I'm with you Pike.  Sorry for the huge pics.  Never done that before.  I think purely looking at the aging of the guitar, she is older than 1987.  From your comments, sounds like the headstock is saying 77 but the  pickguard is saying 87.

Thanks for following up Pike.  Yeah the '87 has V slot at the top like many Washburns, but mine is squared (like Martin).  Mine also has a Washburn style pick guard.  Do you know the woods this guit is made from?

Whatever the year, it is a sweet sounding guitar!

Pike,

I sent Washburn an email about my Washburn D25 12 string way back when I started this topic in December.  They got back to me today!  Anyway, Washburn said I had a 1987 model.  You said 1977 based on the same serial number.  The lady even attached a copy of the 1987 catalog but the D25 12 has a slotted headstock, mine of course looks like a Martin headstock.  

What gives?

Skip and Pike, tried a red light on the SN and that confirmed the number I thought.  Great tip, thanks.

Dugly and Strum, I definitely think this guitar is a keeper.  Its built like a tank but has an angelic sound.  I can't put it down!

Thanks everybody!  Wow, 1977 - thats pretty old.  I was thinking 1980s.  She's aging very nicely then.  She has a few dings but overall, in good playable condition.  I'm pretty sure 7 is the first digit in the serial #, if that helps with dating the guitar.  Anything I should watch for in caring for guitar thats 30 years old?  Thanks again.

I'm new to the forum a recently became the owner of a Washburn 12 string.  I received as a gift a D-25 12 string that simply sounds beautiful.  It has a Martin Style headstock w/ Washburn stamped on it, appears to be a solid spruce top and rosewood (I think) back and sides.  This is obviously an older guitar so I was trying to figure out when it was made.  Best I can tell, the Serial # is 712645 but the numbers are not real legible so I am guessing.  This is one of the best sounding 12 strings I have ever heard or played.  I'm very happy to have it.  Can anybody help me out?
