Nylon stringed classical guitars have an ageless appeal regardless of the genre of music you play.

Classical players require a larger string spacing to accommodate their precise finger style playing. Combined with the smooth, full tone of nylon strings, these guitars will meet the needs of demanding classical & flamenco players alike. Coincidentally, classical guitars have found a home with beginners due to the easy on the fingers feel of the low tension nylon strings. Regardless of your ability, a Washburn C5CE classical guitar will help you reach the loftiest of musical goals.

AN AMERICAN ORIGINAL

1883, Chicago. George Washburn begins a legacy of greatness with the first Washburn stringed instruments, bringing quality instruments priced for home musicians. In 1889, Washburn becomes the largest mandolin maker in America.

AGE OF INNOVATION

In the early 20th century Washburn continues to lead with quality guitars, banjos, and madolins. In 1912, Washburn releases the Lakeside Jumbo, the first dreadnought guitar. In 1930, Washburn merges with Tonk Brothers and releases the Solo Deluxe, the precursor of the auditorium style guitar and one of the best-selling guitars created.

AMPLIFIED AND ACOUSTIC

With the onset of the 1970's, Washburn releases the Wing series, our first electric models. The Wing series continues the Washburn standard by delivering a show quality instrument at a home artist price. In the 80’s and 90’s the Washburn Festival series revitalizes the art of acoustic performance, contributing to the rise of "unplugged" performances.
