Show Us Your Washburn / Washburn T-Bird
« on: January 22, 2009, 04:04:46 PM »
Loved the T-Birds. I have a Raven (81), a Falcon (83), and an A20 (83). Love them all. Don't a T-Bird yet, but always looking.

Show Us Your Washburn / A-20V

I think it is indeed the date actually. Usually though, those would have the first 2 numbers be the year, at least that's what I've normally seen, with some exceptions. To be sure, call a place like Elderly Instruments (I work there) and ask to speak to the Appraisal Department. Give them your serial number, they should be able to help.

Long time, but some success. I recently purchased a 1983 Falcon for only $225. Just needed a minor set up, plays great now. Pictures will be up on my My Space profile soon. Check them out. Always looking for another if anyone has one they want to part with.

Hmmmm........from what I can see on the market for Washburns from that period, I would have to say $300 to $500, $500 being the max. Being that this was a flat topped version, I would have to say closer to $300, but condition matters a lot too. Let me know. You can contact me via my web page, www.patzelenka.com. Thanks!!!!

I have seen very few early Falcons or Hawks that were painted.  Besides the Ivory Eagle and Black Eagle the painted ones were generally the lower end of the Wing line - Condor, Raven, T-bird, etc.  They had flat tops instead of carved, and you might even find one with a Kahler.

Good luck with your search.




Thanks! Let me know your price, and maybe some pics. You can contact me via my web page, www.patzelenka.com. I swear my truss rod cover said Falcon, but I also hear what you're saying. I own a Westone bass too, so the links you had for old catalog pics from the Westone line was very nice. I will copy and paste your web link. Nice site. Keep in touch.

Greetings! I am new to the forum here, but a search I have been on has led me here. Back in the 80's, I used to own a purple finished Washburn Falcon. This guitar had one Humbucker at the bridge position, and a Kahler locking trem. I swear it was a Falcon series, but in my searches on the net, I only come across 2 pickup versions, and no Kahler, which I was led to believe at the time of sale was a standard piece of equipment on these, or at least the one I owned anyway.

The guitars I am seeing on the net are arched top also, and mine was flat. You can see a picture of me with it in my pictures section at My Space via this link: www.myspace.com/patrickzelenka

Any help or leads anyone could provide toward steering me towards another of these (I have no real expectation of finding the exact same guitar, though that would be awesome)would be highly appreciated. Hope to hear from someone soon. Thanks!!
