Found an old Washburn D13 and was wondering what it might be worth?
It has been well played as the fret board is pretty grooved.
Can these grooves be repaired?
Any body have any experience with the D13.
Is it worth picking up?

Thanks

Grooves in the fretboard cannot be repaired easily or cheaply.

It would involve pulling the frets and sanding the board down past the grooves.
Then a re fret.

My advise is leave em, they're character!

Will the grooves affect playability?

If you push the string right down into the grooves, those notes will be a little sharp.
Nothing major though.
If you were playing a minor chord and stretched one string sharp, it could become (a) major, though!
