Hey all, new to the Washburn world.

I found this 1979 d66 Prairie Song Custom at a pawn shop.
It's  a serious project guitar.
Bridge is pulling up
Flat top is warped at the bridge
Needs new saddle
Cracking top along both sides of fingerboard

I am currently humidifying in my sailboat.

Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / XLR output
« Last post by broz1 on April 29, 2018, 02:16:36 PM »
Hi, this is probably a dumb question to most of you... but under what circumstances/situation would I use the XLR output on my EA36?

The J6 was available 1989-2004, in Natural finish or TSB.

It's always possible someone submitted a special order. As well, a short run could have been issued through a particular retailer.

The owners of the Washburn brand have never been particularly good about record keeping, so there really hasn't been a reliable way for anyone to dig up actual build data.

(Of course, the Custom Shop kept track, but there we're talking maybe a thousand instruments a year rather than millions. Washburn's contractors (like Samick) have probably been meticulous, but probably nobody asked them to send over the files. Washburn's Customer Service was apparently pretty good until 2012 or so.)

About the only way remaining to proceed would be to find someone who owns an actual J6-TWR, & ask them to send you a photo of the soundhole label. Maybe there'd be some notation on it as to whether it was a special run or custom order (a handwritten serial number can be a tipoff). Or, heck, you could just buy the guitar. ;)

Show Us Your Washburn / Re: Washburn EA36 1993 Ltd Edition Wine Red

Ok, thanks, so I guess Washburn don't keep track of instruments that are produced under their name, maybe it's better they have Samick on the headstock instead of Washburn, along with Epiphone, Hohner, Squier etc, after looking at their site it seems half the world owns OEM guitars produced in the Samick factory. Still, who cares, unless you're in the vintage guitar market of course...

S= Samick.....the builder of the guitar

First digit of the serial number...in this case .....is the year of manufacture 5 = 1995

The archives do not carry ever color available for a particular model by the year.  If a color is mentioned in the archives, it was most likely used every year of the models production.

The archives are not definitive .....they are a starting point.
