Title: Washburn D30s Japanese original Yamaki made acoustic guitar
Post by: Tamafan on May 22, 2017, 05:42:18 PM
Hi just wondered if anyone owns a Washburn D30s MIJ. This is the original version, solid spruce top, lam roared back and sides. Flat top headstock not v headstock. I've bought it, just wondering if anyone else has one and what you think?

Hi tamafan
Nice classic guitar design, surely a good player if it's in good condition.
Please post photos! And Sound samples!
I have a D-30SN second version, also MIJ which has different specs.

Hey scooter,
As far as I can see, tamafan didn't post any pictures, so you were watching my guitar. It is maple back and sides with a V-headplate. I think they made them between 1988 and 1993, when the appeared in the catalogues. Some say the are MIJ, yamaki made. I think your is from 1988.

Hi thanks for the replie.
It's got 93 at the beginning of serial number not 83 , so prob means 1993,
I opened a thread and managed to put a couple of pics up with the help of another member.
I paid 100 pound , its a piece of gold , i have payed alot more for a guitar and not a patch on this guitar .
Kind regards
