Washburn Maverick BT-4Q with Quilted Maple Top in Cherry Sunburst (1998-2002)

The Washburn BT4Q is a model in the Maverick Series, built in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. The BT-4 Models had a distinctive Washburn shape, and this model features a mahogany body, with a quilted maple top. They were manufactured from 1998-2002.

This is a full scale guitar, with a thickness of 1.75″, like a standard stratocaster, but the body is smaller than a fender style strat. This makes it easier for smaller bodies to play. It features a maple neck with 22 frets, a fulcrum tremolo, and 3X3 Grover tuners on the headstock.

Lorien Guitar Recovery Refurbished Instruments

In addition to selling newer factory refurbished instruments, Lorien Guitar Recovery is in the business of recovering unique older Epiphone, Squier, Mexican Fender, Washburn, and other mid-range guitars for resale.

This instrument is a used guitar, and was refurbished by Lorien Guitar Recovery. Unlike a typical used guitar, this one was completely checked out, and tested by skilled guitar Technicians, and then put through a multi-point refresh and refurbish process. That process, described below, is designed to make the instrument fully playable and in most cases, almost like new. But we can’t get every nick or scratch, so we show you detailed pictures of the instrument, and highlight any flaws or finish imperfections. On this instrument, we could find nothing. It is practically new.

Our Refurbish Process

First we inspect the instrument for any physical or functional issues or damage. If the instrument has too much damage or does not meet minimum requirements, it is disassembled for parts and recycled; if it meets basic requirements it is refurbished. This is what we do:

  • All old hardware items that are damaged or non-functional are removed
  • All old strings are removed
  • All surfaces are treated and/or polished; dents and chips are repaired when appropriate
  • Rosewood pieces and fretboards are oiled with Lemon oil
  • Hardware is inspected, screws and nuts are tightened; non-functional pieces are replaced
  • Electronics, if present, are tested, and all contacts cleaned; broken electronics are replaced
  • Saddles and nuts are inspected, and if compromised, they are replaced.
  • The instrument is then re-assembled with new strings
  • The instrument receives a basic setup for playability.


Our Mission

Too many used instruments get rejected, and tossed into a closet, or outright thrown away, or sent to thrift stores. And too many people, who should be able to learn an instrument, can’t afford to buy one or only one that is hard to play.

We believe every instrument should have a second chance, and every aspiring guitar player, should have a chance to buy a good guitar, at a fair price…. This is one of those guitars…. Don’t let it pass you by…. I offer my guitars at a fair price, but open the option for a best offer. We have to reject low-ball offers, but always consider honest ones. Try it; I may be in a good mood today! If you have a low budget or no budget, let us know. We’ll do our best to get you an instrument that is playable and affordable.

Thanks for Looking…
