|I have a Kahlor tremolo on mine. It also came with the original wonderbar but it needs to be fixed and installed. Even has a hard case. Thanks eBay.
|Has a tremolo and locking neck, the guitar store in town says it's a Washburn tremolo but can't find another one like it.
|The pickups were swapped for some japanese humbuckers produced under Gibson license, apart from that, it's pretty much original
|Body has dings, chips and scratches. Neck resurfaced and re-fretted. New Puritan zebra humbuckers and all new electronics. All original hardware. Was rebuilt Dec. 2017 and resold. Original purchase $40.
|I have had my A10V for five years it is missing a fine tuner knob on the bridge. Other than that it is in fine condition. It is the only A10V I have ever seen with a metallic purple with red and blue metal flakes in the paint. I have been looking for a replacement knob. I think that this specific A10V was a prototype. All of the ones on the internet are sunburst paint jobs. Short of the black and antique white ones. I am wondering how much is it worth. can anyone give me info on A10 V guitars? Mine has a U.S.A. stamped in the potentiometer pocket.

I have owned my blonde 1983 a10 for about 20 years. It has a Kahler flyer tremolo with a locking nut. Original power sustain pickups. It also has a 3 ply black/white/black pickguard. Have never seen one with pickguard. Which leads me to believe it was custom made for someone, via Kahler/locking nut/pickguard. It is the best most reliable guitar I own. Good quality, well constructed, plays and sounds great. Everything I could want in a guitar. From throaty to clean, high to low it never lets me down. Get one if you can find one.

Best guitar I own and I have many! Guild made a Burnside model that is a lot like my Washburn a-10. They were a made in the early 80's and they were a joint project between Guild and Fender. I have a 6 string Lance, a Blade, and a Lance bass with a Kahlor tremolo. This is a beautiful guitar. I'm glad they sound as good as they look.
