Vintage Japanese Washburn SB-4, also known as a T-Bird, made by Matsumoku in 1982. As you can see by the photos, this guitar has been put though its paces over its 42 year life. Plenty of wear and tear, chrome pitting on the bridge, but functional in good shape. 3-way switch was recently replaced and all electronics work as they should. fret wear is minimal, truss rod functions smoothly. Frets have recently been cleaned with 0000 steel wool and the board has been oiled. Fresh set of #10 nickel wound strings, action is 4/64″ at the 17th fret and neck relief is .012″. Stand not included.
