Vintage and Rare Washburns / D-250S

Wish I were right handed as this Washburn seems like a steal (http://www.ebay.com/itm/WASHBURN-SOLID-WOOD-HIGH-END-ACOUSTIC-GUITAR-D250S-1999-/220901480626?pt=Guitar&hash=item336ec118b2). The retail on this was 1900 so @ 280 and free shipping it just feels like a good deal. I could be wrong. There are also 2 righty D-21S's, one first series and one 2nd series at killer prices, at least to my novice eye. (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Washburn-D-21S-Solid-Spruce-Top-Acoustic-Guitar-w-gig-bag-/260901805859?pt=Guitar&hash=item3cbef59f23)& (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Washburn-D-21S-Solid-Spruce-Top-Acoustic-Guitar-w-gig-bag-/260901811825?pt=Guitar&hash=item3cbef5b671) I suppose I could have the saddle slots filled and re-routed but I hate seeing it done to lefties so it would be hypocritical to do it myself. Man I wish I were right handed sometimes...[:(]

Well I am here to offer a second opinion on the D-21SLH I received in exchange for a lost 1978 Takamine F-360LH and I must say that the more I play this thing the more I like it [:D] ! Maybe it's just a mental thing or whatever but I feel that after 2 weeks of daily playing I can be more objective. I did make 2 minor changes to it since it had the original nut and saddle which were cheapo plastic. I installed Tusq brand nut and saddle and this baby came alive [:0] ! I also slightly lowered the saddle, tweaked the truss rod and I gotta say I think I've been bitten by the Washburn bug. Though it is not on par with any of my Martins (not that I thought it should be) it has given me satisfaction and taken the sting out of losing my old faithful Tak which I had owned for over 25 years. The serial number is 8723005, which I have to assume it is a first series D-21....right Mr Smith? What is really cool about it is how it seems to be made for capoing (?) and stays in tune after the capo is removed. Great guitar for fingerpicking but not so much for heavy strumming, but that could be because I have lowered the strings to accomadate my fingerpicking style. It does excellent work for stuff like Pink Floyd's Brain Damage, Wish You Were Here, Fleetwood Mac's Landslide etc etc. I got the fever and will be looking for other LH Washburns from that era. Will post a pic as soon as I figure out how. [8D]

Was given a D-21SLH as a replacement for a Takamine F-360S-LH that was stolen from a guitar shop in Dallas. I cant find any info on it but feel I might have gotten the short end of the stick on that deal. It's not a bad sounding guitar by any means but it cant hold a candle to my late great 1976 Tak. I come with hat in hand looking for answers as there seems to be little if anything at harmonycentral or acoustic sites in general. Thanks a bunch for any help.
