Acoustic Basses / New to Washburn, Basses, and this forum
« Last post by cut a rug on Today at 02:11:54 AM »
I just came across a black AB-20, white trim, and rosewood fingerboard. Serial #1990111507
I'm thinking this was made in 1990. Is this right? It has the Equis 300 equalizer, and has a great voice.
Easy to play looks good, from the front, and easy on the wallet.
When you turn it over, you see the issues. It looks like the p.o. tried to use it to hammer nails and chop wood.
The amp plug was held in place with a car fender washer and black tape. One of the sound board braces is loose one one end.
Then there are cracks and holes in the lower bout and bottom edge.
I may be crazy, but the repairs is part of the reason I wanted this instrument. Luthiers are becoming fewer and further between.
Besides, as much abuse as this one has been through, it needs a lot of TLC beause it's still singing.
May have to personalize it with some carving.
Woodwork is one of my hobbies.

Vintage and Rare Washburns / Washburn?

Does anyone know if Washburn made a Sterling model? I purchased a guitar a few years ago from an elderly lady who said the guitar was her fathers. On the head is a decal that clearly says Sterling but the rest is missing or smudged. I've tried to post pics but haven't had any luck at this point. Any help in identifying would be great. Thank you

The content of the site has better resolution, but access is still not as fast as it should, then it should prevent spam.

Supposed to be six Washburn USA-made models --

There seem to be many used N4 around for less than $2,000. You could find a nice-looking one, then have it properly adjusted by a luthier (or at least a professional guitar technician).
