Ahhh im glad I found this thread,I own one of these.A BT-4B actually,same thing just jet black.

Here's a picture of it,Well one that its in...my camera is dead or I would get a upclose one.



And here's the flyer that features the guitar,bottom right corner.


From my expieriance,This guitar is awesome,I would have easily given 600 bucks for it.It detunes well...very well without adjustment,I go from standard tuning to drop c on a daily basis,im HIGHLY impressed with it.It came with a nice whammy bar for all that wierd ****,I dont use mine but thats just me.The thing keeps in tune very well,about once a week for me is all I have to do.The only problem I had was the bottom 2 strings broke in the first week but that might be my fault.The 5 way toggle is great,good range of sound with that.And most of all...The damn thing is extreamly light and confortable to play,sitting down or standing.I run it through a cheap *** metal pedel and it just screams,all my friends think its a 500+ dollar guitar...Simply put...I'll never sell or get rid of this guitar,I love it.

Here is a email I got from a washburn tech guy.

DEAR WES JETT,

YOUR GUITAR IS A MODEL# BT4B. IT WAS PART OF OUR "MAVERICK SERIES".
THE LETTER "B" AT THE END OF "BT4B" REPRESENTS THE BLACK PAINT COLOR.
YOU APPEAR TO HAVE THE BLACK VERSION.
IT WAS BUILT UNDER CONTRACT IN 2001 BY THE SAMICK GUITAR COMPANY FOR WASHBURN.
IT IS CURRENTLY DISCONTINUED FOR THE USA MARKET, BUT IS STILL AVAILABLE
IN SOME OVERSEAS MARKETS. THIS MODEL WAS KNOWN FOR ITS COMFORTABLE
ERGONOMIC DESIGN, EXCELLENT CONSTRUCTION, CUSTOM-VOICED WASHBURN
PICKUPS, HIGH QUALITY COMPONENTS, AND PLAYING EASE. THE BODY DESIGN
WAS A VARIANCE ON THE USA-BUILT JENNIFER BATTEN ARTIST MODELS.
YOU HAVE A GREAT GUITAR IN HAND. I HAVE ATTACHED A PDF FILE
CONTAINING A PORTION OF THE 2001 THAT PICTURES YOUR GUITAR.
PLEASE ENJOY YOUR GUITAR, YOU GOT A GOOD ONE.

THANKS,
Scott Rickett

Hope this helps...
