Show Us Your Washburn / Re: Washburn Eagle Pro Custom???
« on: June 26, 2014, 06:42:35 PM »
Hey Forum!

Rather than learn how to use those other ways to let you see a dash of what I have I just got done making a hasty page where you can see the photos I mentioned .

www.whread.com/music

That link will redirect you to an outside site not affiliated in any way with The Washburn Forum.
The Guitars and Amps and all other items in the photos are NOT for sale.

Please respect the property of others and so not attempt to do harm at that site.

You can click on any photo and download a fairly hi resolution photo so you can look closely.

Again if you want to see some of the others I mentioned or all of them you will find an email link there so just ask and give me some time and I'll put them up there. I had thought about doing this anyway so one positive thing came from all this BS.

I have well over $100,0000 worth of Guitars. I have no need to Counterfeit an $800 guitar or perpetuate such a criminal act another may have performed?
In fact I think doing such things is just plain bad and inexcusable. And in the end it harms all of us including the counterfeiter.
Darned stupid if you ask me.

I had been a Home building Contractor. Then due to injuries  I became a Guitar/Amp/Effects locator/purchaser for 3 very wealthy collectors.
Being a polite, decent person gave me a fairly high level of success and I learned early on I do not know everything and the real World if full of things no one can imagine. Another part of that achievement as small as it was is Do Not Let Self Promoting Experts Intimidate You.
They have entirely different motivations compared to normal people. Try to get them to act better but if that is not possible stop wasting your time.
I apologize for letting off here. I just got done with heart surgery last Thursday and this is a very unnecessary stress.
No big thing but it is why I will not post here any further. All that keeps happening is 'I know it's not a Washburn because I know it's not a Washburn." With none of them advancing any shred of evidence for their position why should I submit to their perhaps ill founded demands?

For those of you who have odd. one of a kind or any other Washburn's that do not fit into he catalogs remember what Washburn said they make and made all kinds of things like that and they did not track them at all.

Post your photos and ignore the naysayers, if many do this the naysayers will retreat back under their moldy rocks.

For you naysayers - I feel your pain, I understand your hurt but I cannot tolerate the damage you attempt to do. Please consider being a bit more polite, support your statements with something more than 'I think so' and remember you are in the minority. You are louder but there are less of you.
No more postings here but maybe I have to the same thing at the other thread, so far no.
I will not submit to the tyranny of the loud and aggressive. Send me an email and we can be aggressive together in a more appropriate place than this supposedly place to express and exchange ideas.
I put mu money where my mouth is why don't you?

Goodbye Washburn Forum - it has not be a pleasure.
Wish it had.
I am sure there are a bunch of decent humans involved here and I wish I had had the chance to talk about my favorite topic - Guitars.

Oh Yeah! Almost forgot!

HAVE A GREAT DAY!

And for you derogatory experts I assume you know that Washburn no longer deals directly with people and that you would have to go thru a particular business to deal with them?

Darn weird how people with such volumes of irrefutable knowledge miss little important things like that.

I thought the last one was way too long so I violated my resolve to make only one last post here Please excuse me, I am human unlike some of you.

So rather than have you angry ones say I did not list the location of the photos I am clearly telling you the address will be in the next and last post I make her.
May my fingers fall of should I become so insane as to subject my self to this ever again.

Gentlemen and Ladies,
I have found you to be a contentious and self reinforcing group of people.
At least the few out of 100's advancing your theories.
I no longer have the Guitar or any of it's accoutrements. I clearly stated that.
As far as the posting of Bills of Sales I see no indication anywhere on the web when I search for them that people do such things.
I never claimed or indicated I was the original purchaser.
I had started to think it might be an enjoyable experience to exchange thought and experiences here.
I was wrong.
The new owner is located in Manhattan NYC and has no desire or intentions to subject himself to your style of unwarranted self assurance, attack and suppression, unsupported derogatory comments and the rest. I showed him the 2 threads regarding this on this forum.

Where did a single one of you post your original receipts?
Where did a single one of you provide support other than your opinions?
I have offered to drive to any somewhat nearby location to allow inspection of the guitar and it's provenance (the papers, identifying characteristic's etc.) prior to my selling the guitar.
I have tried to get at least some of you to consider that perhaps you are not quite perfect experts in the identification of each and every guitar Washburn ever made.
I have presented evidence written by real experts including Washburn itself which would to a logical person remove your arguments regarding parts, the overall look and style of that guitar.
Where is a single shred of any support for your position that is not simply your opinion?

