Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / Which model???
« on: November 25, 2004, 02:25:02 AM »
Or you could try for that 56 on e-bay, not that I recommend buying a guitar on e-bay. Make sure the warranty is valid and that they will give you a trial period. Make sure it is not a second or a blem. At music 123, you can send a guitar back if you don't like it and they will pay the back shipping. Oh, and according to the Washburn folks, the rosewood on the 56 is AAA rated.

Well... I just ordered a WD48S, Rio Grande rosewood. Washburn folks assured me it IS solid wood with tone similar to other rosewoods. I played a WD32SW, closeout at a shop, $200, just OK. I believe the 200 & 300 are a satin (dull finish) Out of those I would go for the 200, rosewood. My WD48S will arrive on the 27th and I will post a review here. I first ordered a WD52SW, mahogany, no bass, sent it back. Another here played 2 different 52's. Also no bass. According to the Washburn folks the Rio Grand rosewood on the 48 is rated AAAA, a very good grade of wood. Should sound good. We'll see.

Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / Washburn D-15N - value?
« on: November 23, 2004, 02:26:50 AM »
I've got a '87 D15M, same thing except mahogany top. Worth lots to me cause I like the sound and it plays great and I can take it out of the house instead of my good ones. I'd never sell it. It's maybe worth $150 on the street. Have a pro set yours up w/ bone or tusk saddle and play it.

Saddle is straight and flat and fits snugly. The thing just has no bass. It's gotta be just this one guitar. Sounds like folks are happy with the 54's and 56's. I think I'm just going to send this one back. Damn, it's such a beauty too. I really like it. Just no bass! Oh well.

Hi Brian, that's what I'll do. What are you thinking about the D15? Freak meaning good or bad? Thanks, Pike

Hi Brian, I'm afraid to unstring and mess with it. If I scratch the headstock or something, it will be a giant deduction if I send it back (which I probably will do). As it stands, my Washburn D15M gives me a nice mahogany sound, though not as loud as the WD52SW in the upper end. You know, it sounds like you may be right. Now, if curiousity doesn't kill the cat. I'll carefully remove the bridge and let you know. Seems the fair thing to do.

Hi Jeff, it's mahogany. Maybe it will open up. It plays great! Great action, low with no buzzing. No dead spots.I do think it is worth the money. I wouldn't want to discourage others from buying one because for 525 bucks it's a nice guitar. Pike

My WD52SW arrived today. OK guitar. Very beautiful, but just OK. Worth the 525 bucks I guess. Pike

Yea, I see he has another WD18SW. I have an '87 D-15M, all mahogany, ply sides and back. Not sure about the top, plays great, good mahogany tone.

Oh, bizare-guitar on e-bay! OK, missed that. Shoot. But that's OK, I still wanted the mahogany. Got Music123 to sell for $525 including a Washburn hard shell case. Not a bad deal. They had 2 WD52SW's left and none of the 54's. I imagine they will all be gone before too long if they sound as good as you guys say they do. I talked with one of the Washburn guys about them and he was very confident in the sound of all three of the WD-SW's. after hearing your guy's replies, I'm psyc'ed! Thanks

Well, I ordered a WD52SW. I prefer the mahogany tone for finger picking. Music123 W/ case $525. It has the ebony fretboard over the SW300 and one more fret. I'll let you know how it is. Thanks
