Based on designs Washburn used over 100 years ago, the R360 Resonator Spalt Maple is a parlor guitar with a biscuit resonator cone. It has the look and feel of a guitar that would have been made in the early 20th century and played well since. It features a Spalted Maple top back and sides with a mahogany neck. The old style slotted head stock features distressed classical style tuners and classy pearl Washburn 1930’s logo and design. The rosewood fingerboard showcases period correct traditional pearl inlays and has a 1-7/8″ nut width to facilitate finger picking or slide styles. A custom cover plate with antique bronze finish matches the tailpiece and tuner hardware. Mirror image f holes adorn both sides of the fingerboard extension.
With the current popularity of Folk and Americana music styles, the R360 Spalt Maple brings a unique voice to the genre, thanks to its smaller body. Players looking to add new colors to their tonal palate via slide or finger style will find the R360 Spalt Maple to be the ideal instrument.
