This is a real treat, a parlour guitar from around 1920, with back and sides made of beautiful rosewood. It is built in the style of a Martin Parlour guitar.

George Lyon and Patrick Healy started building Washburn guitars in 1864 under the second name of Lyon. At that time the guitars were completely handmade and produced in limited numbers.
Soon the company expanded and even the most elaborate guitar models were produced in series. Nevertheless, great importance was always attached to good woods and precise workmanship.
The company still produces guitars today and is one of the oldest and most traditional guitar maker company.

The top is made of spruce and the back and sides are made of rosewood. The neck is cedar with a light and quite comfortable V-profile. The fingerboard and the bridge are made of ebony. 

This guitar is a joy to play … it has authentic mojo … you can feel it immediately.
It reacts brilliantly when fingerpicking and sounds very good when flatpicking. It has that cool vintage sound you are looking for.

It has been restored – new finish on the whole guitar. Top has been sanded, before the refinish/maybe also replaced. Bridge is a new one too.
Neck reset and new frets – the guitar is in excellent playing condition.

It comes with the original and cool cardboard case.
