Not that I have ever seen in any of my older catalogues Magoo and for the amount that those suckers cost they better be fairly accurate.ship

Not sure as to the commitment of Jam to us Canadians Magoo, no one selling Washburns out here either the few shop have said no thanks to them, as of late without any explanation to us consumers. I can find used Washburns out here but nothing new I actually have to cross the border to find anything new and even then its very ( and I mean very limited ). Its almost like they just do not care about the product anymore. I can't even remember the last time Nick or anybody from Washburn has been on the forum telling us about a new product or when the custom shop will be building again or anything. Thank goodness the older ones are still worth playing.ship

I follow Washburn on Twitter. Few weeks back they put out pics from the shop of a production run on N4 necks. That shop also builds all the Parker guitars, and does contract work for other brands as well. They are working at it.

The industry continues to redefine itself. I hope They can find a way to keep the Washburn brand name vital. I'm unaware of other custom shop offerings bearing the Washburn name...Even Boogie Street seems to have moved on. It's a shame, given the skill in place at the shop.

I would still pony up for a circa '03 Idol build. I regularly troll CL and ebay in hopes of finding a custom shop model available.

I hear you lads, sad state here  for washburn.  the guy that sold them here has finally closed.  got a bass case off him yesterday for $40 tax in.  no guitars left,  and don't look good for washburn here again.  I can get them shipped in for me,  but without trying it in shop, its not a thing i would do.   Long mcquaide  is now the big box store here  and they carry everthing, except washys.  and they offer the lowest price in Canada  so its hard for the moms and pops to compete.  sad day here for washys.

Guitar is one of the most amazing musical instruments. There are many great guitarists which can entertain the audience by playing some wonderful tricks on the guitar. I learnt it from my assignment help (https://cupertinotimes.com/7-ways-how-technology-is-impacting-modern-education/) source. I am also interested in making my name as a guitarist.