It was posited by the first derogatory person that Washburn never made guitars like this yet they did as any human might ascertain should they try.
It was advanced as proof that having parts also used on other guitars was proof of being homemade  when Washburn themselves clearly say they use generic parts.
It was advanced that Washburn knows all about each and every guitar they made. Washburn clearly says they do not.

I have not on bit of doubt that if I or anyone else were to post such a thing as a receipt it would be deemed to be counterfeit and homemade.
And it would be used as a means to prove actual counterfeits are real. Why do you think you don't see them very much...

Go look at yourselves. There is no reason or positive outcome from me providing any further fodder for your acerbic spleen.
Your opinions are simply opinions. I made the mistake of treating you completely differently than you have treated me.
I gave you the courtesy of addressing your thought is a logical, written evidence manner.

And you wait to gang up until after you know I sold it. That's a very telling fact that is likely to be a very good indication of where you are coming from.

Attack someone else.

If all forums are like this no wonder so few take part in them.
 

For all you 100's of others who are reading this thread - I will make one last post where I will direct you to a place where you can see 3 of the Washburn's I still have as well as my favorite guitar a 65 Vantage as well as my 52 Les Paul (mot a reissue a 52) and my 73 Stratocaster Ash hard tail. I also have a 79 Korina Explorer, 65 Mustang, Several 65 Melody makers, 61 ES125, 79 ES335 and quite a few more. Let me know if you want to see any or all of those but be a bit decent about it.
You do catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar. For you mad dogs - this means you get more if you are a decent person.
For those of you who are quietly watching to see how all this BS turns out perhaps it may be indication that I might be a more substantial person than one who would advance a fake as real. For you  mad dogs I hope it causes you to run to the end of your chains and choke yourselves. Maybe a period of real unconsciousness might relieve you current waking unconsciousness!
Yup I am being just a dash less aggressive and nasty than you and I admit it. Why not try that part yourselves.

Hey mad dogs! This is me being a dash nasty back! So you can identify it should I lose my mind and respond to your ill motivated baiting's again. You lack style and sophistication as well as perceptive powers!

For those of you who have seen this happen before maybe you can get a bit of 'go ahead make your post' from this response.
These guys are minor league as far as they have indicated in these 'homemade counterfeit' threads.
Perhaps I m wrong but they provided not a whit of anything to demonstrate that their opinions were correct or they were in fact knowledgeable enough to advance such utterly self convinced arguments,
If you've got strange looking, out of the ordinary guitars look at how many said the nasties compared to how many were just reading.
Normal people are the majority and just because the horrible ones are so vocal does not mean the larger membership is too.
I took those photos in my living room the day the nicer fellow asked to see them. I feel that further effort to speak to the nasty ones is counter productive and sooner or later I will lose my patience with obstinate, unreasonable people and that would not be nice at all.
So anyone with a brain who is not out to do character assignation or put down something they do not have will see the same background with all photos as well as a few legendary amps I have. I have been a lucky guy and my business allowed me access to many great deals on superb guitars.
I will either follow the advice of the person about things like photobucket or post them on my own website which might be a mistake considering people who make such statements are oft times punitive and might try to crash my site but I think I can weather pretty much anything people like that can throw.
I  will be coming back here one last time to list place to go to see a small part of my collection so if anyone can answer why I could not u/l the photos. I am baffled by that part. The poor behavior is something we all run into once in a while. Let me know if you want to see any or all the others I mentioned. Please do not mistake this as an attempt to sell anything. There are places where that is appropriate and this is not one of them.

"I personally really like Washburn's and still have a number of them."
 
Nice! Which models do you own? Can you please post some pics?

How does one post a photo here?

the entire experience with forums I have is here at this one.
I am a most definite newbie.

Or you could send me a PM w/ your email, I send you the images and you post them?


I read the help which says browse to the relevant files before selecting post. Tried that. Tried just selecting them and tried selecting and clicking copy.
How big should the files be in megabytes?

I contacted Washburn regarding this guitar. They said they do not maintain records of every guitar built and there are many single guitars, experimental guitars, prototypes that never make it to production, guitars designed by buyers and other scenarios regarding this  made.
That in the past it was possible to buy directly from Washburn custom made guitars but not at present. In general those guitars were not tracked.

Washburn directed me to http://www.washburn.com/info/faq/ where I read the following quotes:

"How can I date/identify my Washburn instrument?
Washburn has used many serial number formats over the years, ranging from 4-12 characters long. The year of manufacture can

be deduced from the first few numerical characters in the serial number.

