Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / Wahburn WD18SW
« on: March 09, 2010, 06:22:23 PM »
Elevation music emailed that they no longer had the WD18SW.   I will give them the benefit of the doubt, but they probably didn't want to bargain either.  Now, change the site and quit teasing me!

new over $900 at MF.

Haven't seen one of those (beat up D-15's) go for less than $525 (not counting ship)with most $600-$700 on eBay...WAY too high for me.

Thanks for all the comments.  The local store guy  who ONLY sells Cort, has a l450C (solid mahog top & back, lam sides) OM size.  I've played it a lot and am tempted it plays, feels and sounds very good, especially if I can get it for that price).  He is usually a msrp guy who has that price on his tags and doesn't budge (selling to grandma's for gifts, etc., he gets by with this) but this time he has agreed to meet the net price ($276 and change). I'm seriously considering it.

There's a You Tube video of a guy (foreign language) playing blues on this model back to back with a Martin 000-15.   The Cort has a really good tone.  However, when he first strums the Martin, there's a differnce, not huge, but I can feel it as well as hear it (it'a also a $650 difference).  

I've lived here 20 years and have wanted to buy a guitar from the local guy, but he's never had a model I was that interested in, plus his prices are way out of line (see above).  I live in a very small town and helping out the mom & pop economy and getting a very good guitar could work together ths time. I don't think he's a great tech or anything, but it would be nice to be able to have it under warranty and take it back to a real person.  

Comments welcome

Do these still exist?  Were they solid tops?

since i'm looking to get by on a low price, what's with the D100 that M.F. is now seling for $129 (and change)w/free ship?   I know it's lam all around, and that makes me turn and run...but...does anyone have this model?  Ever play or hear one?

My other guitars are all solid spruce tops.  Not much money now, but i'm gassing for the mahogany sound...ok, just play closer to the bridge and get away from the soundhole and neck area.

So, what's the word on the lam D100?

strong clear wood glue is the exact terminology he used.  Super was my bad.

He says cracks like this happen to lots of guitars, especially Washburn's.   Apparently, he's not a fan.  

Oh, well.  Appreciate the comments!

Has anyone here dealt with Elevation before?

Are you thinking of P-____ on ebay?   I asked the guy with the guitar i'm considering and he said NO WAY did it come from him...he said he got burned bad on a deal with him and will never do anything with him again.

He said the top crack developed during shipping.  Didn't say how.  Weather?  

How does this guitar really sound?  I've seen and heard some recent clips of a Martin D-15 and that has what has sent me off into mahogany madness!   That dry, woody sound.  The guy playing was just strumming the (whatever) out of it...playing Neil Young songs...it was amazing...definitely got my GAS going for one...however, I may have the appetite but I can't afford to eat at Mr. Martin's resaurant, if you know what I mean...even the used ones on ebay are going for over $500.   Not what I want to get near paying for what won't be my main guitar.

Thanks.

He says the crack is on the top surface from the bridge to the edge.  He claims it's an easy fix with a clear super wood glue. He's asking about $175.  He sais it is more of a fingerpicking guitar, sort of hushed, subdued (his words).  The reason i'm so GASSY for an all mahogany is some clips i've seen and heard of a guy with a D-15 who just bangs and gets that dry, woody, amazing tone...incredible.  Is the WD18SW capable of that?

Wisconsin.   However, i'm not sure if that's where the guitar was from.  The guy knows a guy who gets Washburn seconds, b-stock's, etc. so it may not have come from Wisconsin.

He didn't sepecify the crack (finish or wood) but did say that it didn't hurt the sound (don't they always say that?)...

Might have a handle on getting one.  Used, w/small crack (bad weather during shipping).  $155.  

What are the tuners, etc. like?

Seeing and hearing clips of a guy playing a Martin D-15 is what has me so stoked for an all mahogany guitar!

Hava a local store that will meet the internet price on a Cort (OM size) all solid mahogany at around $300.   However, some bills coming up so i'd like to go cheaper, if possible, but still get a nice guitar...

This model (WD18SW) has been discontinued?  Right?  
Can it still be purchased?   Anyone have it...would appreciate comments.   Whole Hog w/solid top at an affordable price.

Do you know anything about the Washburn WD18SW?   Can the still be purchased? It's a whole hog with a solid top...
