General Discussion / Re: Trying to find out info. Help!
« on: August 05, 2018, 08:16:06 PM »
A quick Google search is showing a lot of hits in South America and one in South Africa.  My best guess is that this was an export only model for the international market.  Haven't been able to track down materials, but most likely laminate spruce top/mahogany sides and back.  Can you see the serial # through the soundhole?  That'll at least let us figure out when it was made.

Dug, how much larger is the WG26S than the WSJ60?  The size is really a determining factor for me because of my stature.  A dread size or comparable is going to be too large for me to play comfortably. 

I recently tried one of the new D'Angelico guitars, the Delancey model.  Its an all mahogany cutaway dread.  I expected the normal all-mahogany low end, and was completely blown away at how nice a full range sound it has.  I'd buy one in a heartbeat, but even just trying it out, it was apparent that it was far to large for me to play comfortably for any length of time.  The size is one of the reasons that I bought the WMJ11s.

Good to hear Dug.  I was also wondering if anyone had any experience with the WSJ60.  I've been eyeing that for a while and might have to take the plunge on it.

Dug, pulling up the warranty info with the one B-stock item I saw at WMS, it looks like it should still apply, since they are an authorized dealer.

Show Us Your Washburn / Re: Help Identifying WA45CE

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

It appears that this guitar has a laminate spruce top, laminate catalpa back and sides, a maple neck with rosewood fingerboard.  It seems to be an exclusive run for the South American market, as the only listings I could find for it were two shops in Santiago, Chile.  Washburn normally doesn't put special runs like this on their website.  Hope this helps!

Based on what I can find, this has a select spruce (laminated) top and laminated mahogany back and sides.  Tuners are Grover-style diecast.  Mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard.  It looks like this was made specifically for the mass-merchandise stores (Guitar Center, Musicians Friend, Music and Arts, Music 123, Amazon), which is why the website has no info.  Hope this helps!

Based on an old post from here that I found, if its the volume pot, it should be 500K.

Welcome to the forum!

The D10SCE is an older model, which is why you won't find it in the current listings.  It is a solid top as denoted by the S after the model number.

Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / Re: Nitro or Poly

I'm pretty sure that all new Washie acoustics are poly finish.  You generally have to pay a premium these days to get a nitro finish.

The only thing I can think of is to make sure your nut is cleanly cut for the G string.  It may be getting hung up there and that might throw your intonation off.

BTW, welcome to the forum!

Kenn, welcome to the forum!

Check out this link:  http://www.vintagewashburn.com/Acoustic/JimSmithCollection5.html  and scroll about halfway down.  This looks like what you have:  a Style 210 mandolin.

As far as polishing the wood, my suggestion would be don't.  Same with the metal.  If you feel it needs some cleanup, the best thing would probably be a slightly damp soft cloth.  With an instrument of this age with the type of lacquer used, anything else may damage it.

BTW, that is a beautiful instrument!

  I have a couple of Chinese Epiphones that are stunning sounding guitars.

I have two Epiphones:  a MIC Dot, and a MII Thunderbird bass.  Both are excellent, and, along with my WMJ, I have spent less than $700 for all of them combined, and bought every one brand new.  I could not buy a new MIA Gibson or Fender for that amount of money, and I'm more than happy with my equipment.

That looks like the Baby Jumbo models that were available for a bit.  I haven't seen one of the Baby Jumbos in person, but I love the shape and would like to find one of these myself.

Got to try one of these yesterday, and I completely agree with you on the sound.  Its not particularly loud, which I think is a function of the all-lam construction, but it does have a nice balanced tone to it.

I use Imageshack and have had good luck with it.
