Just jumped into my van this morning and came home with me. It was a deal I couldn't resist.

Cool! So what's the deal, man? How's the routing look under the pickguard? Looks like you found a way to get a good deal on some old wood. Nice work!

Soon as I get a little time, I'll get it on the bench. it needs some wiring work and I just happen to have a 3 barrel bridge to put on it.

As is, the thing only weighs just over 6lbs. I think its gonna be a sweety.

The pups are old 70s Duncan stacks that sound pretty good. I may just leave them alone.

I'll be looking forward to a future post from you on how it finally ends up. It should be a real winner! :AOK

Cool. A few tweaks and you'll have a '68 almost like Brent Mason's.

Let us know when you have the "after" done.

The mods would have been circa 83/84 or a bit later judging by the trem and pickups.

While much of this board would be skeptical, there is probably someone out there who relly wants to get his hands on the Washburn Wonderbar.

The bridge is a Duncan Hot Stack telecaster bridge pu, the neck is the "stack"/noiseless tele neck and the mid is a Stack strat pu. At least that is my best guess.

Cool. So a 68' would be a top loaded body rather than a string through ? or were the string though holes plugged ?
