D-12-12 is the model. The "B" indicates it is black.  14th Edition Blue Book of Acoustic Guitars (2012) lists the D12 12 as having a spruce top, round soundhole, black pickguard, three-stripe bound body and rosette, mahogany back/sides/neck, 14/20 fret rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot inlay, rosewood bridge with pearl dot black pins, six-per-side chrome diecast tuners, available in black, brown, natural, tobacco sunburst, or white finish. mfg. 1980s-1994.   Excellent: $175-225;  Average: $100-130;  Last MSR: $400.  Note that the price info is 7 years outdated but still seems to be fairly accurate based on D12's sold on ebay.  This next bit of info is from Washburn's 1994 catalog but should be similar to your 1991.  1994 D-12-12:  Laminated spruce top, mahogany back and sides, 650mm scale, 48mm nut.  Hope this helps.

One only needs to see that the Moderators (deltacaster - Last Active: August 31, 2010, 04:03:50 PM; and WB-Nick - Last Active: February 20, 2013, 04:10:50 PM) don't appear to be involved much lately. Probably a good indication of Washburn's willingness to support this forum as a place to come "talk Washburn".  It sure is a shame as the forum is a tremendous source of information for almost anything Washburn, provided you can navigate through the piles of offers for writing papers or removing unwanted hair.

Thanks to the "Is Blue Book Dead" spammer for reminding me I found the answer to your question a few weeks back.  I am able to get information (build specs) directly from the blue book of guitar values website. On my PC I went to and near the center of the page is a box titled "Find your guitar and amplifier values". You can type in the manufacturer and/or model AFTER you select from one of the four options to the immediate right (acoustic guitars, electric guitars, guitar amplifiers, mandolins). The search results should come up directly below where you enter what you are looking for. The search is VERY specific. For example, Model:  D34SCE and D34 SCE comes back with "No Results Found". However, D34 or D34 S or D34 S CE will find Washburn's D34SCE.  You can also get broader results if you just input the Manufacturer:  Washburn (or whomever).  So just select the type of equipment first followed by manufacturer and/or model.

D10 Series / Re: D10CEMTBL model number

OP was inquiring what the numbers/letters in the model number of his guitar meant. At the end of my post I was letting him know I also had a trans-blue D10M and as my model does not have the "CE" designation (no cutaway/preamp) it would not be considered an acoustic-electric guitar. I apologize if my wording was confusing.

I hope this helps.   D = Dreadnought style; C = single rounded Cutaway; E = onboard preamp (acoustic-Electric); M = all Mahogany body (back/sides/top are laminate); TBL = Trans BLue. According to Blue Book, these were made from 1997-2000.

Washburn's D10 series is quite popular.  They are considered an affordable entry level guitar.  I have a D10M-TBL (non acoustic-electric).  It has done me well and I really think the trans-blue looks sharp.


Long time listener, first time poster.  I've been working to bring a D68 "something" back to life. Was in pretty rough shape when I got it and its slowly getting better.  Thought I would post what I've got as the information on this model seems pretty cloudy at best.  From the S/N I think it is from 1994.  The info on the neck block identifies it as a D68SW. It is also a single cutaway/acoustic-electric (CE). I've read postings there are no acoustic-electric versions of the D68 and there are no solid wood cutaway acoustic electric versions of this model.  I'm still somewhat unsure of what I have.  All I know is I really like the way it plays & sounds.  Here are pictures (I hope this works).  If not I'll try again.
