ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA, January 25, 2018 - The 135th Anniversary Made In the U.S.A. Revival Solo Dreadnought (RSD135-D) is an all-solid Sitka spruce and mahogany model based on Washburn’s rare 1937 (Model 5246) Dreadnought. Only 135 of these guitars will be produced, and they are being made at Washburn’s custom shop with a body shape drawn from a direct tracing of the 1937 model. Using a solid Sitka spruce top and scalloped-X “moonwood” European spruce bracing, along with African mahogany, the tone is loud and rich. It revives much of the original’s aesthetics, featuring a Washburn “smile” bridge, Revival ‘30s style headstock and Solo Dreadnought tortoise pickguard. Designed to optimize player comfort, the Solo D is built with a neutral-C shaped neck and Graptech Ratio-tuned tuners. Each guitar will be have a serial number from 1883-2018, representing Washburn’s 135 years of making great guitars. This model comes with an arched-top hardshell case for protection and storage.
