I stumbled upon this yesterday

Found this at a local pawn shop yesterday. I did not even know what it was until I brought it home. I am very happy with the purchase though. It is a 1994 Mercury Series Wasburn MG122 Artist. Now there was nothing on the guitar like a model number or anything. So I just took a chance and purchased it. Turns out I did real good. It has the stock pick ups and they are Seymour Duncan JB 59 in the neck and Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates in the bridge. This has a curly maple top on mahogany body. 25.5 scale. Neck plays great but it is different than all of my others. Even had the original hardcase and the Wilkinson trem arm. Anyways this was Washburns custom shop bad boy from 1994. This is a Jackson design guitar when they were partners in the 1990s. It was probably the dirtiest guitar I ever laid my hands on. After about 2 hours of cleaning and oiling the fretboard, it is almost clean now!!! At least my wrags are not turning black anymore. Seems like it was some kind of oil finished neck but not sure. It may be an unfinished neck. Neck is quarter sawn too. It has no major dings or dents but there are a ton of light swirl marks and pick marks in the clear. If I keep it, I may strip out the hardware and start with 600 grit wet/dry sand paper and go up from there until it is glossy again or maybe just keep it they way it is. Some one played the heck out of it but it is still very nice guitar. And I really did get a deal on it too. Anyways just thought I would share with you other axe heads like me.
