According to 1994 Washburn catalog, this is MG-112 model.

BueBook sez the 112 was a stoptail.

Not that I'd bet the farm on BlueBook. According to them, there were only three/four US-made MGs with Rose trem: 94, 104, 154, & maybe 113. The first three are 24-fret (& hsh or hss). While a 22, the 113 has bound maple top, wasn't black, & was sss.

Off to the pricelists, then. 1993 shows three USAs with Rose: 94, 104, 154. 1994 has only the 112, & sez it's a mahogany body (no mention of the bound quiltie top that BlueBook promises) & Duncan hh.

After all that, I must concur: MG-112. Book value $600+ (USD).
