AB90i - Has Washburn made a limitied edition?
« on: September 08, 2006, 07:37:41 AM »
Curious, Did Washburn actually make a limited edition version of the AB90i? Supposedly only produced 48 were made, each with a number.

Here are the differences;
UNIQUE FEATURE: Transparent black flame finish
UNIQUE FEATURE: Piezo bridge pickup
UNIQUE FEATURE: Blender system
UNIQUE FEATURE: Numbered _ of 48

Is this legit or is this guitar a Washburn Knockoff?

Thanks

I've heard two stories of where it's being made. Korea & China, Know one knows for sure.

It was made in Korea for Washburn. It's an official Washburn (not a knockoff) and it's a beautiful instrument.

I happen to be one of the lucky owners of there beautiful basses.
It is #12 of 48. I have played many, many basses ,but never one half as amazing as this one. It is a little heavy ,but the sound more than makes up for it. It is a must have if you got $2,300 and are lucky enough to find one. (I recomend Ebay, it's the cheepest way to go.)

BTW the Piezo PUs are amaing!!!!
