Sorry, this listing is no longer available.


Washburn SB-8 T-Bird Deluxe With Rare Set Neck Hardshell Case Included!

This Washburn Wing Series T-Bird Deluxe was manufactured in Japan's famous Matsumoku factory where some of the best guitars were made. The guitar is in very good condition for a 33 year old guitar. It does have a some dings and scratches that is noted in the pictures. The case is in great condition. The neck is straight, frets are like new, and the electronics work as they were intended. It also has a very nice Birdseye Maple neck! This would be a fine MIJ guitar to add to your collection.
