Help identifying this 1987 Washburn (WP50-ish) !
« on: July 28, 2017, 08:47:16 AM »

"Old" Washburn guitars are tricky because they are not well documented, sometimes built in Japan, sometimes in Korea by Samick, a lot of contradictory information on the net...not much discussed of on forums.

So there is this Les Paul replica with probaby a 1987 serial, looks like a WP 50, but it has a bolt on  neck, the toggle at the right place but the more modern headstock (not the ones with a v shaped cut at the top).

The problem is that I understood that WP are made from 89, first in Japan (with the toggle alone at the top and V HS) then in Korea (with the toggle moved with the knobs) and all with set necks...

A prototype ? Maybe...

Any help appreciated !
