The Washburn WSD5240SCE acoustic guitar is based on the original Washburn Solo Deluxe from 1937, which is similar in size to the popular OM shaped guitars commonly found on the market today. We feature a Solid Sitka Spruce top and quarter sawn scalloped bracing which masterfully joins the top and rosewood sides while the beautiful rosewood back is split by a vintage-inspired '30s zipper-style stripe. The top is framed-out beautifully by 3-ply binding and the sound hole is ringed by a gorgeous herringbone rosette.
A mahogany neck joins the body at the 14th fret and is adorned with a '30s style rosewood capped headstock with intricately inlaid pearl appointments and period-correct Washburn logo. High quality Grover® Butterbean tuners ensure smooth, high-ratio tuning accuracy and unmatched stability. The seamlessly bound ebony fingerboard couples perfectly with the ebony bridge and the bone nut finishes the expertly crafted instrument ensuring every nuance was attended to.
To facilitate live performance, we've added a cutaway for upper fret access and it features a Fishman Isys+ tuner/preamp which allows the player confidence in spot-on tuning. The built in preamp provides natural acoustic tone and allows for control of volume, bass and treble to dial in perfect sound.
