Washburn Mercury 11series
« on: March 19, 2003, 10:23:31 AM »
I have recently purchased a mercury 11 series that I belive is around 6 years old the serial no is 4010496.
It has a 24 fret maple neck with I think an( Alder ? )clear lackered body, Grover machine heads,Floyd rose locking bridge and Washburn pickups - double neck centre & double bridge.
Can any-one advise on the country of manufacture, does the serial no give any detail? or an overall view of the quality of this guitar and the sort of value either when new or now ( it is in v good condition.)
It sounds great!

Thanks for replying -
The hardware is black inc Volume and Tone controlls.
For info, the scratch plate is white pearl effect, body wide grain wood natural under deep laquer finish - kinda strat shape.

The Pickups are numbered 521 (neck) 512 523 (bridge)
Any idea where these were/are made?
Cheers Pat

i wanna say that the washburn series of pickups are subcontracted to Dimarzio          
they are made alot like Dimarzio pickups      
i could be wrong

as for the model
they made so many back then

i just dont know
but its a great guitar anytime u play remember that its the equal of any ibanez jem on the market

Guys wassup?
Since you look like having good inputs on the Washburn products, here's my question...
I wanna buy a Mercury II Series MG701-FVS (sn : 4010597) cause it's mint and playin' nice... But I have no clue how much it worth...[?]
Sooooo... y'all have any clues on how I should offer?
Thanks!

for a 94 mg701  

hmmm
mint

u should bring it home for under 300 bucks
and that makes me sick
its worth more than that
but on the market it just won't bring it
