Superb and very rare 1992 Washburn SBF-80. Professional build quality and amazing sound. These are great instruments and would be a wonderful addition to any guitar collection. I have been playing for over 30 years and have had many guitars over that time.This Washburn SBF-80 has the best set-up and neck action I have ever had on any guitar. The guitar is in very good condition and everything functions as it should. Professionally set-up by my local guitar specialist here in Norwich in 2016 (receipt shown in the photos). The guitar has been very well looked after and has only minor wear. There are some light marks and small dings here and there, but, overall the guitar presents itself very nicely indeed and looks pretty much as-new on the guitar stand. The most significant mark on the body is a small ding to the bottom right front, below the control knobs on the edge of the guitar which has had a small localised repair. The mark is barely noticeable, however, and I would probably need to point this out to you if you came to view the guitar, otherwise you would most likely miss it. WASHBURN manufactured the SBF80 between 1992 and 1995.
It has a semi-solid acoustic sized mahogany body with flamed maple top and single cutaway. This style of guitar was designed for playing live - giving the sound of an acoustic while minimising any feedback problems. Washburn described the SBF80 as follows in their catalog. The SBF80 is the ultimate high volume electric acoustic.At first, the idea of a solid body acoustic seems absurd, but in reality, the SBF80 represents the most accurate reproduction of a true acoustic at concert volumes. The frequencies that give a traditional acoustic it's warm character are the same frequencies that cause body resonant feedback when amplified. So the player can pour on the bass and low-mids without fear of feedback. Computer channelled, semi-solid, mahogany body. 15:1 chrome die-cast tuners. Multi-ply binding on body, neck and headstock. I'd prefer collection in person please, but, I could send the guitar via Parcel Force if necessary.
