Hi all
Just wanted to let everyone on the forum know that I am no longer employed at U.S. Music Corp. There have been some fun times here on the forum and some frustrating time. I will try to remember only the fun times.
Mike Beatty aka browndog.

Always a good idea to check the FAQ's. There is an answer to your question here.

Sorry but that is not a genuine Washburn. Looks like a really poor attempt at capitalizing on the Washburn name.

Be forewarned, Anton Gear is NOT an authorized Washburn dealer.

The WG780 was an export only model so it is probably going to be very hard to find in the States. To be honest, this is the first I've seen this model. I had no idea we used the Stephen's Extended Cutaway on this model.
In the past, we did use the SEC on the EC series of electrics and their acoustic counterparts the DC's. These were actually the first guitars to use the SEC.

This discussion is over. Once again, if you have a personal issue with another forum member, take it up in private. Do NOT post it in a public forum where it will only serve to foster ill-will.

Thanks guys. Hopefully one of the other experts mentioned will be able to provide some clarification.
My quandary is as follows
1. according to Hubert's book the label places it c. 1906/7 - 1915
2. The serial number places it between 1889 and 1897. Unless you count the renumbering which occured in 1907. However, the new serial numbers started with an A.

My guess is that it is a Style 115 built after 1907 and it is an exception to the serial numbers started with A rule.

I've been asked to help ID this guitar and I'm stumped as the label and serial number seem to contradict each other based on the information in Hubert's great book. I'm hoping some of our resident experts can jump in and lend me a hand.




Label with serial number.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Try this

Ramblin' please contact the dealer from whom you purchased the guitar. They will work with the UK distributor.

Noone is side stepping responsibility. As I stated yesterday, anyone wishing to return their instrument for evaluation is welcome to contact us for a Return Authorization number. To the best of my knowledge, no one has done so yet. As far as what will be done, that will be detrmined on an individual case basis. We need to actually see the problem before we can solve the problem.

wrmurphy -- I was unaware that your issue was unresolved. PLease contact me in private and we will take care of you.

Thank you

I've spoken to the product manager and we've looked in to this issue. The fret wire that is used on the R316 is the same fretwire used on many of our other products manufactured in the same factory and we've had no problem with them. As well, we've had no complaints about premature fret wear other than here on the forum. That being said, any forum member who has had fret wear within 6 months of the date of purchase can contact us for an RMA and we will evaluate teh guitar for possible repair. Within the USA, please call 1-800-877-6863 outside of the US, please contact the distributor in your country.

Thank you

I have sent you an e-mail response.

I agree that it's probably a WP90 the only catch is that the WP90 had a Rosewood fingerboard. There was also a WP100 model which did have an Ebony fingerboard but it also had a coil tap. So this is definitely not a WP100. The WP90 had a suggested retail of $1099.90 that year.
