and i knew it was made in korea coz it was a sticker on it.at that time, i got hooked with electric guitar and didn't want to spend too much on acoustic, it just met my budget so i just bought it home. i knew that brand just because of "extreme" along with their famous tune "more than words" regards red00ecstrat A friend of mine has had a Wasburn since the early 90s.Washburn's style of guitar was born out of the 1920s Chicago raw Delta Blues scene, originating from the many African-Americans who arrived from the Mississippi Delta.From the very beginning of this style of Blues, Washburn has been the acoustic guitar of choice and is crafted specially to keep the Blues spirit going!Understanding these numbers can be difficult, because they seem to hold no information about the guitar.In reality, you can get an idea of the type of Washburn from its model number if you know the basics of how the numbers are arranged.

Telecaster, Deluxe Players Strat 2 Tele partcasters 810-LTD (sitka spruce/cocobolo) 314-MCE (Honduran mahogany / sapele b&s Carr Rambler Goodsell Valpreaux 21, Unibox, Thunderball Takamine 12-string 1966 Strat 1966 Ampeg Gemini I 1964 Kay archtop I've had my Wahburn Festival for almost 20 years, and still play it 90% of the time..314 and 355 just sit in the closet begging to be played.In fact, if I was given one, I'd take it out in my driveway and run over it with my Suburban. I have a 1997 EA-26 Craig Chaquito signature model Washburn, made in Korea.My wife and I met Craig a number of years back at a Washburn-sponsored guitar clinic.I took my EA-26 and Craig played it and signed it for me. The plugged in sound is a bit muddy and the electronics is not great generally.He said my particular EA-26 sounded very exceptional, and I agree. They made a shallow body version that had a Fishman in it that is apparently better plugged in but obviously suffers acoustically.

A friend of mine used to own a music shop and he stocked some washburns electrics as well as acoustics.
