Show Us Your Washburn / Re: My J-5, J-6, J-7, and J-600

Yes! Ship is right.  That is a mighty fine collection you have there!

Thank you SO MUCH, BigCity2!

I have copied the price sheets and will send them on up to the person from whom I bought the guitar. I have high hopes that UPS will see fit to pay off on the damage claim now, as this is the last piece of information they asked for.

Cheers to you!!!!! :D  and, again, THANKS! from Dugly 8)

Geez...UPS's gorillas were not so kind to the D62SW I bought. I knew it had some cracks on the soundboard (which I am NOT asking UPS to repair), but when it arrived there was a 6" crack on one side of the back that hadn't been there when the guitar was shipped.

Of course, I insured it...always do...but this time UPS is dragging its feet and they want to make sure that they aren't paying more than the guitar is worth.

Is it possible that anyone might have a Washburn document (old catalog page, some sort of advertisement, a price list, that sort of thing) that might have what would have been a retail price on it? We provided a copy of the check I sent the owner to document the price that was paid before the guitar was delivered to UPS, but I guess that wasn't enough.

Is there anything else anyone can suggest? I use to work for an insurance company...believe me, insurance companies LOOK for ANY reason to deny a claim, it's how they make sure they make a profit.

Thanks for whatever you can do to help. If you can post a photo of whatever you find, I'll print it off on the computer and send it on up to New York.

I had noticed that the 60 model had dropped off the inventory list at WMS, glad to hear you got one!

It has taken a while for me to develop an appreciation of my took a while for the strings to settle in and in fact I still have the factory strings on mine. My 60 was at a disadvantage because I had recently purchased a couple of WG26S guitars and they appear to my old, noise damaged ears to have better spectral balance as well as greater volume than the 60. Having said all that, though, I'd have to say that my 60 is in the top half of my collection regarding play time. It's a pleasant guitar to play and there's something about those slope-shouldered dreads that really helps them shine in a group.

I had wondered how the 50 model sounds...I expected it to have a more woody sound because of the Koa used for the sides and backs.

Yeah, Ship...lots of companies "downsizing" now in this competitive business environment and we can certainly expect that trend to continue. I agree...what a shame! We get a lot of great potential members who make a one-time request (usually for wiring instructions/valuations) and we never again hear from them. I know this is a common phenomenon in our industry (in fact I was a "one post wonder" on the Takamine guitar forum), but I'd like to suggest that the support services provided by our forum members would be likely to reduce the magnitude of demand that would become Washburn's responsibility if this forum "disappears".

A bit of "moderator support" would be nice now and then. I can only post from work until this iPhone issue is resolved...and I am one of our most active posters.

BUMP TTT, hoping an admin will help with this ongoing issue!

Thanks for the suggestion, Ship... but it didn't work.

Here is what I did...signed off using the "Log Out" tab on the grey tool bar.

Logged back on using the "sign in" tab on the tool bar...did not select the "remain logged on" option, but chose the 60 minute option.

Tried to respond to this thread with my cell phone.

Got this message: "Please try again. If you come back to this error screen, report the error to an administrator"

I've done that, even sent a PM to WBNick (but not to WEBgUy). I think there is some setting on the forum that is prohibiting posts by an iPhone, but don't know if that's true. I just always get that "Please try again" prompt.

It's frustrating b/c I don't have my desktop connected at home...had a crash caused by a Mother Earth News flash drive and just now got it fixed. I use my iPhone MUCH more than I do my computer, even when it is functional. I try to be of help to those who post questions on the forum...but the iPhone posts are always refused by that error message.

Surely someone can do something about that....

The problem persists!

Unlike other online transcription companies that may limit you in the fields in which you their services are deemed eligible, restaurants near me open now  cabbagetreesolutions will transcribe any piece of work to another format be it in the field of medicine or in the field of entertainment or law.

REALLY? You spammed a thread authored by the administrator of this forum?

You obviously need more help than just a few customers.

Shame on you!   >:(

Brresser, ignore that last post...spammers!

Isn't the WD750SW still in Washburn's catalog? If so, you should be able to get the valuation from there.

[Edit...guess not...hard to find on the internet, too. Try a forum search (on the grey bar at the top of the forum), perhaps somebody has posted a comment and mentioned price.]

It's an all solid-wood guitar, so it will have some value...if you're trying to sell it, though, you need to know that used Washburns don't hold their value like Taylors, Breedloves, Gibsons or Martins...with the exception of the DB models, which seem to be holding on.

It appears that the WD750SW was discontinued in 2012, based on what I read on the few threads that discussed that model.

Did you buy the guitar from an authorized Washburn dealer?


Dugly 8)

On my classicals the G-string is the SMALLEST of the wound strings.

Most of the time I find the opposite...the G string seems muted in comparison to all of the other strings.

I wonder if the UST pickup (just an assumption it's a UST) might be a two part item, one part for strings 1-3 and the other part for strings 4-6. That might explain why the G string seems loudest, it would be the only wound string on that part of the UST.  Just a guess, though.

If you bought the guitar from an authorized Washburn dealer you should have a limited lifetime warranty. I would doubt that it would be necessary to send it back to the Washburn headquarters, they would probably refer you to a music store that is an authorized dealer for evaluation. It might just be a simple adjustment.

Hope this helps a little.

General Discussion / Washburn with no serial number on the label?
« on: February 10, 2018, 04:40:50 PM »
Ever seen a Washburn without a serial number on the label inside the body of the guitar?

I was surfing around on eBay and found one...hope I can get the copied URL to show it.

Well, it didn't display the URL for the photo, but you can still find it on the eBay photos.
