Hi, i bought a classical 64SCE about 2 years ago and i have not used the output jack on the guitar before as i am just a beginner.  A few days ago i  plugged the guitar into my pc to try to do some recording using the internal pickup.  The 3rd (and 4th strings) are much louder than the 3 base strings.  Is this normal?  I am not sure if the pickup is faulty or something needs to be setup properly.  i just changed the strings and it made no difference.  I took it back to the shop and the technician told me that it is normal and just due to the very thick G string.  i have written a couple of emails to Washburn asking for advice, but heard nothing.  Anyone have any advice to offer?  Faulty amp, or setup needs adjustment ?
Thanks in advance.

   I'd be surprised if anyone has matching serial numbers for the R320SWRK.... Here's one I bought direct from U.S. Music Corp in 2009. 1st image is the shipping box with the item serial number and 2nd image is the serial number on the instrument in the box.  The invoice (not shown), from U.S. Music Corp, uses the shipping box serial number for identification.
   Notice the hand written 02 under the printed UPC sticker in the 1st corresponds to the last 2 digits of the serial number inside the guitar.  I think somebody just FU...the UPC doesn't match what's hand written on the box and what's printed on the sticker inside the guitar.

   This is normally inexcusable, but it happened about the time U.S. Music was sold....

My guess would be if the last 2 numbers are scratched off of the serial number inside your was probably done by the dealer. (When the dealer realized the serial number inside the guitar didn't match the shipping box serial number)  I am surprised that your serial number starts with 12 ....being a 2008 or 2009 model.
This model appears to be in stock with 4 on line retailers here in the United States.  I would follow up with your dealer in the UK.

I think this is a Washburn F-21 S.  ( Assuming that you bought it in 1996-1998?)  It was the only smaller bodied Washburn acoustic offered at that time that had a fully bound body (front / back).  The F-21 S also featured a bound neck.

The MSRP, here in the United States, was $ 449.90 (1996 price guide) and $ 549.90 (1997 price guide)  So the F-21 S would likely have sold in NZ for around NZ $500.00.

Auction estimate on this model, in excellent condition, would be $ 240.00 to $ 280.00 USD.  (this is also the current BB valuation)
I ordered one of these in November last year from a very reputable dealer here in the UK but since then I have had no news at all about when I might expect to receive the guitar. Does anyone have any news about the likely delivery date? It's 3 months now since I placed my order.

Hi guys.
Sorry for the odd request. I owned a Washburn acoustic guitar (as per the photograph).
It was caught in a fire in my folks' home at the end of December but survived relatively unscathed. The case was kind of blackened but the guitar seemed OK. However, it was subsequently stolen from an area we were using to store the stuff we salvaged from the fire. The police caught the guys that did it and I need to know how much the guitar is worth for insurance purposes (they weren't able to recover it).

This is the only photo I have of the guitar as I lost my PC in the fire also. I know it's a bad pic with the music stand in the way etc.. All I can remember is that it was a 3/4 size ( "concert" size?) with a solid top and had no built-in amplification (I used to use a pickup in the sound hole). The head stock seems to have a kind of "V" cut shape in the top.

Any idea how much it is worth? I bought it around 20 years ago and from memory it cost around NZ$500.

ANy help greatly appreciated.

Here's another serial oddity:  I've got an R320swrk with a small Ser. No. label pasted over the usual Washburn label.  The number appears to be:  *OI 12080xxx.  (the last digits are scratched off)  Elsewhere label indicates "Crafted in Indonesia"  I purchased new in 2009...

Yes! This guitar is a destructive machine! Very devalued and swallowed by other more modern brands, the Washburn suffered a little with their models The new line 2017 parallaxe came with everything to reaffirm the washburn at the top.
Speaking of excellent guitar, we have the Washburn CS-780, launched in 2001 and considered one of the top of the catalog of the time. And it's no use, as it has the following specifications:
Body carved Mahogany fine shape (same as Ibanez Frank Gambale)
Maple Neck
Rosewood Scale 24 jumbo frets
Duncan Design Pickups
Floyd Rose Licensed
Groover 18: 1 Tuners
1 volume and 1 tone with push-pull

I have one in White Pearl color intact with no scratches.
It's a rare guitar with a killer sound.

The guitar is comfortable because the shape of the body is soft. U-arm brings a comfortable and fast footprint. The 5-way switch with push-pull option brings a variety of sounds.
Without a doubt a complete guitar.

Oh, and it's one of the few brands to ship their armored factory guitars.
Washburn rocks
