The flagship offering in the Bella Tono series is the SC56S Allure; pulling out all the stops and ticking off all the boxes. This model features a solid Spruce top, gorgeous Acacia back & sides and cutaway body design for easy access to the upper frets. The soundboard is adorned with stunning abalone for both the rosette and purfling and is bound in maple. The ebony fingerboard continues with the lush appointments; depicting a beach island scene of a palm tree and birds in flight which are inlaid in exquisite abalone and turquoise. The Washburn Studio body design makes for an incredibly comfortable playing experience while managing to maintain the tight lows, focused mids and clear highs commonly associated with larger body sizes. The solid Spruce top helps define sonic nuances throughout the entire register of the instrument and showcases Washburn’s Comfort Arm Rest. Its full 25.5″ scale length extends an undeniable familiarity to the player and the satin finished, modern “C” profile of the Mahogany neck is smooth and cozy feeling in the hands. For live performance or in the studio, it comes equipped with a Barcus Berry LX4 pickup system.
