Wondering about the serial
« on: March 17, 2003, 06:57:10 AM »
I guess this is posted alot but I didn't find it so I post it anyway. I bought me a BT-8 (that's what the price-tag said anyway, looked good and played good so I bought it) and looking at the serial thing under FAQ on washburns homepage it should be made in 1980 (BT-8 wasn't even made back then was it?). Now it does say some only one number to indicate year of make, but the serial has one number too much to fit in that category (same amount of numbers as the ones with 2 numbers to indicate year) but maybe it's just a high production number or?? Can someone help me out here please? I'm starting to confuse myself trying to explain lol

cheers

(some more pictures on http://www.tomas-carlstrom.tk under Music scroll down to The Gear and then choose the washburn.)

I don't have a pic of the serial, but I can take if that is needed.

thanks

recently the first number has refered to the year
so if its an 8
then i was in either 98 88 or 78
with your guitar
id say 98
