This is not MG-122. It is 1994 MG-821.
Festival Series / Re: Help with info on this Washburn Monterey?
« Last post by mudbone on December 08, 2018, 11:08:17 AM »
I've had an EA-48 for years, an early model with the Barcus Berry passive bridge pick-up.  Often referred to as the Mac Davis or Juice Newton model.  Not many around. As I finally contacted Wasburn in Buffalo Grove, come to find they have very little info on it also.  Appears to be one of the import models that were held in high regard.

General Discussion on Washburn Electric Guitars / HB35 serial number
« Last post by young_ben_kenobi on December 07, 2018, 09:46:17 PM »
Hey Everyone! Today I found an HB35 hiding in the corner of the used section of guitar center and fell in love with the neck and the way she plays. I don't know much at all about these guitars but I did some digging and I think this one is one from the 1980's however I'm not entirely sure. The serial number is 101 and I've read that the Washburn serial numbers can be kind of difficult to decipher haha. I'm pretty dead set on picking her up and any insight/info on where/what year she might be made in is greatly appreciated, Thanks!

If there's actual twist to the neck, the trussrods of the era will do very little to correct it. A twist can sometimes be carefully heated, & twisted back into alignment... checkout my review and before and after of phenq but it'll eventually fall back into its old habit. If it's not severe, the best way to deal with it would be to defret the beast, plane the fretboard, then refret -- though, again, it may continue to twist.

Although I do own a Washburn, I have another one from different company as well and I was looking for information about the "twist to the neck" for it. And Tony Raven's suggestion "defret the beast, plane the fretboard, then refret" worked successfully for me.

Yes,  "defret the beast, plane the fretboard, then refret" works for me too. Thanks Tony Raven for the advice.
For those that had asked about the Washburn mandolin model M12F this is what I found out:

   I finally got through to Washburn and they graciously got back in touch with me and said that the Model M12F was a  "Sample Model" to see what the market would do. One gentleman told me they did only make a very, very few with less than 10 was the number offered. He added the production was to make the M12F mando with GOLD tuning hardware and tail-piece with solid carved Flamed (Tiger Striped) Maple soundboard, sides and back, bone keys and inlaid head design and mother of pearl dots.. The mandolin was very expensive to make. So much so that the test market wouldn't bare the cost so they didn't pursue making the line and went on to build a less expensive. The Washburn rep didn't know how the few samples were distributed thinking that most likely they were passed out to certain dealers that promoted them as a sample. It was suggested to me by another kind gentleman that the insurance for this IRREPLACEABLE mandolin be for not less than $1000.00 if not more insisting that that amount was NOT and appraisal, only an insurance estimate. Yet another gentleman spoke highly of the one I have commenting that it was in literally 'MINT' condition and would appraise much higher than he could safely suggest.

My M12F serial # is  YB04070008. If I can figure out how to post photos here I would.
