Show Us Your Washburn / Any info on the BT-20

Any info on this model?

I just bought a BT-3 that was made in Indonesia.  The body is noticeably smaller than the BT-4....(about 96% the size of a BT-4)  Anyone know if the size difference is common to all BT-3s or just the Indonesia built ones?

Any idea where I can buy the N-4 Authentic with the spec's. as shown currently on the Washburn website?  I can't find a retailer that carries it.

I've had a few people e-mail me about this.....

The Custom Shop, as far as I know, closed last Summer... {2015}.  I believe all Washburn guitar models are now imported......none made the USA.

I had the privilege of having 2 guided tours at the Custom Shop over the years.  I met many skilled artisans....U.S. Music Corp. attracted the very best in the business to work at the Custom Shop.

With large music retailers struggling and dwindling sales across the entire industry, it was inevitable that this had to happen.....

I, for one, will sorely miss the USA made Washburn product line.

I would suggest:
  History of Washburn Guitar: Pre-war Instruments Styles by Hubert Pheijsier....

It is the go to reference for Washburn instruments made before 1940.  I think it's about $ 30.00 new at Barnes & Noble and would compliment your instrument nicely.  You should be able to pinpoint, within a year or two, the production date of your guitar using the hand written serial number and sticker style.

I don't have my copy with me at this time.....I'm on the road.....but maybe someone else, on the forum, can look it up.  I'd still recommend you purchase a copy and keep it with your guitar.

Nice work!  I really like the T-Bird series...
