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

Hello,
Thanks for your reply.
It's strange, because the Washburn archive catalogs indicate that Wine Red (WR) was only made in 1993, in 1995 it only states Neutral (N). Did you deduce the date of manufacture from the serial number? If so can you tell me how?

I know that this was an older post but wanted to clarify the fact that the USA Washburn electrics are actually made in Cincinnati. I used to work in the production dept in Chicago so I have a lot of strong emotional ties to that facility and the guys and girls who made Washburns and Strandbergs during the last five years of the plants operation.  I have played, fixed and owned a good number of stringed instruments and there is something that you can in the first ten seconds of playing an instrument, whether it is special.  The Cinci Washburns have that vibe where you sit down with them, unplugged, and it's an "oh yeah" moment.  The Cinci guitars have that thing where you can feel the neck resonating with the body...unplugged. They are joy to play.

Hi

Just bought a Washburn USA Mercury off eBay and the truss rod doesn't seem to adjust.  There's a TRC on the headstock but cant for the life of me see what's inside, there is also a flat head screw at the heel that just rotates.  It looks like the truss rod may come out all-together if I continue to turn anti-clockwise, and turning clockwise does nothing, it just rotates.

The guitar has a few issues other than this as well, but is potentially a beauty if I can get this sorted

Anyone had one of these?  Any ideas?

Cheers

Discuss Basses and Bass Playing / Re: Washburn Wing Bass

I finally Acquired my Bass from the States. I got it in 1979, made in 1978 apparently. I am trying to find details of the Serial Number on the back of the Bass ( where neck meets body). Hopefully I can attach my pic of the serial plate. If you know or can point to a place that will give info about the bass, I would appreciate it. CL800247 is on the face plate. Cannot seem to attach the photo.

Hi all,

Just joined the site so thought I'd post a few pics of my EA36. Apparently Washburn only produced this colour in 1993, if someone knows any different then I'd love to hear from you because I know little about it's history. Serial number is S5087214.

Hollowbody & Jazz Series / Washburn J6 in red finish-does it exist ?
« Last post by larryl on April 26, 2018, 11:15:02 AM »
I posted this question in another section of this forum,  but this area seems more appropriate.

It may seem odd to request a certain finish in a guitar, but I have been lusting over an L5 Wes Montgomery style guitar, and I think at some point I had seen one in a red finish, which I really like.   I just joined this forum today, but I have been playing guitar for over 55 years, owned a lot of different , but never a Washburn, but I keep reading great things about them.   Any help would be appreciated.   Thanks in advance.

Sounds odd probably to request a specific color in a guitar, but I have the lust for one of these jazz guitars, Wes Montgomery models, in a glossy red finish.   I thought I had seen one at some point somewhere, but I havent been able to locate one.   Could someone tell me if this guitar exists in this finish, and even better, if so, does anyone have one they would be interested in selling me.   Thanks...first time poster here and just joined the forum, but have been playing guitar for over 55 years.
Thanks in advance.
