This is my 1970 - 1980 D-64SW Acoustic Washburn guitar, it was a high quality Japanese guitar. it was owned by my grandfather Leonard Rivait.
This, sounds, feels, and plays like a dream, the best guitar I have EVER played. Tell me what you guys think!

beautiful Brandon, worth keeping permanently even without the family history!

Was he an avid player? Did you have to have the frets done or the neck adjusted?

Quite a legacy. What kind of music are you playing (i read your other thread)

Note the web page. Get use to seeing that. This place tends to be a bit addictive. Just make sure you have an office chair with no arms, then it won't take as much time away from your practicing! [:D][:D]

haha, well, actually my office chair has arms, but when I angle the guitar just right, I can play, and search the web at the same time! Haha, am I lazy or what?
The music I play, well, it's all verry different, it goes from rock like Rock you like a hurricane, by the Scorpions to stuff like Awake, by Secondhand Serenade, I am verry open to the different kinds of music I play. But right now I have just a cheap $50 - $75 electric (Crescent) and soon im thinking of saving up for a nice electric, something like a PRS GE SE Custom I think it's called, but overall I want the J7, but the chances are, not going to happen soon, If it were to happen, I would probably completely change the pickups, to something a bit heavier.

About the frets, and the neck adjustments, no, I haven't had anything done to it, Next chance I get to out of town, Im going to get it looked at and everything.

Be sure to contact Squint if you go after a J7. He is quite knowledgable when it comes to Washburn's jazz guitars and may have helpful information he could share with you.

Only difference of mine, from the one in the picture, is the headstock is the same colour as the back of the guitar.
But, nice, im proud to have such a nice guitar, and even prouder to have a guitar that my grandfather would play to me, so I would fall asleep to as a child.
