Hi,

Does anybody know what kind of wood was used in my guitar? Maple, maybye alder? I`m going to change pickups so i have to known it.
Even i don`t know when it was produced :(
On back it has metal plate with serial number and washburn pro

I`ve been searching for a long time to find out some information about washburn lyon series, but i haven`t found anything :(

For all i know basswood makes low tones. My guitar has bright, trebleful sound and little bit... shallow.

Oh, i almost forgot. Guitar`s body is light weight.
Is basswood heavy?

I see I am not the only one who cant find any info on these guitars...

I just wanna know what kind of wood it is!
I'll be replacing the neck, hardware and elecronics.

If it's alder, 70 bucks is worth it. (local pawn shop has one)

There's no way its plywood, its way too heavy.
