Washburn D-14-AB???
« on: June 29, 2018, 08:44:38 PM »
I did search in the whole Washburn series in the website looking for this D-14-AB and couldnt find no referance. Could some one help understand what means AB? I would like to know if its a solid top or a laminate top... its a dread, acoustic.

These pop up once in a while --

With a low model number, it probably started life as a "beginner" guitar; Blue Book says retail price was $350 its last year (1992).

The last two letters are probably for color; I'd guess Amber Brown.

Unless there's an "-S-" after the model number, it's very unlikely to have a solid-wood top.

The D15S was sold 1998-2000. Blue Book puts final retail at $599, & value at maybe $500 in perfect condition, or about $350 in Excellent.

The D-14 was pretty much replaced by the D-10; a D-10S (spruce top) retailed for $350l, & the current WLD10S has a street price of $299 new.

I recently found a Washburn D 14AB. I believe it is MIJ judging by the head stock, possibly in the Yamaki plant. This one has the M#rtin style head stock and is in excellent shape. Laminate body through out but it sounds and play as nice a many solid top guitars I've played.
