There is no serial number information or tracking capability for pre-1978 models.
If the instrument does not have a serial number, it is likely a factory prototype or sample, and it is impossible to gauge its exact age.
Because Washburn does not purchase used instruments, we do not track this information and are unable to answer this type of request.
To have an instrument professionally appraised, we would suggest the fine folks at Gruhn (Gruhn.com) or any retailer that is in the market of purchasing/trading pre-owned instruments. Our website is a great (and environmentally friendly) way to view our current offerings. Buffalo Grove, IL 60089 I didn’t get an owners manual for my instrument. Presently, there are no specific manuals for Washburn instruments.
You can confirm the year of manufacture by visiting our guitar archives reference pricelists/ catalogs.
