Whipsy, welcome to the forum!

Based on the label, you have a D-10, all laminate mahogany guitar in a wine red finish, built in China in 2002.  The D-10 line is said to be the biggest selling model.  Nice looking guitar, and I really like that finish on it.  Current value on that one probably runs around $130-150.  Is that an original Washburn case with it?  And how do you like the sound of it?  Always the most important consideration.
On and off newbie player for about 20 years.

'10 Washburn WMJ11S
'09 Cherry Epiphone Dot
'13 Epiphone Thunderbird IV

Thanks for the welcome and Info.. much appreciated.

The case that is with it, Has no washburn markings on it, So would assume it is not an original Washburn case?  The guitar sounds and plays great.. Unfortunately it generally gets neglected and just sits in my wardrobe though.

Might want to give it a little refreshing tune up and set it up how you like it. It's realistically a far better sounding instrument then any in it's price range. I would keep it rather than sell it (unless I just simply needed the cash, but that's a personal issue).

The comparisons at that price mark just don't even come close (except perhaps some Takamines)

I have a D1Q/VS. Ser.# 90608584. I would love any information. Mainly why I can't find anywhere online to get am price quote. All the sites say unavailable because it has been discontinued. Would this make it more valuable. But like I said any info would be greatly appreciated.

Washburns, while great instruments unfortunately face the same de-valuation as buying an Aston Martin DBS.

I.E they are worth about 50% less the minute you drive it off the lot :)
