For the forum members that never got a chance to visit;  here are a few pictures taken by me in March of 2009 of the U.S. Music Corp. Headquarters and Custom Shop.  With the acquisition of U.S. Music by JAM INDUSTRIES LTD., Canada , this facility has since closed.

General Discussion on Washburn Electric Guitars / Sonamaster series review
« on: December 26, 2017, 04:57:01 PM »
Has anyone had a chance to evaluate this series?  Entry level for sure.....just wondering how the series compares to the Fender Squire and others at this price point. ($ 120.00 to $170.00 range)

The tuning machines have been replaced and the pickups are replacementsI believe, by looking at the pictures, that this guitar has been repainted.  Notice the serial number is not as crisp as one would expect to see.

The only finishes that I see listed for this guitar model (from U.S. Music Corp.) are Butterscotch Matte, Natural Matte, and Red Matte.

Thanks for the information and picture.

A good starting point for information on just about any Washburn brand instrument built before WWII would be "Washburn Prewar Instrument Styles" by Pleijsier Hubert..  This is the "GO TO" reference for anyone interested in older Washburn instruments.

Condition and consumer demand is everything when it comes to assessing the value of an older instrument.  (You haven't mentioned what kind of shape the mandolin is in  :-\ it playable?....does it need repair work to make it playable?)

I mean .......REALLY       I can't believe how damn lazy some people are. 

Top 3 subjects on this forum:

Number 1: " I don't know how to post a picture. "   :-\

Number 2:  " I owned a guitar once, but can't remember what I had.  Can someone help me identify the guitar I used to own ? "  :-\

Number 3:  " Looking to sell my USA built Washburn .....the one that has a funny little "Made in Indonesia" decal on the back of the headstock.   :-\

HEY.....Here's an IDEA !!!!!    Let me contact my friend..... The Amazing Carnack.....I'm sure he can help    :D  ;D

Looks like its got a bolt on us the back of the guitar and a closeup of the back of the head stock.  My first thought is that this is an imported BT that someone spent a lot of time repainting and customizing.  Is there a serial number and  "Made In USA" stamped into the back of the head stock?

Can't identify a guitar model without pictures.....a serial number won't do.  Use Postimage to host your picture .....copy the Hotlink to forums and paste it here so that we can see your guitar.

Try Postimage for your photos.  Use the 2 defaults to upload your image to Postimage ( 1200 x 1600 and no expiration)  After you upload... copy the Hotlink for forums link and paste it here.  When you post your reply....your image will appear.

Need to emphasize....the J-14 and J-15 were imported guitars....not made in the USA.  Don't know where that rumor started.
