    Exclamation Vintage washburn model 115

    Hello
    Yesterday I purchased a Washburn model 115 serial number 64417. I have found it next to impossible to find concrete dating information. I think it is from 1889 but am not positive. Can anyone help?
    Much love
    Scott

    Get a copy of Hubert Pleijsier's book Washburn Prewar Instrument Styles. You should be able to identify the instrument from the catalog pages listed.
    "Bargain instruments are no bargains if you can't play them". These are the words of J. Garber.

    Not 1889. Moe likely around 1912 more or less. Follow Mike's recommendation above.
