Washburn EA10N Festival series 1994
« on: May 22, 2018, 08:48:02 AM »
Good afternoon,

I'm new to the forum

I have a Washburn as the title suggests; someone could tell me what his value could be today?
The serial number is 94030341 and looking in the Washburn archive it should be from '94.
At the time the list price of the guitar is shown at 680 dollars but today I do not know how much it can be.

Thanks very much for any answers

I think the EA10 was the low-end Festival. A great model, but I wouldn't buy one without playing it first, as I've seen some that were almost falling apart -- they were NOT intended to last forever or become "collectible."

And the Festivals aren't really meant to be played acoustically, rather run through the PA system. Most people shopping for an "acoustic/electric" want an electrified acoustic -- a Festival is more like an acoustified electric -- so will pass up an EA.

Looking at the recent marketplace, $150-$200 in Very Good condition, maybe more if it's got a fitted case.

Fjestad's Rule: few guitars will EVER get a value that's even 50% of MSRP (except by inflation). Most Washburns are undervalued, so even THAT can often be halved; in your example, that'd be 25% of $680, or $170.
