HB-35S Serial Number
« on: April 20, 2006, 06:41:09 AM »
I just puchased a red HB-35S with gold hardware.  Nice guitar!
The serial number is on the back of the HeadStock and is S5067941.

Can anyone tell me the the year and origin of manufacture?

Thanks,

Dennis

While we don't have a serialized database on record from the era.

I'd say it's pretty safe to say it's a 1995 model, made in Korea.

It's a 1995 model.  There were no HB35S's made in 2005, and the HB35's made in 2005 were manufactured in China.  The S denotes samick which was the factory in Korea we used.

Thanks,

Thank you all for your input.

Looks like I have a 1995 HB-35S and I play it out on a gig tonight.

I appreciate everyone's help!

I've been out of town so I'm getting in a little late, but based on things I have learned from Washburn and from the experts on this board, it is 1995, Korean-made by Samick.

And it's nice to see some Washburn folks on here from time to time, BUT... it looks like some of them need to study up a little on what IS known about their serial numbers!
