I don't know who tags them. I guess someone doesn't like the truth. I'll make no more posts. Have a good day.

You are right ship, and keel. I enjoy Washburn guitars, but when you try to sell, even custom shop instruments, that's hard to do. At this price, it turns me off. Especially when I read where a competitor introduces a new model jumbo, hand built in the USA, with all solid woods, with hard case, shipped for $1499. I'm glad I don't get gas anymore. Haven't since I ordered  necks, bodies, pickups, and all the parts to build my own electrics. Been thinking about buying a kit, and build an acoustic. I built a wood workshop before I retired.

Did they make Rockmans in 1981?

You did notice that this post is almost 8 years old.

Since you are going to buy anyone, get one with electronics already installed. There are some decent classicals available that are reasonably priced. Just check locally. You might find something that meets your requirements. Good luck.

Are you talking about a modern classical, or a conventional classical. If it's a conventional classical, it will have to be one that clips in the bottom of the soundhole, and goes behind the guitar, and around the neck. One similar to what Willie Nelson uses. Just Google "Classical guitar straps. Good luck.

You said wide, so you must be talking about the 1/4" wide compensated saddles on the older series. You will have to have one made. The pickup is probably one of the Barcus Berry pickups. Not sure that I would change it. I would get a 2nd opinion on that. I had to put a replacement in one I had, and had trouble finding one in the early 90's Get one made out of bone. I wouldn't change the nut, unless it is giving trouble.

Do you have any numbers on it? Show a picture of the neckblock. Are you saying it's a guitar built by DB?

I can burn CDs on my desktop, though I've never done it. It has a burner. I just thought a built in one would be better. I want something that will hold 8-10 songs in its memory. And it has to be real simple to use.

It's not really rare, Dugly. I have a WM200. I paid more than I should have. They are good, well made guitars. Just not big sellers. Even though they had a high MSRP, a lot of them sold for 300-400 dollars on ebay, as leftovers. There were 3-4 different models, with different pickup configurations.

What I was asking about in the original post, is, does anyone have any experience with the recorders that I could use to record 8-10 songs, then use the built in CD burner to burn a disc.

I think I've read some reviews at Harmony Central.

Someone stated a few years ago that all one needed to do for warranty was to keep the paperwork showing where purchased, to be sure it was from a dealer. Maybe their headquarters are in Canada, since Washburn was sold a couple of years ago.

Guitar Center and Musicians Friend are owned by the same people, along with 3-4 other online franchises.

First, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone.      Now, a question. I ask it here, as there isn't a record section on the website. I've been thinking about buying a small recorder. Just to play around with, and maybe make a few CD's for friends. I would like to record just the guitar, and my voice. Something along the lines of some of Johnny Cash's last sreies of recordings. I've been reading reviews of some of the different brands, but don't really know that much. Have any of you used a recorder that will give a quality finished product? There are some that will burn the CD after you have finished. Thanks in advance for any replies.
