sorry without many pictures it would be impossible to identify

I have it on very reliable source that yours is a Yamaki made/ as for Rudy maintaining the relationship with Yamaki  well we all know that didnt last forever from what I remember from one of the other employee's from US Music was that it was the early 80's when other Japanese makers were given the opportunity to come up with proto types for Washburn as for any other productions is unknown by have some very nice made Japanese made guitars

from what I understand newer guitars are more subject to the cities regulations and that builders need to prove the supplier and age of Rosewood and ivory well that's a tough one as for the raids they went no where as they were able to show the wood was old stock as for piano's it seems that it is hard for them to determine african and indian ivory and old pre - cities so hard to say I know some have claimed to have had problems taking their guitars across the border but every musician I know just shows them the sale of when they were bought.
so an old Lyon and Healy wouldn't have any problem as they can be dated by experts its only difficult when dealing with private builders who cant prove their old stock no one knew that it would be crazy like this sorry for late response this took 2 days fingers arent working so good anymore

usually only 1 cause for top to crack from other then dropping it lack of moisture sounds like it could use some cleats to stabilize the cracks and some moisture to prevent anymore drying out.
 these guitars are of great value to those that know them as fine Japanese made instruments but most will deduct a fair sum for the cracks which run around 20 - 25 per cleat so should run around a 100$ to fix the cracks then the guitar sells for around $250-400 with case

stay safe in Texas

actually that price was the suggested retail sale price which is always way higher then what you would have put it on the floor for but never the less a beautiful guitar to say the least the last of the Yamaki line and thats all I will say on this other then good luck

late 70's to early 80's so its a 1981 but I think the top should be cedar and yes japan made more likely Yamaki

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
