The Washburn WSD5240SK and WSD5240STSK acoustic guitars are 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 with period-correct vintage sunburst finish. Quarter sawn scalloped Sitka Spruce bracing joins the top and rosewood sides while the beautiful 2-piece back is split by a vintage-inspired '30s zipper-style inlaid herringbone stripe. The top is framed-out beautifully by an ivoroid binding and the sound hole is expertly bound and finished by a gorgeous ringed herringbone rosette. The tortoise pickguard rounds out the vintage vibe while the fully-carved solid ebony bridge supports a compensated bone saddle for improved intonation, delicately nuanced tone and singing sustain.
The comfortable 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 is perfectly matched to the ebony bridge and a bone nut finishes the expertly crafted instrument ensuring every nuance was attended to.
