Show Us Your Washburn / Re: Help Identifying WA45CE
« on: December 30, 2017, 05:44:58 PM »
Hi, and welcome to the forum.

It appears that this guitar has a laminate spruce top, laminate catalpa back and sides, a maple neck with rosewood fingerboard.  It seems to be an exclusive run for the South American market, as the only listings I could find for it were two shops in Santiago, Chile.  Washburn normally doesn't put special runs like this on their website.  Hope this helps!

Based on what I can find, this has a select spruce (laminated) top and laminated mahogany back and sides.  Tuners are Grover-style diecast.  Mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard.  It looks like this was made specifically for the mass-merchandise stores (Guitar Center, Musicians Friend, Music and Arts, Music 123, Amazon), which is why the website has no info.  Hope this helps!

Based on an old post from here that I found, if its the volume pot, it should be 500K.

Welcome to the forum!

The D10SCE is an older model, which is why you won't find it in the current listings.  It is a solid top as denoted by the S after the model number.

Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / Re: Nitro or Poly

I'm pretty sure that all new Washie acoustics are poly finish.  You generally have to pay a premium these days to get a nitro finish.

The only thing I can think of is to make sure your nut is cleanly cut for the G string.  It may be getting hung up there and that might throw your intonation off.

BTW, welcome to the forum!

Kenn, welcome to the forum!

Check out this link:  http://www.vintagewashburn.com/Acoustic/JimSmithCollection5.html  and scroll about halfway down.  This looks like what you have:  a Style 210 mandolin.

As far as polishing the wood, my suggestion would be don't.  Same with the metal.  If you feel it needs some cleanup, the best thing would probably be a slightly damp soft cloth.  With an instrument of this age with the type of lacquer used, anything else may damage it.

BTW, that is a beautiful instrument!

  I have a couple of Chinese Epiphones that are stunning sounding guitars.

I have two Epiphones:  a MIC Dot, and a MII Thunderbird bass.  Both are excellent, and, along with my WMJ, I have spent less than $700 for all of them combined, and bought every one brand new.  I could not buy a new MIA Gibson or Fender for that amount of money, and I'm more than happy with my equipment.

That looks like the Baby Jumbo models that were available for a bit.  I haven't seen one of the Baby Jumbos in person, but I love the shape and would like to find one of these myself.

Got to try one of these yesterday, and I completely agree with you on the sound.  Its not particularly loud, which I think is a function of the all-lam construction, but it does have a nice balanced tone to it.

I use Imageshack and have had good luck with it.

D10 Series / Re: Washburn D10STS
« on: January 28, 2015, 06:07:08 PM »
If that picture is accurate, that would be a NOS (new old stock) D10.  That is an older headstock design not currently in use to my knowledge.  The one thing that worries me is that the listing says its from a vendor in Korea, which could mean it could be leftover stock from a Korean factory, or it is grey market merchandise or completely fake.  The price also seems a bit steep based on what I normally see D10's go for, even with a case, plus you'd have $52 for shipping if you are in the US.  I think I would steer clear of this one.

Acoustic Basses / Re: Help with info on my Bass...
« on: January 08, 2015, 08:05:08 PM »
It looks like the finish on your bass is Woodstone Brown.  Based on a quick glance through the internets, it looks like most used AB-20's are going for around $250-350.

If I remember correctly, this was a special run for Guitar Center.  It has a solid spruce top, laminate rosewood back and sides.  It probably was made sometime in the last 2 or 3 years.  I have tried this guitar out and it did sound quite nice.  I think they were retailing at GC for $299.

General Discussion / Re: WA30 amp questions
« on: January 02, 2015, 10:43:30 PM »
Hi and welcome to the forum.  None of the Washburn amps would have tubes, they are all solid state, so you don't have to worry about that.  Have you tried turning it on since it was dropped?  If not, go ahead and try powering it up and see if you get any sound out of it.

You may be able to plug two mics in, but one will have to use a stereo phone plug and plug in to the phone (non-XLR) jack.  The stereo phone plug has 2 rings on the plug instead of one.

Your EQ looks pretty straightforward for bass and treble.  You can boost or cut up to 15 dB on each.  For your mids, you can select which frequency you want to boost or cut with the Frequency knob, and then boost or cut at that frequency with the Level knob.

The Chorus effect uses the speed knob to control the rate at which the chorus effect sweeps, and the depth controls the level.

Hope this helps.  That is a very sparse users manual.  If you have any other questions, just post them here.  Anyone will be happy to help.
