Hi i still have this guitar
If it was me, I'd first go through my workshop & round up the three standard sizes of threaded arm.

Failing that, I'd next take it to a guitar shop, & ask them to figure it out for me.

Third, go to the hardware store & spend a couple of dollars on assorted machine screws, in the approximate diameter, SAE & metric, fine & coarse threadings.

Fourth, I'd go to a machine shop & have them build me an arm that fits & is perfecty bent to my specifications.

It's very unlikely that the size is unusual, let alone weird (like tapered or something :o).
There's not many non-spammers left here ( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(), but maybe a rare LIVE HUMAN can help me out.

I was curious whether any company makes an actual guitar-type piezoelectric pickup -- that is to say, a piezo element under a saddlepiece in contact with the strings -- for violin.

Plugging piezo violin pickup into the nearest search-engine, I was surprised to be presented with a dozen CONTACT MICROPHONES designed to be stuck to either the top or the bridge. Some of them even look like the same stick-on magnetic microphones that have been around since at least the DeArmond "bug" that Reinhardt used in the early '50s.

After plowing past those, I found a few (Baggs and Barcus-Berry) that actually had a bridge... but the piezo element is sorta stuck into the middle rather than resting under the strings.

I mean,  ??? ::) :o, right?? If that is A Good Idea, then why have guitar makers been wasting so much time for so long, when they could have simply glued the piezo element to the bridge or even stuck it on the inside of the top, just like the classic mag bug??

Are there any signs of the serial number left? I am guessing around 82 or so.

An idea for a scratchplate would be brushed aluminum. That would look really cool

And I am a sucker for black with gold hardware.

Unless it's an SW model, back & sides will be laminate. The WD7 specs say mahogany.

Hello Everyone, 6 weeks ago I purchased a used Washburn WD7sce . I really enjoy this acoustic electric guitar. I have been trying to learn of the guitar's construction.  My  research says its a solid spruce top, but what of the back and sides? I have read conflicting information.  Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated, serial number is SC16090208, if that should help, Thank you
