1982 WASHBURN D12n Vintage Japanese Lawsuit Martin Copy of the Classic Mahogany D-18|
This guitar is very familiar to me as I have had other guitars from another Famous Japanese guitar maker
That was known to make this very guitar already I believe this to have been made by those responsible for the Takamine or Mountain ands Tak made for Washburn import, needless to say this is a high quality
Well built Japanese copy of the Martin D-19 and is Identical to the Takamine F320.
This example was well crafted over 32 years ago making this a true vintage guitar based on the classic These were quite well constructed by any standard fit and finish is excellent typical of this era Japanese crafted and were made with very nice woods too... The top on this guitar is Solid Spruce and is nicely figured and the back sides and neck are all Mahogany, The fingerboard = bridge & head-stock front overlay is rosewood. This combination is know for some sweet mellow tone & good volume...this example is in above average vintage condition its finish still shines like glass and with only a few minor doinks and with its true 32+ years of well taken care of age its natural patina is very nice in deed.
This guitar has the 1-11/16ths nut width itís a comfortable medium profile neck and it plays with ease and has good action, neck is straight with correct relief and frets are still good at 88%. Tuners are original and are working well, no splits or cracks warps or twists or issues of that nature structural integrity is excellent. Volume is very good, tone is sweet, this makes for a very good playing guitar
That sounds great and is very enjoyable all round for the player. Vintage tone!