Either the first 2 digits, or the first digit, are typically used to identify the year of manufacture.

For example, 8901827 indicate the instrument was made in 1989, 1988, or 1998. You can confirm the year of manufacture by

visiting our guitar archives reference pricelists/ catalogs.

Instruments with serial numbers that have 5 or more characters are from the late 1980's-2000's

Instruments with serial numbers that have 5 characters or less are typically from the 1980's.

Instruments with serial numbers that have 4 characters are from the 1970's and early 1980's.

For instruments produced after 2010, usually the first 4 digits can indicate the year of manufacture.

There is no serial number information or tracking capability for pre-1978 models.

If the instrument does not have a serial number, it is likely a factory prototype or sample, and it is impossible to gauge

its exact age. We recommend visiting our Guitar Archives and viewing the annual catalogs to find the closest match.

Washburn maintains limited production records. Washburn can only identify instruments via email, and with a clear digital

photograph and serial number. We cannot guarantee that we are able to date your instrument."

And:
"How do I get replacement parts for my instrument?
Washburn tries to use as many standardized instrument parts as possible, to make field-service easier. Most technicians capable of performing repair work have easy access to them, via a variety of instrument parts dealers/suppliers.

For do-it-yourselfers, we highly recommend any of the following aftermarket guitar parts dealers, as they offer the most variety and stock.

Stewmac.com
Allparts.com
Guitarfetish.com
Wdmusicproducts.com

Please note that they cannot identify a part by the guitar model, just the style/measurement of the part you are looking for.

Most service technicians in the field have standardized parts readily available from the above suppliers.

In the event that the part you are looking for is specialized and unique to Washburn Guitars, please contact our Support Department at 1-800-877-6863. We may require a picture of the defective part to ensure availability."

I sold the Guitar to a person who knew exactly what it was.
I will say, now that that person owns it and does not care if I mention this here, that in addition to the neck heel markings mentioned in these posts there is a oval shaped sticker saying 'Washburn Custom" with a 5 digit serial number and what looks like a persons initials written on it on the neck pocket.

Anyone willing to do a bit of research can easily find a lot of wild looking Washburn's made in the past. Many covered with inlay, Many with rather large upper bout extensions.

I caution any person to be absolutely sure of what they say as to a particular guitars being a "real" Washburn, indeed regarding anything.
I have  never seen a counterfeit Washburn, although no doubts they are out there. Too much effort for too little return.

I personally really like Washburn's and still have a number of them.

Again please excuse my writing style and use of words.
I am a product of the old educational system and this is how many of us write and speak.
It has been interesting to communicate with you all here.
Have a Great Life!
IBM has a really good slogan, very simple and quite profound. That slogan is "THINK".

Tom do not mistake how I presented the designed to be stimulating but not designed to be nasty statements I made.
Your current position indicates that you are not catching what I am throwing towards you.
I totally believe that you personally do not think this was made by Washburn.
I also totally believe that it was.
You have not held or seen any of these guitars advertised for sale out there. And as of this moment I have found a  total of 5.
Sorry to say this but for real you missed that the ones you mentioned were 2 completely different guitars.
My only aim was to perhaps say something that would allow you to understand each and every one of us can possibly make erroneous judgments.
Especially when we are looking at photos alone. This includes me.

No doubt you are correct in that people are much more dishonest in todays world than I am accustomed to.
Which is exactly why I will not publish all the things that make me think this is a Washburn.
And I have seen a few fake guitars, almost all Fender but a few Gibson's and a very few others.

As I am not the original purchaser I can only go by markings on the guitar, one which I mentioned the others I did not, and the original purchasers paperwork.

There is no indication what so ever that this is any thing other than a Washburn Guitar.
On the other hand this and the others could be very elaborate, expensive counterfeits.
Which makes no sense at all, in general they counterfeit much more desirable, main stream guitars and they do it in the cheapest way possible.

The fact that there are others out there is a fair indication that they are real.
But not a definitive indication.

I have to make my judgment based on what I have and what I see.
As do you.
the salient point here is I actually have the guitar and documentation in my hands.
You do not but if it at all possible I am completely willing to drive a considerable distance to allow you to see things in person.
Photos are not a good thing for this purpose.

