Can't identify this Washburn electric by its serial number
« on: November 18, 2018, 07:18:10 PM »
Does anyone know how to decipher this serial number - M11012393?
There are no serial #'s starting with an M in any source that I can find.
I think it is a Washburn WISTD TSB SNGL CUT Electric Guitar Tobacco Sunburst.
The M serial number makes me wonder if it from the Japanese factory.
Also I have no idea what the year is buried in the serial #.

It's a long enough number that my first guess would be January 2011. Very unlikely (not impossible) to be MIJ, but the "M" is more likely a China factory code than Matsumoku (which shut down in 1987).
