Vintage and Rare Washburns / Re: Info on 1980 D50

Thanks for the info fellas.  Sounds like Washburn  didn't make very many of these.  Makes since that I was having trouble finding info.  I'll post some more pics when I get back from vacay.  FYI the guitar in the case just to the left of the washburn in the pic is a Gibson L-30 that her father had.  It's got to be at least 75 years old looks like that's when Gibson discontinued them.
As I suspected, thanks very much for the confirmation.

Hi I'm new to this forum and am interested in finding out more information about a washburn New Model that I am going to start some repair work on.   Stamped inside is the following, the George Washburn stamp,  New Model stamp,  a #2 on braces under soundboard,  and serial number 30668, style 202.  Any idea of age or what the style 202 model was would be greatly appreciated.
That's my understanding - so you pop in a "dummy" 1/4" plug to activate the pre-amp. The flip side of this is that, so long as the 1/4" is plugged in, the pre-amp is on and using battery. If you do not unplug after use, your pre-amp's battery will drain out.
Hi Dave! It would help a lot if you put up some pictures  ;)

Nice one!
I can confirm info from Dugly. All solid according to blue book. Must have been a short lived model, not in my catalogues.
Ebony fingerboard & bridge, beautiful inlays and binding!
Care to show more photos?
Hi, thought I'd try playing my EA36 (equis 2 pre amp) thru the xlr input on the mic channel of my acoustic amp. Seems it only plays when the 1/4" jack is plugged into the guitar at the same time. Does the pre amp only kick in when the jack is plugged in? Thanks in advance.

Very nice guitar made in 1980 solid spruce top and solid Rosewood back/sides only seen one since my dealings with Washburn and enjoyed playing with it I believe it was made in Japan it is in the right time period as for value well thats a hard one but I would put it around the $500 - $625

This guitar found me and I wanted to see if anyone has any info on it.  There was a card in the case saying it was purchased in 1981, says the model number is a D50, and the 6 digit serial number starts with 80.  My understanding is that the first two digits indicate the year.    Would love to know anything else about the guitar (specs, country of manufacture, approx value etc)

A friend of mine inherited it from her father it was his special guitar.  He told her that it is high-end.   I just strummed it for a few minutes and it felt nice to me!  I don't think my friend will sell it for sentimental reasons but just wanted to find out info on it for her.  I'm going to take it to my guitar guy for a set up because I have a feeling the guitar will be sitting around my house for the time being.  Might as well get her to sing!
