Messages - KC-600

Pages: [1]
I have a Washburn KC-600 witch I bought new in 1999 in Europe. It was made in Korea with serial number 99030113. I cannot find it in any of the catalogs or in the archive pages. All hardware is in black chrome. It has 3 pickups in a SSH setup (W411, W412, W423) and a licensed Floyd rose tremolo.

All Korean made Chicago series have a KC-xx model format and were build between 1989-1992. This has three digits. Can it be a reissue of the original Chicago series or a model for Export Market? I also fail to find any documentation on W400 stock pickups. The closest match from 1999 would be the WR/WG series, but still... not the same. The headstock has a characteristic concave arch on the bottom. Can someone help me identify it?

Unfortunately the link to the 1997-1998 Washburn Catalog (pdf, 173mb) is now broken, but a few months ago it was working and I couldn't find a match.
