PLEASE READ MY PREVIOUS POST TO CATCH UP. SOME SAY IT DOESNT EXIST. ONLY 2 WASHBURN DOCUMENTS MENTION IT. I will post a pic of both. Ive been searching for over a year and cannot find anything. if someone can shed some light that would be great.

Its very high quality craftsmanship, no details overlooked. Solid mahogany neck thru body, solid spruce top. All gold hardware right down to the cover screws and strap buttons. Neck is stout and has a "scarf joint" or "Spanish Luthier's Joint" between neck and peg head (you can see in one of the picks) which is absent on all the other Washburn solid body classical guitars. The finish is mesmerizing and the color of the top is a vibrant yellow/gold, not cherry sunburst like one document says, or natural like the conflicting document say. I know its this model because the serial number starts with 94 and that's the only year it was attempted to be manufactured, by the statement on the one document.
I have search everywhere on the guitar, but besides the Washburn logo and serial number, no other marking exist. the best feature of the body is the dark rosewood? binding around the front edge. Its radiused instead of a sharp edge. It separates the colors brilliantly. Ill give some more info shortly'

It has no scuffs, dents, dings, or scratches. The finish is incredible. I cant find the latin American gentlemen I purchased it from last year to try and get more info.
if you have any more info on this model please let me know.

Last year I was looking on ebay for some of the older Washburn solid body electric classical guitars, just one to gig. Nothing to be noteworthy, just look decent and play well. After 35 years of playing I've always enjoyed working in classical guitars to the show. I play classic/new country mix. I currently have 4 Washburn guitars and 1 Taylor. So I see this new listing pop up for this  1994 Washburn SBC-70 solid body classical/electric, on the west coast. Based on the description, it appeared to be a Hispanic fellow selling it for his brother for some reason. It seemed he was saying it was un-played. Not much else. Asking $400. So I made an offer and he accepted. Then he sent me a message saying how much his brother had loved that one best, like maybe something happened to him. Then he sent me a list of records and musical works that his brother used this guitar on, as a studio musician for hire. So he wasn't saying it was u played, but only used for studio work. But I gotta say, when I got it it seemed like is was clear coated just yesterday, no scratches or dings. Perfect. I've never seen this combination of woods and transparent colors before. So it's never left the house. I found another one to gig. But does it reall exist? I've search months to get info. No pics on Wasburn sites, or images on Internet as existing. Just a small blurb in a Washburn vintage page. It was only made in 1994. My serial# starts with 94 so I guess that corresponds.  It's hands down the best classical guitar I've everplayed. Lowest action ever with no fret buzz, and fret board and frets are curved equal to an acoustic or electric neck. With current electrectronics, I can make it sound equivelant  my Taylor, yet with spec nylon strings. Which enables me to footswitch between a classical and acoustic sound. Should I gig it or not? And why is there no other info? I feel like I'm in the twilight zone. I can post pics if someone can help.
