The Washburn Mercury MG700 is an import Washburn guitar of the Mercury series. The specifications of this particular guitar is not clear. According to the Washburn archive it features gold hardware, 24 frets and Schaller locking tuners. However the guitars on the net that I found usually have Grover non-locking tuners. The large consensus is that Washburn imports of this particular period are made in Korea. But some internet sources say that some were made in Japan and Indonesia too. I found some MG700's being sold as Made in Japan featuring black hardware and 22 frets. If someone knows more about this particular model. I'm open for input.
