Yes, the "14" means 2014.  Both of mine were made in that year.  I believe the next two numbers are the month.  I bought my first one over a year ago when they were still available from the larger online dealers like Sweetwater and I believe the spalted maple ones were $400 and the Koa ones were $500.  I got both of mine (one spalted and one spalted with a tobacco burst) for $249 each.  They are amazing guitars for that price!

What do you want to know about it?  There's not a whole lot available, especially since they've been discontinued.  It's the same as the spalted maple Idols (which I have two of) only with a Koa top.  Washburn did a run of these two years ago and you can get the Koa or spalted maple ones from Butler Music on Ebay.  There's a bit of information here: http://www.washburn.com/news/40-Washburn-Guitars-Revisits-the-Idol.html

I love mine.  Both of mine were set up nearly perfect out of the box and I really like the neck.  I replaced the pickups and bridge on both, but that was more of a personal choice rather than necessity.
