Title: What did I get?!?
Post by: sopwith99 on November 11, 2017, 04:34:51 PM
I bought a WI14 guitar today, at least thats what it says on the truss rod cover.  All the images I found on the internet show a hard tail bridge but this one has a tremolo.  It has a transparent finish that shows some nice grain.  The serial starts with 0309xxxx so I guess it was made in 2003.  If anyone knows some details about this model I'd love to know more.

Thanks

The WI-14 only had a hardtail bridge. It's possible someone routed it out for a trem, though I'd be surprised they'd do this with the cheapest Idol. BlueBook says the 14 was built 2004-2010, but there's some "slop factor" in the numbering system so 2003 would not be impossible. The 14 was available in Walnut finish -- you don't say what the color is.

Trussrod covers can be changed.

a picture would help :)

The only Idols that keep popping up with a tremolo are the WI66V and the WI50V
