1993 Washburn SB-80 Wing series reissue made in Korea with hardcase

This guitar was only made in 1993 and 1994 at the Samick factory in
Korea. It has a mahogany body with an arched bound bookmatched flame
maple top and a Transparent Red finish highlighting the beautiful back
wood. This guitar has a mahogany neck and a 22-fret bound rosewood
fingerboard with pearl wing inlays. 

Condition: 9/10
Honestly,
for the age of the guitar it is in great condition! A couple of small
marks on the back of the body but nothing major at all. See pictures

Neck: 9/10
Great neck, next to no use on the
frets! Highly polished frets. This guitar will go
for years. Lovely inlays and nice dark Rosewood

Hardware: 8.5/10 Some tarnishing to the pickup covers, tuners are in great shape

Electrics: 9/10
Sockets,
pots and switches etc are wear and tear items. The electrics on this
guitar have been tested and are in excellent working order, but my
standard disclaimer is it’s a used guitar and one must expect SOME
occasional electrical ‘scratching’ noise, crackling and popping when
adjusting pots and switches. In our opinion the electrics on this guitar
are in perfect working order in normal play but there’s no guarantee
how long they will stay in this condition, but years and years would be a
good guess!!

Playability:
This guitar has been lovingly set up by Jon, one of the UK’s most highly regarded and experienced guitar techs.
That
doesn’t mean this guitar is the best playing guitar ever, it just means
that he has taken the time to set it up. Adjust the action, intonation
etc so that it plays as well as can be expected and stays in tune as good as any guitar of this type does.
We all have differing styles and
demands from our instruments. Some of us like fast n low actions for
fretboard burning licks, others prefer a high n mightly action for show
stopping windmills and downtuned heavy riffing and everything in
between. No one set up suits all!
This specific guitar has been set
up with a low action and plays beautifully across the neck

Case:
With non offical hardcase but very good quality.

Priced with all of the above in mind but feel free to “make an offer”.