BTW - Washburn has a LONG history of doing guitars like this:
"Introduced in 1912, the model number 3150 boasted an all-pearl fingerboard, nut, saddle, tuning pegs and bridge pins, plus extensive inlay and marquetry."
and
"some of the company’s design ideas seem bizarre, others prescient. The Washburn model 804 lyre guitar had upper-body bouts that extended all the way up to the headstock. The company also produced some early doubleneck models under the American Conservatory sub-brand. A somewhat grotesquely large-bodied “Monster Bass” guitar was manufactured as well. There was no shortage of innovative ideas, a tradition that continues in the Washburn guitars of our own time. "

From Guitar World History of Washburn.

I made a living for around 10 years before I retired buying guitars for a few investors. If this is a fake it is the only one I fell for.
My habit is research something to death before I make decisions.
I cannot expect others to do the same, but I can ask that they consider what they say before they say it and try to present ideas that may show them why that is a good idea.

I do understand that long writings like this are a thing of the past for most.
Being a product of that past it is how I write. And how My words are put together.
Sorry about that!

Can you get my email from my profile? I am not very savvy about forums etc.

Tom, you win some and you lose some. I think you did answer paulawesomes original query and he was satisfied with the answer. What prompts the vitriolic wandering  replies is anybodies guess. Probably killed a sale, but satisfied a prospective buyers fact checking before he laid out a sum of money. I think you were honestly trying to help a forum member, I thought you made a conscientious effort  and I applaud you.    murph

Actually I agree with this.
 Except the Vitriolic part.
That was certainly not my aim.
All I wanted to do was to get people to consider that there are a lot of things out there and no one can possibly know about all of them.
As well as to consider there are consequences that others must deal with.

So please excuse me for seeming vitriolic, I was throwing no acid on purpose.
@ of you came up with a similar take so that is my issue and I should correct it by apologizing to Tom.
Tom I meant no harm or anything derogatory towards you.

I also see that  long posts are no the norm here, and a characterization as 'wandering' would be a fair statement about them.
So I have learned 2 things today.
Keep it short and people may well misinterpret my writings.

Sorry about that!

The guitar is indeed a Washburn.
And If you read what I wrote and remove any thoughts of retribution or nasty perhaps you might see what I was trying to do.
 Thanks!

Hey Tom!

Welll there are three.

And perhaps writing Washburn is a good idea. I have no way of knowing anything about Washburns records. And BTW neither do you.
You are making an assumption regarding those records.

Mine is in Pine Bush, NY - the one you found is in Hazelton, PA - two completely different places, 2 completely different people, 2 of the same (as you put it) art class homemade guitars. The other one I found was on Ebay in the United kindom.

Indeed there are a number of these Washburn Custom Shop guitars out there and you (who has presented yourself as some level of expert) made a flat, completely unsupported statement which was completely and utterly wrong. Despite you finding a different one than mine. Look at the photos, Tom.

It would seem your posts are indicative of a pattern here - you do not fully read things like the post I made, the ads in craigslist and eBay (or perhaps do not understand what you read).

And in no way did I indicate, mention or otherwise state that I would display the identifying characteristics on the internet.

What I did say was anyone who wants to come view the guitar can see the identifying characteristics as well as the original paperwork of the initial purchaser.

What you are interpreting as upset is an attempt on my part to not come to a conclusion regarding your mental abilities.

I am being polite and direct while still maintaining a connection with the world outside my own brain.

Being as I do not know you and have never seen you I cannot make any clear judgments regarding you on any level.

You, on the other hand, do not seem to have any trouble at all making erroneous statements and forming incorrect opinions.

You may come to my home or meet me within 50 miles and afterwards  you can personally apologize to all the people you misinformed. After all it was you who plainly and clearly stated you had found my guitar on eBay  when you did not - you who in writing said it was a homemade guitar. I wish I knew someone who could do those inlays and not charge an arm and 2 legs for it. Another thing you missed.

I have no desire whatsoever to take away the attention and position you hold here in this forum. In fact you probably deserve it.
Which is the reason I am attempting to get you to consider that perhaps you do not know everything and maybe you might use a dash of caution before you embark on another condemnation of someone's guitar that you have only seen in photos. No doubt fools make counterfeits but why in the world would anyone make such a completely different looking guitar as a counterfeit? That would be incredibly stupid.

What I am attempting to do is get you to do some actual thinking instead of jumping to unsupported conclusions.

If you are giving another person advice you had better be sure it is correct advice.

or Perhaps you do not care - there is no way for me to be able to know that.

Just like there is no way for you to be able to know that my guitar is not a Washburn.

