Looking for dates, info and value on WASHBURN / LYON & HEALY. Folks think ‘20s but the thick finish looks ‘70s Asian to me. Note the “gold” hardware. Thanks.

I think you have an original Washburn pot the has been gold-plated and has had an Asian 5-string neck and resonator added.

I believe Bob has got it nailed.

.....I like how they "notched" the heel of the neck, instead of the resonator ! Yikes !surprise

Did we not just go over this one? Perhaps it was on face book, I don't remember.

I aghree with Bob.

I also agree with Scott's "Yikes!" on that neck heel.

A perfectly nice "C" before the modification.

I think that the Resonator is definitely an original, I have one identical. The neck is without doubt Asian.
