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 !
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.
Great info everybody. Thanks.
