Welcome, you are looking at a great piece.
This is the Vintage 1981 Washburn A-20V Sunburst Electric Guitar.
25.5" scale. 1.65" nut width. 8 lbs 7 oz.
.76"-.98" 1st to 12th fret neck depth.
Serial #: 16358.
Special thank you to the Washburn expert who helped me date this to 1981.
The A-20 instruments were in the hands of pro guitarists all over Mtv.
Featuring an ash/flamed maple modified Explorer body design with a stubby headstock, this guitar has the tone and the looks.
Dual humbuckers grab that natural tone and add in sweet medium output midrange.
These pickups measure 7.40k in the bridge and 7.80k in the neck.
This makes for great biting, yet full bridge crunch and thick neck sustains.
Each pickup splits off of its volume control, allowing for great cleans as well.
A fantastic tonal range.
The ash/maple neck here has a comfortable V profile, 7.25" radius, and an ebony fingerboard.
An exceptionally playable neck.
The look here is gorgeous- Sunburst finish showing off the figured top, bound body/fingerboard, matching headstock, ring inlays, and chrome hardware.
This Washburn is in good overall condition- typical marks you expect on an instrument nearing its 40th birthday- examples in pics.
The frets here are clean- set up with action of 3/32" at the 12th fret low E.
This auction includes an aftermarket gig bag.
This is your chance to get your hands on a great 1980s Washburn.
Don't pass this by!
