Title: D26S year?
Post by: Gitguy on August 17, 2017, 07:51:08 AM
Just picked up a gorgeous D26S Martin style headstock , spruce top, mahogany back sides.
Serial number 1666

Any idea what year this is???  Made in Japan?

Thank you

Does the 1 mean 1981

Maybe...Washburn's serial numbers are sometimes revealing, sometimes not. Tony does a very good job of explaining that in the first of the two threads referenced below. That 4 digit serial number is rather unusual, though.

The second thread below is mine...and it addresses more than just serial numbers, but there is some info in there about serial numbers.

I hope these are helpful!

late 70's to early 80's so its a 1981 but I think the top should be cedar and yes japan made more likely Yamaki
