Lots of Arias (7), Electras (2), Westburys (9) and others. No Westones listed, though:

I was just checking it out - as you say, A20. This is going to be my next quest. So, if anyone out there is looking to move one on just give me a shout, good condition and reasonable price (well you can't fault me for trying).

That looks exactly like the Quest brand on the Mats site. Wasn't aware of that connection until now.

Quest has always been something of an enigma.
He has some real beauties there.

The Daion and Westbury look to be in extremely mint shape. You will notice he states he is in no hurry, knows what they are worth, and will CONSIDER selling them for the right price.

Doesn't look like there will be much in the way of bargains available with this seller.

This one might be up for sale shortly.

It's mint and will want top dollar.

Is that a reissue A20. I Have owned two 80's BBR A20's(sold one) then a reissue A20 just like that one. The older ones have a better neck profile and sound much better with the older Washburn power sustain pickup(super distortions)IMO. The only ones I have not had my hands on are the 90's a10 reissue with a Floyd Rose tremolo.

Reissue on ebay now
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Washburn-A20-Explorer-style-guitar-Case-is-X-tra-/261148796619?pt=Guitar&hash=item3ccdae66cb

Good luck

Also finding a case is difficult. I bought a reissue that came with an original case then I sold the reissue.

Also a super nice on at guitar center. Search for Washburn A.

Sgt, I think I'm going to hold off for a while to get some gear tokens saved up. TBH, I really like the concord and it would be a hell of a wrench to let it go, but I'll PM if the situation changes.

Laughing I do like those red geetars! Fortunately I don't like those Washburns, or at least not right now.

I'm checking out one of these Washburn AV15Vs (like Westbone's) later today that has a pricetag for less than $100.

OK - so the aforementioned local Washburn A-15V is now mine. $99 with an ancient leather Dean Explorer case. I know this is the wrong forum to expound on it, but if anyone's interested, I can send (or post) some before & after pix once I get it cleaned up (that's going to be a week or more). Looks like Westbones, except the knobs & switch are white. Sounds amazing (very Tele!), clean pots, spotless frets but some love chips & dings here and there. She's kinda an ugly/pretty girl... I'd call her FuG-Lee. I truly didn't have the spare cash for this, but suddenly work is blowing up so the occasional splurge will not hurt so bad.
