Vintage and Rare Washburns / Re: Vintage Washburn Identify Please

well thats what I thought keef is the most knowledgeable person in the world when it comes to pre war Washburns he actually wrote a book on the subject so its like I thought its not a real Washburn and looking back I do remember seeing a label like that once before on a pieced together old parlor some one was trying to sell on Ebay

Howdy I myself am very unsure that it is a Washburn made guitar that label looks like nothing in any of my catalogues nor does it looks right with what looks like maybe had the whole top by the neck cut out and replaced with some other piece, I have sent a message to the one person who knows a lot more about these older models but I am sure he maybe confused by the label inside and with no center spline I am thinking someone may have made the label and stuck it in to represent Washburn.
Can you tell us what else the label says and those numbers make no sense.Looks as if someone deliberately removed a name on the head of the neck.

looks as if no one left gives a s**t about the site Jim and that all the knowledge you have will go down in flames and without a site they have no understanding that they will never capture the market no matter how good the guitars are anymore like a builders those that have a site survive and don't that dont have free flowing information will disappear from the market and looks like they are going to let that happen here to bad.

think Nick is gone Doug and not sure anybody gives a rats butt anymore here can never get admin to delete spammers anymore until several days later well you would think they would spend some time fixing things especially with the big show being over and them getting great reviews at NAMM

picture of electronics could help also, the closest I can get right now is a EA-20 or a EA-40.

Doug try to sign in in the other spot not up top in the right corner but that bar that has home help search and so forth if I sign in on the top right my posts disappear but honestly I think there is only one guy left so with all his work I doubt he has much time left for this place, shame but thats life.

well what you have is a 1994 ( only made during that year) spruce top mahogany ( laminate ) b/s was one of the lower models but all that matters is that you love it I have never had an opportunity to play one so can't really tell you much more. good luck and enjoy

where the hell are they what is the point of keeping old posts that lead no where folks ask questions and there is no place for them to get the info  I realize you are just one guy webguy but dont you see that as being somewhat frustrating for those trying to help get info out there

made 1988 southern jumbo solid cedar top laminate Ovankol  mahogany S/B tortoise pickguard made between 85-92 value in excellent shape should be around $300 with case might have the W at the 12th fret

maybe they dont need the serial numbers as they are special runs for whom ever ordered them and there is that silly warranty card.  ship

not even close Tony what should have given it away was the fact that it was a limited run and they never put serial numbers on limited runs all the time looks like my headstock emblem with the same fret markers but different body heck for all its worth could very well be a sample model so as all limited edition they only made a few mine was a run of a 125
