Vintage and Rare Washburns / 1995 1995 D42SW Harvest & D44SW Golden Harvest
« on: November 30, 2010, 04:00:57 PM »
I bought a Harvest D44SW back in the 90's. It was my 1st all solid wood guitar. I was so proud of it. Since then I have added a few more solids...a Martin D16, an Epiphone slothead, Martin slothead,a Blueridge, (all solid wood) but I still have that D44 Washburn. It holds its own against those others just fine. Its a keeper. I'm still proud of it.

My Classical is a C-80 Tapicas. Got it back in the late 80's/early 90's if I recall correctly.

Its a good one.

I should say that the washburn d82 is the holy grail of washburn acoustics, and they sell for as much as $2600 new.


Is that the one that had the glowing review about it in Acoustic Guitar magazine a few years ago?

I have an Epiphone AJ500RC that has the same situation.

The number stamped on the block is different than the number on the paper that is glued to the inside of the back.

The one on the label is the serial#. I have no idea what the other one is for.

Oh man, this thread is KILLING me. I am >>>severely<<< wanting one of these Washburn parlors.

onewileyfool,

I notice you have 2 of the new Washburn replicas. What are the list prices respectively, and what will someone actually pay?


Thanks,

Dugly,

>>>You know I have to ask  --how does that AJ500RC sound with a slide?<<<



Actually, I've never played slide with that guitar. Its an interesting thought, though. I may give it a try when I get it back from having bridge fixed on it. I mainly play slide on a round neck Regal dobro I have. It doesnt work to well for bluegrass...I have 2 squareneck dobros for bluegrass...but it works great for acoustic slide



>>>Although I make 'em, I can't play 'em yet, so what can you tell me about that?<<<



I like having the slide on my ring finger, but others like the middle finger or the pinky. I play in open G tuning. That way I dont have to relearn a new tuning. (open G is common for bluegrass dobro)

You just have to get used to the notes being in different places. Once you get used to that, the FUN begins.[:D]

Well, hey there Dugly![:)] Fancy meeting you in these parts.

Washburngrasser here...otherwise known as CedarTop Fan at the other site.

I didnt know you made slides. I'm so used to my Coricidin bottles, I dont think I could play anything else.

(I'm a big Duane Allman fan) [:D]

Simon,

I dont feel like going through that much trouble, and I sure dont want to mess up my other forums in the process.

I'll just have to endure this I guess. [:)]

There are some forums that let each user pick the scheme they want. Can we do that here?

I cant stand a black background.

I havent been here for a while and this layout color scheme is just horrible.

Is there a way I can change mine back to white background and blue lines? The way it used to be?

Pike,

I'm not an expert on these things, but my understanding is that the forward shifted bracing is a throwback to how Martin braced their guitars before WWII. After that period they stopped using it on their standard series (and below) for cost and durability reasons.

Hence, the phrase pre-war bracing that is used regularly when referring to the forward shifted option.

...how's the d44SW compare to the Blueridge BR160?


I would say the D44 is pretty close, but not quite as good. The difference of course being the scallopped, forward shifted bracing in the Blueridge...as opposed to the normal bracing of the Washburn.

The scallopped bracing increases volume as well as tone. Just opens everything up a bit.

Brandon,

Yeah, just fact is, people who allegedly play guitar say his ELECTRIC sounds far better in the acoustic department than mine does.


Huh???

Thats the silliest thing I've ever heard. How old are these people...5 or 6???

Are they out of 1st grade yet???

Listen...I'm not a professional musician, but I've been playing guitar for almost 30 years. I've played with 3 traveling bands and played on a couple of CD's and a DVD.

Take a look at my signature and notice how many Washburns.

You've got yourself a great guitar there.

Hi Pike,

The D44SW

Yes, I do still have it. It was my 1st all solid wood guitar, and I'll never get rid of it. I get sentimentally attached to most of my guitars, and usually dont trade or sell them.

Its not my #1 guitar anymore but I take it with me every once in a while and usually get compliments on it from folks.

Its a good 'un. [:)]
