Washburn is a brand started by George Washburn Lyon and Patrick Healy. Formed in Chicago, Illinois, Washburn has been building stringed instruments since 1883.[1] Their first electrics were made in 1976, in Japan. By as early as 1985, Samick began producing their entry level models, and by 1988, mid-level models as well. Production by Samick ended in the late 1990s.
