Vintage and Rare Washburns / Mid 70's D25 DPG

Was curious if anybody else owns a D25 DPG? Think Richie Havens guitar. Wonder how many were made with the double pick guard?.

Wow, more than ten years on and the thread hasn't died yet ;)

Well, that deserves an update. I said, quite some years ago, that I didn't gig anymore. Since then, I have played a couple of shows and am actually recording this weekend... ad all with my trusty ol' B10

Since I was last on here, I have purchased a couple more basses and guitars, including the Fender Jaguar I always wanted, a Tokai Firebird (lovely guitar!) and a Gibson RD Artist. As for the basses, I purchased an Epiphone Thunderbird and then sold it on just six months later. Nowhere near as nice to play nor sound as good as my thirty year old Washburn ;)

Since I was last on here, I have also purchased a trashed Yamaha RBX200, the same as the one I had as my standby when I used to gig. That one was stolen from a show so when this one came up on eBay for about $40, I grabbed it as a project. I have refinished and rewired it and it's not a bad thing at all... but still not as good as my B10 ;)

Picked up a used Rover with spalted maple top, back and sides. I don't think these are solid wood but like the other Rovers in the lineup laminated. I'm pretty sure at least the back and sides are laminated. The top and bottom appear to be book matched and I haven't seen two spalted maples that looked the same so I think they are legit.

Here are some pix of the one I picked up today. I discovered like my first Rover, that the action for me is really high so I will be replacing the saddle with a compensated bone like my other Rover. The neck had a slight hump to it so I backed it off 1/2 turn and it is perfect. No issues with the bridge pins unlike my first which I now suspect had replacements. Sounds great, and feels good with the exception of the action which I will correct. This one also came with the spare saddle as well as shims. This puzzles me, am I way off in trying to make the action of this guitar match my other acoustics????

Just love the look of this wood...

This looks like layers of wood or am I mistaken??

I am going to sand down the saddle to drop the action some more as I find it a bit on the high side.
