HB35 serial number
« on: December 07, 2018, 09:46:17 PM »
Hey Everyone! Today I found an HB35 hiding in the corner of the used section of guitar center and fell in love with the neck and the way she plays. I don't know much at all about these guitars but I did some digging and I think this one is one from the 1980's however I'm not entirely sure. The serial number is 101 and I've read that the Washburn serial numbers can be kind of difficult to decipher haha. I'm pretty dead set on picking her up and any insight/info on where/what year she might be made in is greatly appreciated, Thanks!

Well, if you are not just being coy :)...

If a Washburn has less than seven digits in the serial number, I suspect Japan build. Is that num,ber on a paper tag? Help me out here, Team Washie, but would that not be a Gen One HB35?

Now, avoid overmuch excitement. :o Great guitars from Nippon, but not worth thousands of $$$ or anything. Buy to play.

What type of bridge is it? Is it a string through the body design?
