A Washburn Raven guitar, made in Japan, Matsumoku factory between 1978 and 1981. This was the 'entry level' model for the Wing Series that included the Hawk, Falcon, Eagle, what have you - I am sure you chaps know a lot more about it than I do. It is in pretty good nick for it's age and plays nicely - no particular issues that I am aware of. Build quality is excellent, as you would expect for a Matsumoku instrument. The high end models had a through neck that, I am told, were a little wobbly - this is bolt on and stable as anything. It sounds immense - somewhere in between a Gibson Les Paul and an SG, with a leaning towards the Les Paul. I think these look cool as anything.
Here is a link to the Matsumoku info page on them, which tells you all the spec:
Here are a couple of pics
it would come with a hard case originally used for a Les Paul into which it fits nicely.
I will be looking for
