I remain puzzled as to how three of these have managed to hit the market at approximately the same time. ??? When I posted that alert here, it was the first time I'd even consciously noticed the variant, & I've been studying the Mavericks a little for about five years now.

So, call it an early 1994, then? That's exciting because the Mav BTs were officially launched in the 1997 pricelist, having appeared in the 1996 list but as the"Billy T" line. Lacking solid info from Washburn, it appears we can push the family origin back a whole two years. :)

I believe the Washburn Billy T models are the precursor to the Maverick BT series (BT - Billy T) and also for the custom shop WM100 model.  Billy T were made in Korea, BT prefix Maverick made in Indonesia by Samick factory,  and Customshop is made in USA.

Ok enough of tid bit info sharing.. Let's get to the good stuff.  Yes,I got a good deal.. some minor scuffs, crud and dust, minor ding in front by the controls and one ding at the back by the neckplate.  Easy fix: clean the grime off the body and fretboard (still looks like it has enough life in them, the output jack was sticking all the way out and needs extra washer and locking hex nut).. now the bad, the nut has been tampered with.. low A and D nut slot were cut extra low and previous owner attempted repair with some super glue, going to need to replace the nut (either a Graphtech TUSQ or a brass nut). Another weird thing is the TOM bridge studs came out easily with little force - I place some wood glue max in the Tune-O-Matic bridge stud hole - I'm letting them dry and it should be ok to re-seat bridge stud back in later tonight.. the TOM saddle look worn,  may need to replace them with roller saddles..  btw, what is a good drop-in  upgrade TOM bridge?

Nope...they don't even understand what THEY are posting. Their language structures strongly suggest they are from foreign countries.

Spambots....on the other hand.... >:(

General Discussion / Re: is Blue Book dead??
« Last post by AlexWoolard on August 16, 2018, 12:25:49 AM »
Maybe the question ought to be "exactly how dead is Blue Book?"

I've relied on the print editions from Blue Book, then used their website (non-subscribed) to dig into details because it's easy to search with the computer.

A couple of months ago, they lost their collective tiny mind & "upgraded" the site.

Now, NONE of the model listings will show up on a Google search.

Worse, even the basic search capability has gotten STUPID. I used to be able to look up (say) the entire Maverick line & quickly figure out which model I was looking at from the descriptions. Now, if I type in "Maverick" it says "No results found." If I try "BT-3" I get the same result.

Anyone know how to make this work?
Basically, the search feature of the site is dead. I'm also unable to find products that I was able to search earlier before the site upgrade.

Don't you just HATE spammers and spambots?

...of course you don't, you're one of the guilty parties.

Take it elsewhere...there is no music in your offerings.

I hope the link works for you.

Good luck with your sale.