I hope you do not interpret my direct and logical writings as upset, just like I won't interpret your response as a means to continue your status on this Forum.
And do not mistake my saying 'seems' or the like as a veiled insult - I simply do not know and it is possible that you lack the level of skills you present on this forum.
It is quite apparent that you possess skills.

COME ON OVER! You will find me to be an easy to deal with, honest person. And I like visits from other guitar players!

Hey Tom!

Not upset at all.
Just pointing out you missing that there are at least 3 of these guitars out there.
You quite plainly stated you had found the same guitar.
Mine is in Pine Bush, NY - the one you found is in Hazelton, PA - two completely different places, 2 completely different people, 2 of the same (as you put it) art class homemade guitars.

Indeed there are a number of these Washburn Custom Shop guitars out there and you (who has presented yourself as some level of expert) made a flat, completely unsupported statement which was completely and utterly wrong.

wow that was easy.  other than the name it is not a washburn.     http://forums.washburn.com/index.php/topic,22465.msg147128.html#msg147128

I am the owner of the Guitar that started this thread.

I live in Pine Bush, NY.

The fellow who is selling on eBay is from Hazelton, PA, 134 miles away from me.
This person is not me and the guitar is a different guitar.

The guitar you gave the eBay link for is not my guitar!!!

Thank-you for demonstrating that there is at least one other of these Superb Guitars out there!

Perhaps there are things you do not know about?

In fact I found a third listed in the UK...

Hey!

This is not a homemade guitar.
How do I know?
I'm the guy with the mate to this guitar.
I did not know there were 2 of them, there may be more.
I got mine from the fellow who placed the factory order.
For all I know it was him that gave the idea to Washburn.

I admit to what I do not know about.

A smart guy once said long ago, 'there are more things in the world than you can think of'.
Consider that.

Incredible how you fellows who have never seen the guitar and know nothing about it can come to the conclusion the guitar is homemade.

It would be quite an accomplishment to produce a guitar like this in a factory let alone home.

Aside from the standard Washburn USA markings there is other proof that the guitar is not homemade which I will show to anyone who comes to view the guitar.

I assume you do understand that a custom order might be something like say different pickups or might be something like a completely unique guitar and everything in between.

So before you BRAINIAC GURU's out there advance a false and completely unsupported statement like 'homemade' perhaps you might think about how big the world is, how many things are in that world and how much you do not know about.

Come on Over and take a Look before you make more false, misleading and incorrect statements.

Next time it might be your uncommon guitar that some unthinking person is condemning.
Think about it.

CMI, KAMICO and the rest of the Chicago company's names (Washburn is a part of this) have been producing a wide variety of music items for a long, long time.
They did and do a lot of different things.
Some are well known and some are not.
Some people know about some things, others know different things, some things are known by very few people, some things are known by many people.
That's how the world works...

Dang!

Forgot to mention:

Many Washburn USA made in Chicago have the same bodies as Ibanez and Hamer (and others) AND they use Gotoh Tuners and other parts.

Does that mean all Washburn's that have those bodies, parts and other stuff found on other guitars are all homemade?

Just come on over and take a look!
Learn something, expand your mind, think! Your head is not just a hat holder!

Hey!

This is not a homemade guitar.
How do I know?
I'm the guy with the guitar.
I got it from the fellow who placed the factory order.

A smart guy once said long ago, 'there are more things in the world than you can think of'.
Consider that.

Incredible how you fellows who have never seen the guitar and know nothing about it can come to the conclusion the guitar is homemade.

It would be quite an accomplishment to produce a guitar like this in a factory let alone home.

The bridge parts are Asian manufacture and can be bought from a number of sources. Indeed they are on a couple of Ibanez but they can be bought by anyone (including companies) and put on any guitar. Guitar manufacturers buy their parts from many different suppliers . There is no law that says when a part is used on one model guitar it cannot be used on another model guitar.

Aside from the standard Washburn USA markings there is other proof that the guitar is not homemade which I will show to anyone who comes to view the guitar.

I assume you do understand that a custom order might be something like say different pickups or might be something like a completely unique guitar and everything in between.

So before you BRAINIAC GURU's out there advance a false and completely unsupported statement like 'homemade' perhaps you might think about how big the world is, how many things are in that world and how much you do not know about.

Come on Over and take a Look before you make more false, misleading and incorrect statements.

Next time it might be your uncommon guitar that some unthinking person is condemning.
Think about it.
