What We Think

Killer vibe on this thing! Wonderful little parlor guitar with tone from the old, weird America. Great guitar for a period musician, or a songwriter looking for a comfortable accompanying instrument. The carved bridge is awesome!*

This guitar is from the original, limited edition series of 250 R316SWRK guitars that was produced by Washburn to celebrate the company's 125th anniversary. These reproductions were so popular that Washburn decided to continue production of the model but with one key difference: the guitars in the original, limited edition series were all solid wood guitars. The current line of reproductions are laminates and though the coolness factor remains, they don't match the sound of the original series. 

Condition: Used, Good

Manufacturer's Description from Other

The Vintage Series recreates or resembles some of the great Washburn instruments that were crafted in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Included are parlor sized models as well as a jumbo, southern jumbo and several mandolins available in our mandolin section here. In order to create the "vibe" of a 100 year old instrument that has been well played but not abused, we have added a vintage finish and distressed hardware. Because these guitars are built using modern techniques and materials, the resulting instruments are more durable and in many cases better sounding than their century old counterparts.
