Washburn Guitars is excited to announce that Allman Brothers Band and Gov't Mule legendary guitarist, Warren Haynes, is joining the Washburn family. Warren will be playing and endorsing the new Washburn WSD5249 Warren Haynes Signature Model acoustic guitar. This Made in USA model represents the pinnacle of Washburn acoustic guitar artistry while celebrating Washburn's 130 year heritage and fits perfectly with an artist of Haynes' caliber.
As current vocalist and guitarist in both Gov't Mule, The Allman Brothers and Warren Haynes Band, Warren is perhaps the hardest working musician in rock. He is known for his extremely tasty and heartfelt playing and is very particular about his tone. In addition to his heavy touring schedule, he does solo acoustic shows and sits in with others whenever he can. The list of people he's played or jammed with reads like a who's who of famous and world class musicians of varying styles including Eric Clapton, Steve Miller, Peter Frampton, Bob Dylan, BB King, Coheed and Cambria, Sheryl Crow, Dave Matthews and performed as a member of The Dead on their 2004 & 2009 reunion tours. And that's just the short list and part of the reason he took the #23 slot on Rolling Stone Magazine's top 100 guitarists of all time.
