Title: Ever seen this Washburn Explorer Copy ?
Post by: ryden on August 10, 2018, 03:11:53 PM
I'm so used to the A series that I didnt know what to think when I saw this one.
Any clues ? 6 digit serial number, what looks like a cheap tremolo, pickups are definetly replacements.
Also that work on the headstock

Probably not, but has a neck plate with a serial number

Impossible to see clearly in the photo. You could just TELL US what the serial number is -- right?

In any case, a standard-size neck plate is easy to change. I can get you a Fender or Epiphone if you want, though that wouldn't change the guitar's brand... right?

FWIW, if it did happen to turn out to be a Washie, it'd be an interesting story. The company has never been big on skunk-stripe necks, for instance (though I haven't yet made up a list of the few examples). And it'd likely be informative to find out what mad genius would clone a Stage Series headstock!!
