Vintage and Rare Washburns / Re: Info on 1980 D50
« Last post by Prairiesong81 on April 08, 2019, 10:54:36 PM »
Single coil, it is a 1980 D50S; solid spruce top, but the back and sides are not solid. I have the same guitar which I purchased and you can see it here https://reverb.com/item/12253391-super-rare-1980-washburn-d-50s-ohsc-yamaki-made-in-japan-killer-ebony-fretboard-bridge-prosetup with a full description. I had a photo of the Washburn catalog showing it with description but I can't find it on my computer now. Yours is the only other one I've ever seen. Great guitar, I think they only made it one year because I still have my original 1981 catalog and it isn't listed there. Ciaou.

Well, I hope I can get assistance here. I seek for a person who was awarded by the scholarship. I have a possibility to win a scholarship for studying at Georgetown University. However, I need to write an introductory essay. I would appreciate if someone shares the contacts of a reliable scholarship essay writing service.

General Discussion / Re: First guitar (Washburn WD10S). Peer review needed.

Well, though you're here to sneak in a click link, & it's possible you stole the question from some previous post, I'm going t take it at face value, because someone might benefit.

FWIW: the WD-10S is the more recent version (post-2010) of the D-10S. Though I prefer the earlier Washburns, I have no reason to think the newer ones are any less worthy.

How is it that you ordered a guitar online... but didn't have it SHIPPED TO YOU? :o

Because it's a wood (not plywood) top, the 10S tends to hold its value very well over the years. However, if it were me, I'd buy a used one, because then (should I eventually sell it) I'd probably made back what I paid, maybe a bit more. They're usually $150-$200.

An acoustic guitar sounds better as you play it. Some say this is because the adhesives & finish "settle in," losing the last of their solvents & becoming more solid, so contributing to the tone rather than damping it. Other say it's because the wood is still slowly curing, and the vibrations loosen up the wood's cells. Both might sound superstitious, but I've seen lab (materials engineering) studies that seem to support both. In any case, my experience is that a much-played guitar usually does sound better, AND this is most pronounced in guitars that have a higher wood content.

Another reason to buy a used guitar: it's probably had some basic adjustment done to it already, so is more likely to be ready to play "right from the box." While a new higher-end ($1,000+) guitar is probably ready to go, most buyers (especially beginners looking for a bargain) would rather save $20 than have a playable guitar. ::) It's NOT uncommon that a new "bargain" guitar needs to have the nut slots lowered (or the nut changed completely) AND the trussrod adjusted AND the bridge height adjusted AND intonated. A real guitar shop can do that stuff for $40-$100, or you can learn to do it yourself (which often means some damage). Trust me, though: decent adjustment is the difference between a guitar that's "mostly playable, more or less) and one you WANT to play.

Nothing wrong with tuning to a chord -- ask Dave Grohl or Tony Iommi. However, open tunings generally aren't versatile, & it's much more difficult to do stuff like minors, 7ths, sus4. And while power chords are GREAT for the 2nd guitarist in a metal band, it gets old fast with an acoustic.
