Washburn W500 from the 1970?
« on: February 04, 2019, 08:51:12 AM »
Hmm, someone please let me know if this is a fake guitar or real one? I noticed that in one of the post, the letter W was not bolded in color like mine. I just got this guitar today.

A Beckmen Musical Instruments import (Japan), before Rudy Schlacher bought the Washburn name from them in 1977, so it has nothing to do with either the Lyon & Healy Washburns (1864-1940) or the present company. One of the higher-end Beckmen models, though.
