Washburn serial numbers are not 100% reliable for dating, but if common wisdom holds up, yours was shipped in 2002.

Since the demise of VintageWashburn.com, we're left with the sparse Washburn archives. (http://www.washburn.com/media/catalogs/) The closest I can get is the 2001, in which the only P-style model is XB-100 "value priced basses."

The inlays are distinctive. At first I wanted to say a WI-18, but those have no pickplate.

So far as I can determine, the only Idols with a pickplate like that were in the WI-64 family. The WI-64DL had a fancy top. I'm half-certain there was a variant on the DL, but can't find it in my notes.

General Discussion / Re: Lyon by Washburn LB-10 /SB

Last things first. :)

Is Lyon by Washburn the same as Washburn?
In the same way that a Squier Affinity is "a Fender." To the best of my knowledge, the Lyon brand was intended for large Canadian retail chains. Most models were produced for a limited time. Most models were basic, inexpensive guitars, with some exceptions: I own an LCT24 (like a double-cut Les Paul) that is rather nice & somewhat collectible; here's someone else's --


in which catalog could I read about this bass?
As a commodity brand, there'd be no catalogues, though there may be informational flyers for stores. There has never been a website for Lyon guitars.

I need help determining the year of production of this guitar. No serial number is available.
Without a serial number, there is no way to narrow down the production year. Generally, I only saw the Lyon brand around 2000 to 2005.

I only know that it's the LB-10 / SB model. in which catalog could I read about this bass?
It's an easy guess that "LB" stands for "Lyon bass." With such a low model number, it's likely the least-expensive Lyon bass, with probable retail price under $200.

Hello!
I have Bass Chicago USA, typical PB. Is awesome. The serial number is SS0211145. Unfortunately, I could not find any information about this instrument. Can someone point me to the catalog in which this bass guitar will perform?
