Washburn Mouradian prototype guitars and basses


In March 2010 we took a look at a supposed "one-of-a-kind" prototype Washburn Mouradian guitar, supposedly owned and played by Nuno Bettencourt. However, reader FastKev commented that:
This is not a ONE OF A KIND guitar. It is a prototype, but they actually made a total of (8) guitars:

(2) guitars, one neck thru, and one bolt on
(2) basses, one neck thru, and one bolt on

I know because I have one of each from Washburn, with documentation. What I was told when I bought these guitars [was] that Washburn gave one of each guitar to Nuno, and One of each bass to Chris Squire of Yes.
Kev was also kind enough to supply us with the photos reproduced here of his Mouradian guitars, indeed what must be the largest collection of Washburn Mouradians.

  1. Wow, quite the coincidence? This plays perfectly into my theory the Zodiac Killer was not (1) singular individual rather several demented souls all feeding off the same notoriety.

    Case closed! Congrats Kev, they're fantastic.

  2. I have one of these basses in iridescent pearl with a bolt on neck.
