Hey floyde!  [:D]

To the best of my knowledge (and a semi-educated guess thrown in), I'd say you've got a laminated Spruce top with laminated Mahogony back and sides.  If there's an S after the model number, it's a solid top.  The B is probably a black finish?

If you're happy with it, a trip to your local Tech for a setup can make it a whole lot easier to play.  Here in the states, a setup runs anywhere from $45 to $60 (US).

If you opt for an upgraded instrument, hopefully another Washburn, just be sure that you get a solid top.  As you play the instrument and it ages, the top opens up and the sound improves.  [:p]

Have fun and enjoy!  [8D]
