unusual Washburn models
« on: October 29, 2017, 11:17:57 AM »
There are, however, some Washies that just totally defy my attempts at research...  >:( I've heard that Washburn has put out guitars available in a particular region; e.g., the X-3 seems to have appeared only in Australia. I'll put in the current headscratchers, but anyone is welcome to add to the stack.

Here's a silkscreen block for a "Presidential Series" of guitars --

Though this looks like an XB-400 with gold hardware & Status pickups, it's listed as a KE-1250, & the headstock decal confirms it's a Kip Winger signature model.

And another, in Natural --

Both sellers in Japan, so I figure it's a regional release, & not mentioned in U.S. catalogues.

Out looking for more info on that one, I find reference to the PB-1250 Pat Badger signature bass. Again, only Japan sellers:
