Washburn WG2S UK Limited Edition
« on: July 04, 2005, 05:29:50 PM »
Hi,

I have a Washburn WG2S which I understand to be limited to 200 here in the UK.  Does anybody else have one of these guitars (2000 made worldwide I believe with 2 different woods for the front face?)?

Ive been looking since I bought the guitar 3 years ago and only ever found 1 article, and someone recently selling one on ebay in the UK.

Any information would be really welcomed.  It'd be great to hear from anyone with the same guitar, especially of the different wood finish.  (Not overly sure what mine is - Ive been playing since I was 14 so I should have more of an idea about these things...)

Cheers

Matt

Hi Matt,

I wonder if you still have your Washburn WG2S? As I see you posted a while ago now. I have one too. Purchased from a friend three years ago. Lovely to look at and lovely to play. I don't know if you have found out by now that it was a limited edition of 2,000 and only 200 came to the UK. It is cedar top and ash back and sides.

It's brought up once in awhile.

Now it's been resurrected, some points of clarification...

I believe with 2 different woods for the front face?
No. It's a cedar top.

Another thread says it's a parlor-size guitar. No, it isn't.

A run of 2,000 isn't particularly "limited," much less rare. As Jim Smith Jr has stated, many Washburn models (particularly acoustics) were ordered in runs of only 200 units, & it wasn't unusual that a first run was also the last.

By ordering a run of 2,000, Washburn bets it can get "collectors" (flippers, really) to snap 'em up in hopes of getting rich in a few years, thus greatly reducing Washburn's marketing costs & eliminating need for warehousing, so further increasing profit margin. The tactic was used annually in the '90s with the "LTD" series. This "hit & run" approach also means the models weren't in the annual catalogues, & almost never on published price lists. Therefore, few outsiders have retrospective access to any specs.

Good guitars? Certainly. But, IME, the only people who trumpet the "rarity" of these guitars are hoping to inflate the price they get

Thank for your writting! It is easy to understand and detailed. I feel it is interesting. I have read many other articles about the same subject, but your article has given me a lot of useful information.
