Thank you for your answer. I'll go pots 250k volume and 250k tones.
From what I read humbucker JB also plays better with pots 250k.
Southwest Series / Re: D42SCE Need any information at all!

The Washburn 1999 catalog listed my D42-SCE at $699 featuring Solid Spruce Top, Rosewood Back and Sides. 641mm SCALE/44mm NUT. Rosewood fingerboard. Mahogany Neck. EQUIS EXTRA EQ electronics with 1/4" and XLR outputs. Rosewood carved Bridge. Grover 18:1 Tuners. It is a great instrument that has held up beautifully. Sounds fantastic with age!
As you say, it's a D-10N, a basic dreadnought in natural finish. The top is laminate (plywood) unless the model number contains "S" or "SW."

Well, the downer is that nobody here has access to production numbers, & in any case for a standard model the company's records won't have much detail either. Yours probably left the factory April 1998. Since then, quality of entry-level instruments has risen even as prices have dropped, so there's not so much demand for a used D-10, even two decades old.

What exactly do you mean by "how much"? If you want to buy one, I can point you to listings $100-$150. For most individual looking to sell a guitar, they're fortunate to get 40%-60% of current market price, so at best you could maybe get like $90.

The one style of guitar I do not own is the LP, though I have other guitars (like the Lyon LPT-24) with the TOM bridge, & really ought to upgrade, as the biggest problem is too little room for intonation adjustment, & I usually wind up with one E imperfect.

Have you measured the post-to-post widths (on centers)? Standard Gibson spacing is supposed to be 2-29/32". The problem usually occurs on stud size: Gibson used M5 studs, but most copies use M8. So long as it's the same on center, you might have to pull the bushings & press in new ones to fit the studs.

If I was going to upgrade a good guitar, my first try would be Schaller.

I liked their Nashville as soon as I saw it, a straight-up improvement on the now-classic TOM.

Schaller also makes a roller-saddle version. These have the added advantage of adjustable side-to-side string spacing (like older Gretsch).

The Schaller I've been wanting to try is their Signum. The design looks to possibly improve tonal curve & sustain.

You might also consider the GraphTech NW2 ResoMax or the Gibson TP-6.

The standard cap value is .047. The smaller the value, the less high tones it will roll off. I've heard of players using anything from .022 to .1 depending on their pickups, amp, effects, & musical genre.

If a guitar has all single-coils, 250K is fine; if there's one or more humbuckers, it's generally 500K. I've been told that 1M is best, but I've never made any comparison.
Vintage and Rare Washburns / Harvest SJ / D67SW .... very tempting !
« Last post by DaveTrees on June 19, 2018, 02:39:41 AM »
Currently on eBay here in Australia ...

The "buy it now" price of AUD$900 (~ US$675) is probably a bit excessive, but I'm tempted to offer maybe $650-$700 and see I can snag it !

By the serial no., I'm guessing it's probably 1984 rather than 1986 build ?  Pro

I think it's probably worth the risk of buyig sight unseen .... would certainly look nice next to my 1980 D62SW  :)

Decisions, decisions ... plus explaining it to "the boss"  ;)

I got this guitar when I was pretty young, (still young of course but.. i want to know what this guitar is and how much it would cost to buy one.   its a D-10 from whats on the sticker. Serial number 98043765 or it could be 98043705, not sure what the second to last one is, its faded a bit.

So far i can tell its a solid top because the grain continues in the soundhole, the sound is beautiful btw.

1. how much?

2. when was this made?

it was made in indonesia.
