, saddle, pickup?

If Washburn has followed its routine for model designation, this guitar is of all laminate construction.

Cheers!

When Washburn doesn't brag about every little detail, this usually doesn't indicate high-end. :( A few dealers still have them, for ~$170.

One site says the guitar is all "linden," more commonly called basswood.

The model number is misleading, much like the D-100 -- a useless zero makes it look more valuable. The WA-90 is roughly comparable to the D-9: a decent low-price "entry level" guitar.
M1SDL; XB-400 (natural), XB-400 (burg), XB-500 (teal); X-10, X-33; D46CESP, WCSD30SCE; BT-3, BT-4, BT-6, JB-80; WS-4; WI-66V; Lyon LCT24; OS Autoharps
