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?


Thanks,

I just read the locked thread Lets Move Forward from Ship of Fools.

What happened? Has their been some kind of purging of some sort? And if so, why?

And what is this other forum that some posters went to?

I personally like this forum just fine. Just wondering what the problem was and what happened.

Thanks,

WBG

Probably most here know about the American brands that have been contracting with manufacturers in China. Its been a source of controversy sometimes.

Blueridge. The Johnson Carolina series. Epiphones Masterbilt line. The Guild GAD line.

I personally have a Blueridge and an Epiphone Masterbilt. And I've heard the Guilds and Johnson Carolinas are just as good.

To put it plainly, these guitars are nothing less than stunningly good for the cost. You can actually, for less than $1000, get a guitar that can compete with much MUCH more expensive guitars by makers like Martin and others.

I'm just wondering if Washburn is going this route? I have 3 Washburn guitars and love them all, but I've had them for a long time and I've sort of lost touch with what is going on with Washburn.

There was a Washburn guitar that was reviewed by Acoustic Guitar magazine maybe 3 years or so ago, and it got a very VERY good review. I noticed that the inlay on the fretboard looked exactly like the inlay on some Blueridges and Guild GADs and it got me wondering if Washburn was tapping into this option.

Thanks,

Hello there,

Thank for all the great information you are providing.

Is there anything you can tell me about my D44SW Washburn? All solid wood...spruce/rosewood. I believe I bought it around 97 or so. Crown headstock and butterfly bridge. I'm pretty sure it was introduced the same year the Appache and Cherokee where introduced.

Its a fantastic guitar. It compares very favorably to my friends D28 Martin.

(edit)

I forgot about the 1st 2 numbers of the serial number being the year it was built. It was built in 95.

Thanks,

WBG

I was reading a message board devoted to bluegrass style guitar playing, and in a thread about Blueridge guitars someone was speaking of why a particular name...Martin, Santa Cruz, Taylor, Gibson, etc...doesnt mean anything, but its the sound that counts.

Someone posted to the thread and said this...

quote:
Reminds me of a Byron Berline band performance one time. Some guys had
driven in specifically to hear Jim Fish on guitar. Between sets they rushed
up to Jim to see what kind of guitar he played and they were shocked that
he was playing a Washburn. When asked why he played a Washburn Jim said,
I dunno , I guess it's because it plays good, sounds good and I like it.


Good answer. [:D]

Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / EA20...what year?
« on: September 07, 2004, 05:22:53 AM »
Can anyone tell me how old my EA20 electric/acoustic is?

The serial number is...9110228

The reason I am asking is because my understanding is that some of these have a solid top, but others dont, and it depends on what year it was made.

I cant tell myself because the black paint covers the inside of the soundhole.

Its a super guitar, everything one could want in an electric/acoustic, and it sounds good playing it acoustically as well.

Thanks,

WBG

Hello,

I have both a Washburn acoustic(D-44), and an electric/acoustic(EA20). I really like it, but when I use it at church with the worship band I have trouble with feedback, and the only soundhole covers I can find are circular. The EA20, of course, has an oval soundhole.

Anybody know where I can get a soundhole cover for it?

Thanks,

WBG
