The D-20-12 was made from late 1983 through early 1985. All acoustic Washburn guitars were imports between 1974 to 1993.  I know that Washburn used builders in China and Indonesia for acoustic guitars.  My electric guitars were made in Korea.   Sorry... I'm not exactly sure where yours was made.  George is just the middle name of one of the founders.  Referring to the traditions of Chicago is a marketing effort.

You could use some electrical contact cleaner on the selector switch. There might be some oxidation that has formed.  However, a selector switch  can actually go bad depending on quality and/or environmental factors.  Scratchiness when you change the selector position verses buzzing would be more common to hear.

If the buzzing happens when you're already in the position, there could be a few possibilities.  If the height of those pickups are adjusted too high, you could be getting feedback.   In other words...  If the pickups are too close to the strings.  The easy fix would be to simply lower them.


Are you sure that it's a Nuno or an early extended cutaway. They're similar...   You're probably right about 1982.

You're not even close to the value of most of the guitars that you're asking about.  I hate say it...  Stick with a 333.

I've already been asked...Definately NO..

To help you out a little....
Jump at that ST-PRO.  I'd buy it, but I'm running out space. I doubt that you'd get a better deal.

What did that one crazy white haired lady used to say??  Stop the INSANITY!!!!

I can't do it. I still a have a thing for it and frequently jam with it. I like a big axe sometimes.

Dude....You seem to really want a Dime guitar. They show up on eBay all the time.

It's a set neck verses thru.

Signature Series / just added the D3 dime slime

Nice collection...

Refer to the Washburn FAQ listings. There are several resources to contact regarding replacement parts.  I feel bad that your shop has left you hangin...

I'd suggest taking a few measurements to see what your options are.  Thread size and post spacing should be easy enough to determine.  Maybe a different music shop.
