well what you have is a 1994 ( only made during that year) spruce top mahogany ( laminate ) b/s was one of the lower models but all that matters is that you love it I have never had an opportunity to play one so can't really tell you much more. good luck and enjoy

where the hell are they what is the point of keeping old posts that lead no where folks ask questions and there is no place for them to get the info  I realize you are just one guy webguy but dont you see that as being somewhat frustrating for those trying to help get info out there

made 1988 southern jumbo solid cedar top laminate Ovankol  mahogany S/B tortoise pickguard made between 85-92 value in excellent shape should be around $300 with case might have the W at the 12th fret

maybe they dont need the serial numbers as they are special runs for whom ever ordered them and there is that silly warranty card.  ship

not even close Tony what should have given it away was the fact that it was a limited run and they never put serial numbers on limited runs all the time looks like my headstock emblem with the same fret markers but different body heck for all its worth could very well be a sample model so as all limited edition they only made a few mine was a run of a 125

no need to take it to get evaluated it is an original Dana B the best person in the world is bigcity ( he has one of the largest collections of Washburns in the world even bigger then Washburn itself ) as for price well with the market where it is these days I would list it at $1400.00 US without the label it would have been more if Dana's initials where there oh and I see no difference in the soundhole

curious as to why you mentioned breedlove I do not recall them having anything to do with Dana B guitars from what I understand most of these guitars built by him sold fairly quickly and he just got to busy to build for them anymore so thats why the low numbers of his guitars or at least that what I think I remember

Nice guitar only built 25 D-56SW or so of those and depends on if Dana B signed  it or his manager ( CPT initials ) built between 1995 - 1996 most folks wont know what it is you have but those that do I am sure it should be around the starting point of $1400.00 US in great shape with case and make sure you mentioned that it was built by Dana Bourgeois firstly for Washburn.
They did reuse the D-56SW as a timbercraft series called Praire Song but those were made later 2005.

Sorry but I am still uncertain about the claim that Terada ever made acoustics for Washburn I have checked with several folks who know Washburns and they have never seen one either that was built by Terada. I do recall someone mentioning that they did build some proto type guitars for them but they never went into production so I myself would NEVER include them with just the serial numbering in any written books without proper proof, i look at it as liking buying a vintage guitar you want documentation or you would want someone like Jim Smith Sr. to weigh in and say that he has guitars built by Terada as right now he is the most knowledgeable person in all of the world on Washburn guitars and where and when. I do not consider myself an expert by any means but I have bought many Washburns and have searched catalogues and the net for any connection to Terada and found nothing but speculation that he might have.
