In my opinion you sound like a PRIME candidate for our new baby jumbo guitar.

Very, very sweet playing, comfortable to play.  It was designed for just the situation you are describing.

I have heard so much about Washburns.  I have never played one, don't have a dealer where I live, but I want to know from all you Washburn what the appeal is? You are certainly a dedicated bunch, like all guitars have their devotees. But as a group, the Washburn players are very loyal, as a rule.

I have a Larravee Dread, and a Godin Parlour, but looking to add a smaller body Cutaway for stage and voice accompaniment.  Any good suggestions from the Washburn lineup, before I head south to find a dealer?

Thanks all...

Based on what you're looking for, anything in our EA (electric acoustic) series should fit well, depending on your tastes.

EA20SDL (the old unplugged classic redone)


They set the standard for good live acoustic performing guitars many years ago (the EA series)

I did find an older Washburn catalog a day or two after I replied to you (this is Stacy in service).  On the HB30S, the S does indeed stand for sycamore.  Hope that settles it once and for all.


Probably the WI36.  It's patterned in the same body/pickup style.

There was a US made washburn around 1993 that was almost a clone, The LT82 and LT92 if you can get a hold of one used, they're great guitars. (Laredo series)

I play vinci strings exclusively and love them.  It's all a matter of preference.  I have a J3 with 11 guage vinci's stock, and it sounded flawless out of the box?

Retail list price was $549.90.

There is no way to estimate actual value on a used guitar, as there are too many variables to consider.

Sharp frets are one of the more common flaws in budget guitars.  You could take it to a washburn service center and have them round them off a bit, return it to Target, or call us and we'll set up a return authorization to repair/replace it.

hey guys, new here.

i picked up this guitar from target because i needed a knockaround...

plays decent enough. i'll throw on some d'addarios and see.

BUT the problem i'm having is sliding up and down the neck...anyone have a problem with sharp frets? a little abrasive on the fingers...

any advice, stacy??

The bluebook I have shows the MG52 as being made in 1992.

The retail list price on the guitar was $430

Yes, it's likely Korean.  There should be a letter in the serial number, that would help a lot in determining the country of origin.

Your guitar is a 2004 model.

I'm pretty confident a left handed version of that guitar has not been made.

Officially, yes.

You need to use a dummy 1/4 plug for the XLR jack to function properly.

Many of the newest imported guitars have a symbol on the back of the neck that looks like a garbage can with an X through it.  The first thing I though when I saw it was that it must be a 2nd or blem, but that is not the case at all.  

The garbage can sticker is a new requirement for the ROHS standards.  Basically,  what it means is that there are no hazardous materials inside of the guitar.  

This is a European requirement that takes effect this year.  It won't be long before it's also a US requirement.  You will start seeing the garbage can symbol on a lot of products

The CE mark is a mandatory European marking for certain product groups to indicate conformity with the essential health and safety requirements set out in European Directives. The letters 'CE' are an abbreviation of Conformité Européenne, French for European conformity. The CE mark must be affixed to a product if it falls under the scope of the approx. 20 so called 'New Approach' Directives. Without the CE marking, and thus without complying with the provisions of the Directives, the product may not be placed in the market or put into service in the fifteen member states of the European Union and Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. However, if the product meets the provisions of the applicable European Directives, and the CE mark is affixed to a product, these countries may not prohibit, restrict or impede the placing in the market or putting into service of the product. Thus, CE marking can be regarded as the products trade passport for Europe.

The CE mark is not a quality-mark. First, it refers to the safety rather than to the quality of a product. Second, most quality markings are voluntary opposite to the CE marking, which is mandatory for the products it applies to. CE indicates conformity with mandatory European safety requirements. European conformity is certified by following clear and understandable procedures, the so-called ‘conformity assessment procedures’.

You are mostly correct.  The model number is a
X50PROZTBL (trans blue)

List price in our computer system shows as $899.90.

Really nothing odd about it, x50 Q-quilted, PRO-SD pickups, TBL-transparent blue, made in 2003, listed $849. Price you paid is fair in my opinion considering quality. Enjoy it!!!

They guys in here are right, it's either a 84 or 88.  I've never even seen a left handed model honestly.  Congrats.
