    Bought it today (12-10)!
    I play the classical guitar, but have always wanted to get into the electric(never played one or a dreadnought). Tomorrow, if all goes well, I'll be picking up this '89 Washburn WP-80 Les Paul. If not, I'll be looking for a Les Paul elsewhere until I get one. If you all have any tips or anything with the transition from classical(will always still play classical/flamenco) playing to any other genre, feel free to offer the advice.
    BTW, I'm in NC.

    Thanks,

    i had a white wp 80 for a while. screaming little guitar. i loved it. i just had too many lp style guitars laying around so one had to go. if i remember, i was as heavy as a boat anchor, but great sustain.

    Yea, it weighs in at about 9.5 lbs, I believe. I've heard from many sources, it's one of those near-exact if not exact copies designed after the black beauty, hence the weight and lawsuit from Gibson forcing the stop of production of these by Washburn after the one or two years it was made. Man, the white must have looked good. The pic I have up here doesn't do it justice by any means. Will have to get some better pics up.

    Oh, and bought it today!

    Hello Domz

    welcome from a new-ish member myself. This is one of the best forums on the net, for all things guitar and not just LPs.

    I play several 1980s WP-type guitars, including the 35 (which is an ES-335 copy, and quite agood one) and a Standard copy with a maple top which (like yours) is a pretty good LP copy.

    Mine is also nearly 5 kg, which is close to your 9-ish pounds. I would love to know the age of mine. How did you find out yours was 1989?
