I've never heard of it - And I know a lot about Washburns!

Let me look into it some. I'll edit or post if I find some info.

Those are old guitars. They haven't made them in a while! My school has a superstrat style Mercury and its pretty good despite the fact that they probably haven't changed the strings in 4 years and the electronics are a little shoddy from misuse of stupid kids.

They were made in the early 90's, and there seem to be a lot of versions. Some are good, some are really bad. Which model are you looking at?

All the ones I saw were shaped a little like an Ibanez RG.

I decided to buy it like 20 minutes ago due to the very low price it was, the seller says it's like new and doesn't has a photo but he told me that it looks like this:

wich is a mg-44 if im not mistaken (have you seen another washburn model that looks like this?), this guitar seems to be good. Let's hope this is a good buy.

They are decent axes. I played an MG-24 and I thought it was a decent axe for the price ($200 Aussie).

Hi there guitar peps,

Two days ago (25/6/11) I bought a rather cool secondhand Washburn Mercury MG30 for 99 from my local music shop here in ille old Aberystwyth. I've briefly checked out some info about this guitar online and found out that its an import model (it's got the W on the pick-ups), more than likely from the far east, that was available between 1993 to 1996. Its got a black paint job with matching headstock, 24 fret rosewood fingerboard, a nice quality stainless steel licienced Floyd Rose, H-S-S pick-up configuration with a 5 way blade selection switch and single tone'n'volume controls....an absolute bargin for such a playable instrument.

The only thing that I need is a replacement single lock-nut block with the allen key screw and a replacement bridge saddle clamping block for the G string, then this guitar would be next to perfect.

Anyway the serial number is 3091002 so if anyone can give me some more info about this guitar that would be well appreciated.
