I forgot to tell the forem i picked off the other one of these off ebay same year the only  difference is mine has a black on grey this is black on white. I also set it up with 9;s and swapped the pickups around like on my faceeracer made a world of differce in the clarity and sound. no mud. ertle[8D]

Vintage and Rare Washburns / cts custom shop

i just scored a mint cts custom shop 300 with hardshell case in worn brown like mahogany. Its so hard to believe washburn made so many great not good great custom shop guitars and now just nuno;s and paul stanley;s. Who ever holds old washburn usa made custom shop guitars will be rewarded in the future. History repeats itself.All thats left is expensive or inexpensive imports or custom shop guitars for literally thousands  and months to wait on the build. I own 18 different usa models and consider some my favorites like the faceeracer or the wm300 or grover jacksons mgs and silverado and larado. unreal stuff. Well this will probably be my last one. I own a p3 a e-3oo  know this which completes the centurian series. One of each. ertle[:D]

Vintage and Rare Washburns / e-300 and wm3 mint
« on: July 07, 2011, 01:03:02 PM »
i was able to pickup a mint e-300 with case and setup 740 but i got rid of the 5 way knob and replace the 59 and custom pickups with a set of tesla opus 1;s coil tapped amazing difference also to no avail a mint wm3 looked like it just came off the line. I was using a magnifing glass trying to find divits in the frets or seeds in the finish. I own 17 washburn custom shop guitars no two are the same. I;m equally as impressed with all of them from my n6 and n4 to my usa grover mg;s to the custom shop models i bought.I threw a set of bare knuckle rebel yells in a w1568 man that bad boy screams but still has a beautiful coiltapped sound and clean tone.It amazes me that these guitars are gone forever. All their building are paul stanley;s and nuno;s. what a shame. I;d love to buy a ct4 if anyone has one for sale. I own a p3 and a e-300 this would top it off or a wi 526 thanks for letting me ramble on. ertle[8D]

i just picked up a mint like new one of these gorgous flame top bound rosewood full board .The only thing i didn;t like is the 5 way knob. But i grabbed it at 777 with hard shell case and setup with a stand strap and state sales tax around 850 . These where only made one year. In this condition just wondered what the guys think it might be worth as time goes on and no more washburn custom shop except for nuno;s and paul stanley guitars. thanks looking for your comments and opinions i value them highly from this forem. I was thinking of throwing in a set of bareknuckles i did that with a wi68 with rebel yells replacing the 59 and jb made a world of difference the guitar screams and cleans and coil taps are the real deal. If you haven;t tryed bareknuckle pickups your in for a treat . call steve a custom  metal guitars he;s a dealer and a player and a super guy on top of it. Real down to earth . Love that guy ertle

a local store just had a young guy trade in a face eraser .I grabbed it . It was a flame red gorgous top and neck is unreal. The emgs sound great for the fact they put the 81 in the neck and 85 bridge instead of the way everyone else does. The sound is unreal cleans are great but the fun is the metal wow do these pups scream with a ebony board pinch harmonics are a breeze and playability is wonderful. It came with a 200 dollar case . The owner even threw in a strap and stand for 1100 i thought i did good. Thats pretty much what their going for if you can find one. I can understand why these are rare the craftsmenship is unreal .I;ve never heard these pickups sound this good. I was really planning on putting in a set of bareknuckles till i played it. This is definetly a keeper .A 2006 .Its a shame they built such great custom shop guitars if your a player great as investments maybe in the future the youth of today will get sick of these imports and look to find quality usa guitars down the road until then orevah.ertle

I just picked up one of these baby;s . 450 shipped and setup new old stock from 09 has a single coil stacked duncan s5 nuno pickup in the neck and a jb in the bridge ;swamp ash body ; rosewood fingerboard; grover 18 to 1 tuners one piece maple neck jumbo frets gibson style bridge and tail piece. in a black wood finish . Thiers still another left . I spoke to a dealer who told me the whole story about washburn being sold and it was the new owners that are giving all this away. Its almost over just a few pieces available. I bought a boneyard custom shop in august and couldn;t be happier. Another guy posted the same guitar for 999 this one i talked the owner into a setup free delivery and gigbag. He;s a true gentlemen his name is Tim  hit ebay you;ll find him. ertle

Vintage and Rare Washburns / mg 104
« on: September 28, 2010, 03:10:04 PM »
picked up a mint mg104 . Its a 93 . I think i did well paid 525 for it with hsc and shipping. It will be here this week. I;m stoked. For a mint one what do you guys think of the price. these don;t roll around in this condition alot . I also made a mistake or should i say the guy who sold me a silverado ;well it turns out to be a ls103 flamed maple .I wouldn;t have known if another didn;t pop up on ebay.I paid 500 for it. It looks like it came off the showroom floor. guy said he never played it. I;m startin to believe him. I;ll have tons of pics next week of all my washburns ertle
