That sign (No=) means number (I think it's numero, from french, or maybe italian).

I have a Woodstock identical to the red one. I bought it new and registered it in 1982. I was told at the time it was USA made all mahogany and the first of the new cutaway line from Washburn. My model number is different. The registration card says it is a EA40W-1 with a red star stamped next to it. Inside the guitar it says WOODSTOCK with a red star stamped on it. I haven't played it for almost 15 years.I was going to send it in to Washburn for a belly and bridge problem, but now Washburn has told me so many different stories about the guitar I don't wont them to get it back and have them replace it with a lesser model. I just had a JLD Bridge System put in by the designer (vintage model) and WOW did it boost the sound and fix the belly. Best thing I ever did for this guitar.

Hey Muehlenbauer, awesome 12 string. I have that exact finish Woodstock in a 6 string. The pots are GONE on mine and are a current project to replace. Looks like a B500KO (500kU?) and B1m02(?). Any who...nice guitar.

Hi guys I have a 6-strings woodstock with the same sunburst finish as the 12-string in the photo.  I've been trying to discover the value of this guitar as well which is why I stumbled on this forum.  I am very interested in selling the guitar as i play Maton acoustics and don't really find that this guitar has the sound i like.  It was given to my brother by my father back in 99, apparently he had it for some years before that.  So if anyone is interested please let me know.

Hello. I have a guitar that looks just like it, with the burn mark inside, and the mark on the back top neck. Thou it's missing the burned serieal number over the burn mark inside it. Insteed it has a id number on the top of the head, on the small flat, that reads; 83030

Is it real ?

Welcome Ironfist!  Try to post some photos.  The serial # appears to be reasonable, but the location sounds wrong.

Hi Ironfist and welcome to the forum.
Sounds like an early Festival 1983 made in Japan possibly Yamaki. I'm not the all round expert on acoustics, hopefully Pike will pop along with the book details. In the meantime some pics would be great.
Most of the guys use Photobucket, it’s free and relatively simple to use.

http://photobucket.com/

Open an account, transfer pictures from computer to Photobucket.
Once pictures are there if you scroll over the picture with your mouse it will bring up some choices below it.
 
To show the picture in your thread copy the img. Option and paste it on your thread.

To put a one click direct link to the picture on Photobucket copy the Direct Link option and paste it on your thread.

It does get easier once you’ve done it. Cheers.

Hello, I'm looking to buy a EA40 woodstock, the owner insists they bought it in the very early 70's used. She thought it was from 1969 inspired by the woodstock festival. If that is true, is it American made? And would that justify the 500 dollar price tag? Its in good shape, but not excellant. The serial number on this one is No.85265. Does this early date sound correct? Thanks and I'm sorry to mud the water any more than what it already has.
