Southwest Series / Difference between D46SP and D46SPK
« on: September 03, 2009, 12:28:01 AM »
Maybe someone can answer a question:  What is the difference between the D46SP and D46SPK.  My Washburn dealer has the SPK in stock.  Musician's Friend shows a D46SPK, too.  But the Washburn web site shows only a SP.  What's the difference?

Thanks in advance,

Mark

P.S.  That D46SPK sounded better than the solid top D46S!  Ask my wife!

Edit:  I just checked the catalog, and they list all of the D46's with a K at the end.  Early model designation?

Pics can be helpful.  Are there any numbers on the label in the sound hole?  Many members will be able to help with that info.

Yep, in post one.  They aren't the greatest pics, though.  I'll try for some more later...

Pike, they really do!  What condition is yours in?  Mine doesn't have any cracks in it so far, but does have a number of nicks/dents from a LOT of use.  I've read here that some detune by 1/2 step.  When I bought mine, the person I bought it from said to detune by 1 whole step, which I've followed to this day.  I just capo 2 frets to be on concert pitch.  Open string I do get a slight bit of interference from the lower strings (#6 and octave), but this is also because I adjusted the bridge as low as I could for better playability. ;)

Hey, Kimo!

Thanks for the welcome!  I live in Joplin, Mo.  I was very surprised (but very pleased!) when I searched for a dealer in my area!  The place is Glory Day's Music.  I'm planning to purchase the D46SPK when I save the money.  I prefer to support my local Washburn dealer than buy elsewhere.  My wife was with me and commented on which guitar she liked the best for looks and sound.  The D46 was her choice, and I have to agree.  Hey, I was planning to buy an EA16 or D10, but she's convinced me to spring for the D46! It's a beautiful guitar with a rich tone.  The pictures don't do it justice.  The saleman went on about how even the D10's sound beat much more expensive Martins', Gibsons', etc., and I believe it.

Take care,

Mark

Hello to all!

   I'm new to the forum, but glad to be here!  I've played my 12 string Washburn for 25 years now, and I love the sound as much as when I first got it.  My 12 is a fairly uncommon one - it was (as far as I can tell by reading these forums!) imported by BMI in the 70's, I believe.  Mine has the square label shown through the sound hole and the model #W240.  The serial number is stamped on the inner neck support, 730811.  It also sports the BMI plate on the headstock.  If I read the forums correctly, these were the early (first 45 days or so) of models imported from Japan.

Here are some pics:

I played it so much I had to add a pick guard on the front due to pick scuffing! OK, so I get crazy while playing. ;)

I believe another Washburn is in my future.  I went to a local Washburn dealer today and played several D10s, an EA16, and a Southwest series D46SPK.  All I can say is WOW!  That D46 was incredible.  I'll be saving my pennies for that one!

Take care,

Mark
