I'm selling a Washburn J6 archtop jazz guitar. I believe the four-digit serial number (8146) indicates that it's an early Japanese vintage, probably made in the Matsumoku factory. These are particularly sought after, as the craftsmanship and woods are first-rate. The sound and feel are as good as any Gibson I've played. It's mostly original, with a few small changes: the knobs were replaced with black ones (I'll include the original gold ones on request), and the tuners were upgraded to Grovers. The neck is amazing...perfectly straight, with a nice shallow C profile. The frets are big, with little wear. The pickups are very warm and fat, with a nice upper-midrange articulation. The electronics are wired stock: Neck Volume / Bridge Volume / Tone / Tone. It has .013" Thomastik-Infeld flatwound strings. I once put .013" roundwounds on it, and WOW !!!... this thing wails on Rockabilly. But I prefer the flatwounds for jazz. It's in good condition overall. The only known issue is that the gold has worn off the tailpiece and pickup covers. I chose nickel-plated tuners, as they complement the guitar better. I've been playing over 30 years, and I've owned many rare and collectible archtops, but I've yet to find a better deal on a quality archtop than these older Washburns. I'll include a hardshell case. I'll ship anywhere in the lower 48 states for $45. Payment must be received within 7 days. Please email me for online payment instructions. All items are described to the best of our ability. It is guaranteed not to be DOA, but is otherwise sold as-is.
