What makes this guitar special: This one is a very rare bird, and it certainly sings like one. All research indicates this was likely a one-off, manufactured in the second year of the USA Washburn Custom Shop in Chicago. It sports a bolt-on neck with the infamous Stephen’s Extended Cutaway, but doesn’t have the packed upper register of the EC series. It is most similar to the LS series of the time, but instead of a pickguard housing, hosts 3 direct mounted single-coils, with a Two-Point tremolo bridge instead of a Floyd Rose. It’s built like a tank, with a two-piece solid maple body and solid maple neck, for maximum durability, and a set of deluxe Schaller locking tuners for extra tuning stability. As with all our pieces, it’s been professionally inspected and setup by our expert in-house luthier, and will arrive ready to play right out of the case.Cosmetic condition: Terrific shape for its age, with some light surface and handling scratches throughout, along with some small dents and dings visible under particular lighting. There is some light scuffing and a couple small dents on top of the headstock, as well as some visible oxidation on the hardware.Body: Contoured double cutaway two-piece maple body in cherry sunburst finish with 2-point tremolo bridge.Weight: 9 lb, 7 ozNeck: Slim, slightly rounded 1-piece, 5-bolt maple neck with Stephen’s Extended Cutaway. White side dots and pearloid dot inlays. Sperzel deluxe locking tuners function perfectly. 1 11/16” nut width, 25 1/2” scale length. Rosewood fingerboard is in terrific shape and frets show almost no wear, with a ton of life left in them. Neck is straight and wheel truss rod is fully functional.Electronics: Triple Seymour Duncan single coils (Neck-11.69K ohms, Middle-12.49K ohms, Bridge-13.08K ohms)with 5-way pickup selector switch and knurled chrome knobs, 1x tone, 1x volume.Case: Original hard shell case included.
