Just want to thank Evenkeel for posting the pics. If there is anyone out there that can tell me more about it I am all ears.

Thank you to Washburn for occasionally releasing some real jewels. I love when I find something amazing that there isn't a couple dozen hanging all over the walls at the local GC.

I was still hoping someone could help me get a few pics up. I am a computer Neanderthal.

I think this one will be different from any you have seen to date..

Like I said, this damn thing can almost talk.

I have a world class Brz acoustic, this is beyond that.

No stamp no label. Just a "Made In USA" and Ser no. Starting in 06 on the headstock. Hammer and stamp style.  I would rather not say, because I do not know it to be fact. I wasn't really looking for a value, as I don't think I could duplicate its sound anywhere at any price. This mothereffer is coming to the grave. I had briefly entertained a trade up but was never satisfied. I've bought as some Nice guitars from alot of various quality builders from $100 to a few paychecks.

I will say, when I finally got around to playing the d84 it was shrill and almost painful sounding. I now get what feels almost like butterflies, an anxiousness to see what it will do next. In a wonderful way. I had thought of Washburn as some sort of inferior kids starter guitars. Not so, I was mistaken. This is the kind of guitar players in the studio argue over.

Lol I know I sound real gassed up about this, but good Lord, Washburn. This is a good one. They should revive the custom shop And build these again.

How many others are out there?

Thank you guys for all your replies. I am about as illiterate as it comes concerning computers and the directions I have recieved. Is there someone willing to let me email pics to them that could post them? I have never seen another that was even close to the features of this guitar. Ive been offered BTO Taylors, D55 Guilds and Even a Mossman and a J45 custom in trade. After swapping a day or 2 to feel out the deal I am always back to reclaim my baby knowing I have something truly special.

This guitar could talk in the hands of a gifter player. No BS.

I was told who the intended artist was, and a little story behind it. I have no way to verify those claims. If I repeated it you would likely think I am a nut job. So I'll keep it to myself for now. Lets just say, you know his name.

Looks like an Antoniotsai custom special. About a $200 to someone who wants a fancy wallhanger.

But I could be incorrect.

It was supposedly built for an artist. So it has no label. Very clean and kills my buddies' Martin  D42K. He won't even bring it out if we have a bunch of guys playing. He can't believe its a Washburn, he even tried to convince me someone built it and slapped a Washburn neck on it. (Neck headstock says made in USA)

Great features like:
Gotoh 510 gold Machines
Gold frets
Interesting Guild(?) Bridge
Bone pins
Bone nut and saddle
Tone, bass, volume- depth and a human like(truly, its kinda freaky) voice to die for.

Top solid 3D looking spruce
Excellent straight grained flame Koa back and sides
Flamey maple binding.

Can somebody please help me get pics up in this thread?
