General Discussion on Washburn Electric Guitars / BT-8 Maverick Manual
« on: April 18, 2006, 12:09:46 PM »
Guitars/Basses don't typically come with a manual, unless you're getting a guitar from Wal-Mart/Sears, or it has a lot of new features not found in any other guitar, don't expect there to be a specific manual for the instrument.

Stacy Puckett, Washburn Customer Service,
Were any of the factory workers you saw during lunch manufacturing J28's or do they mostly make the Washburn USA models; and if so, isn't that a really long commute?

No sir, the D80 series of Washburn acoustics is the only current US made acoustic we carry.  There were some NV guitars made in the US as well.  If you have an issue with your guitar, and a valid purchase receipt, give us a call at 1-800-877-6863 x5120.  

If you expect to get a quality name brand US made acoustic for less than around $1000, you're in for a rude awakening I'm afraid, however, we've been selling quality import acoustics since 1974 in our current incarnation.  I don't need to defend the guitars, they speak for themselves.

General Discussion / Lifetime Warranty...
« on: April 14, 2006, 02:18:00 PM »
P.Hill sells some new guitars as well as seconds, so the statement that we don't warranty guitars from them is not true really.

The warranty information can be found here.

A XB700B (black) has a retail price of $499.90.

It's an affordable import Bantam Bass series with a wooden neck and a p/j style pickup configuration.


B grade Washburns are sold by a few online retailers, including

They have to specify if it's b stock on the auction/selling page, and the guitar serial number is registered as a b stock item as well.  I've not heard of it, but if there were a mixup and you were shipped a b stock guitar instead of a new one, the receipt should state whether it was sold as new or B stock, and we can tell by the receipt and price paid typically as well.

Finish flaw guitars have the same warranty as all other new Washburns.  Limited lifetime for structural/manufacturing defects, excluding the finish.

Hope this explains it a little more.

Thanks for the encouragement Rocket!

It is business as usual, unless all the factory workers I saw during lunch was an illusion.

General Discussion on Washburn Electric Guitars / Price of my washburn
« on: April 13, 2006, 04:41:37 PM »
The model DIME333DS last had a retail list price of $1059.90.

I can't advise on it's current worth, basically.. whatever you can get for it?  Depends on too many things such as condition, location, and the buyers desire for the instrument, etc...

Hope this helps.

General Discussion on Washburn Electric Guitars / washburn wi64d

The WI64 in Birdseye Maple finish guitar currently being offered on does NOT have the VCC or the Buzz Feiten tuning system unfortunately.

I am working dilligently to have music123 change the description to more closely match the guitar that is being sold.  Please be advised before it's too late if you're looking for a guitar with the VCC or Buzz Feiten system, this is not the one to get.

They should change the info on the website hopefully ASAP.

This is an exclusive product to, and does not affect any other WI64 guitars being sold anywhere.  It's a more affordable model ($250) offered without these features, it's unfortunate the description on the website is not accurate.  I am following through on my end to get the necessary changes needed.

I apologize for the mis-info, but wanted you guys here to know the truth on this model.

The Lyon guitars sold at Target are comparable to the Gibson guitars you will find at Circuit City, or any other bigbox chain that has jumped online with every major guitar manufacturer in the country.  

They are manufactured to be able to sell in the lower price bracket that all of America is clamoring for thanks to chains like Walmart.  

Considering the number that we sell, and the returns we get on them, they are overall not a 'bad' product line at all, and have a low return rate.  That being said, you do get what you pay for.  Don't expect to get a guitar ready to play in a stadium in a 'bix box' retail chain.  Consult a local dealer.

If you're looking for something to learn on, it should be fine.  If there's any problem, contact us at 1-800-877-6863.  We stand behind the warranty on these instruments the same as every other Washburn.
