Hi,
I appreciate this topic has been covered a few times, but having searched the forums I can't seem to find a definitive answer.

So, my BT-10 is missing the trem arm, and I thought it was a 6mm metric threaded, but having bought one of those it doesn't fit. I mean, it fits though the 'nut' shaped piece, but it will not screw in.
I can't actually see into the hole to determine exactly what is going on ?

It's the standard trem unit with 'Washburn 600-s' on it, and the block is stamped Takeushi

Any ideas would be gratefully received

No, I didn't see that but wasn't looking for anything like that. I have not been on here for a while but after looking around it seems a shame what has happened to this forum...

Vintage and Rare Washburns / 1984 Washburn FV-30V BBR Carlos Cavazo Edtion
« Last post by pagoda on March 24, 2019, 08:06:57 PM »
Does any one have information on the Limited 1984 Washburn FV-30V Carlos Cavazo guitar? Washburn produced a electric guitar for Carlos Cavazo and a electric bass for Rudy Sarzo of Quiet Riot. I remember calling Washburn in 1984 to inquire about the Cavazo edition flying V and it was to have Carlos signature on the 22nd fret. But since Carlos had a signature that you could not read, due to the small size on the 22nd fret, the company did not mass produce it. The Washburn supervisor said they made three of them, two went to Carlos. Has anyone seen or heard of this or know about where the third one went or pictures any where?

Carlos or Rudy if you read this please shed some light on this. I thank you in advance for your assistance. Rock On!

Hollowbody & Jazz Series / HB35 multi piece neck
« Last post by el84 on March 23, 2019, 07:39:39 AM »
Hello all,
I am a long time lurker that recently picked up this older HB35  natural. I searched and couldn't find a topic on the multi piece neck HB35's.
This guitar plays and sounds great . I noticed the top is true 3 ply plain figured maple and the darker laminated strip of wood is wood , not ebonized material although not certain what it is. Perhaps walnut ? The neck has a mahogany center section and headstock ears and the two outer pieces are maple.  It has extended tenon and a mahogany center block . The clear finish is thin . Very nice work on the binding and nice overall craftmanship .

No Grovers on this one and the pots are full size, seem to be original with yellow braided cloth used as a sleeve to keep the tone to volume wires gathered up . The 3 way switch is Switchcraft style, not a box style anyway . Six digit serial starting with S92 on the headstock . The sticker in the F hole was not filled in.

Edit ; having trouble loading photos

I have a Washburn Monterey acoustic electric. I bought it years ago but due to not using it very much have decided to sell it. It is in very nice condition but I have no idea what year it is. From the forums I have learned that early 80's had the old pickup system with the 2 control knobs next to the neck like this one, and mid eighties they went with a equalizer type. The printed number inside the body next to the George Washburn logo is E87592 and the printed numbers inside where the neck stock attaches are hard to read but the first number is a 8, the next number looks like a 2, and I'm guessing 3005 for the last 4. I'd love some help on the year and if anyone can give me a ballpark value that would be great. Pictures on dropbox. It's a spruce or cedar top, rosewood back and sides with the pointed cut-a-way, and mahogany neck. The Tuners have George Washburn printed on them.

Thanks to all who help.

That looks almost the same as the one I had which was an EA44 Monterey,  which I purchased in 1980 here in Australia .... same 2-control pickup system with just volume & tone.   Mine was Tobacco Sunburst colour .... don't think I have a pic of it anywhere though.

Had it until 1984 when I used it as a trade-in on  the D62SW I still have.
