yep it a Washburn a 1911 model 115 ( later model ) or depending on size of the guitar ( could be  217 or 320 ) now you must tell about a Canadian acoustic blues player west coast or east coast

no pictures so cant really tell you anything

No I am sure that it could very well be made in 97 if they had some that were not finished in 1996 its like some of John Stover USA made guitars were finished after he had left the custom acoustic shop and the only way to tell if John had put them together was he signed the top of his made guitars as for the extra bracing well some say that that was an old wives tale, as far as I have seen and been told they were always the same price with dealer fluctuations of course, finding ANOTHER may prove difficult when I was able to play I was searching for all of the Dana and Tacoma made Washburns and had difficulty purchasing any ( mostly because those that owned them would only part with them for the right amount of money ) but the hunt can be fun. ship

I do believe that these were only made in 1996 and yep great guitar blue book says around 450-525 in excellent shape and your are right about the pickguard should be tortoise it should have a crown logo if memory serves me.These were made by Tacoma and are very playable guitars with great sound.

Well for the very few left around here I am signing off as my medical condition no longer allows me to play anymore and with my recent TIA I cant trust myself to get all things right when giving info on Washburns old and newer. your ship of fools.........

simple every time I sign in it shows the site as not secure simple enough and no its not my system because all of my other sites show as secure Washburn is the only one that doesnt

be very careful as it seems they ARE NOT  spending a few dollars to secure the site anymore for the last 2 weeks this site shows as non secure.ship
