Info about the Falcon
« on: January 05, 2019, 09:21:49 AM »
Hi! I am new here on the Forum and have a Washburn Falcon with serial nr 810550 (or 810530 ?). Does it mean that it was made in 1981? Would be nice to hear if somebody in this nice forum has some more information about this guitar, which has spend the last 15 year in my wardrobe, but  now gets a second chance! :-)

Best regards,
Stefan

Hi Bluebird, here's a link which will provide some info on your Falcon.     http://www.matsumoku.org/models/washburn/washburn.html

I have a couple of Japanese made guitars and if someone offered me a swop my Falcon for a Gibson, I don't think I would take it Truly Great well built guitars.

Cheers.

PS 1981 is the year of manufacture...........

You have a very nice Falcon right there.

Its build in 1981 by Yamaki. It looks all original. I like it a lot. Do you have an original case for it as well?

You can find the catalog for it here:

If you wanna know more about it, feel free to join the Daion/Yamaki/Washburn group on Facebook.
